Brother Uncle and Saviour

by Nathan
(Unknown Location)

When my brother announced that his wife was pregnant my heart jump and i was so happy for him and my sister in law. My self i am gay and the thought of having nephews or nieces thrilled me to the core. I became godfather and an uncle when my twin nephews were born. Help my brother in anyway i could, buying a cot, pram, clothes basically anything they needed. After the twins were born i guess i sort of purposely became part of their lives without intentionally intruding. Years went by and eventually i would have my nephews for weekends, i would spoil them rotten. Did not care about the cost i was happy that my brother and my sister in law included me as part of the family.

Until one night my nephews sneaked into my bed, they told me that's what dad does. Basically i felt sick and confronted my brother who excused himself by saying it was nothing that we did not do together while growing up.

I have reported my brother, it was not an easy thing to do, i have not seen my nephews in almost a year.

I can only imagine how difficult it was for you to learn about your brother, and then to hear what he said to you. That he could actually believe that it was okay to sexually abuse his own children and use what he did as a child himself as an acceptable excuse to justify his unacceptable behaviour is stunning. You did the right thing by reporting him. I can only hope there will be repercussions for what he has done and for the lifelong harm he did to his own children. And I hope that you find a way to get support for all the feelings & emotions you are experiencing as a result of this...betrayal.

I send you love, light and healing energy, Nathan. Thank you for sharing this story with my visitors and me. Doing so may help others decide to do what's right if they themselves are in this kind of situation.
