Child Abuse in a Foreign Country
The abuse didn't happen to me. It happened to someone that I loved very much.
I was working in a foreign country, and became involved with someone who I thought I could trust. This person became very abusive toward me. She wanted to adopt children, and I was against it, knowing that she was unstable. However, she manipulated me into agreeing to help her. I regret helping her so much now. She is the foster mom of two children now.
When I lived with her and she brought the first boy home, he was only two. I loved him very much, but she abused him physically, verbally, and emotionally, and she turned on me when I intervened. It broke my heart. In the end, I had to leave the country, because she threatened to kill me one night.
I left, and I saw her again only years later, briefly. She still has the boy. I pray that she will not harm him, but that she will come to her senses or that someone else stronger will intervene.
It all happened in a country where there are no laws to protect those who are abused, so there is no legal recourse. I don't talk about it to people because not many understand. I have only really told one person. It has scarred my life.
If you have a moment and believe in God please say a prayer for this boy. He is 6 now.
