Child Abuse Story From Amy:

I am 17 years old. When I was 5 or 6 years old, my family lived with my aunt and uncle. When my parents, aunt, and brothers were gone, my uncle would molest my two sisters and me. He told us not to say anything. This went on for about 3 years.

One day, it was just my uncle and me. He pulled out his penis, and my aunt walked in and didn't say anything. She let it happen. She didn't try to stop him.

My sisters finally told my mom, and she came and questioned me about it. I told the truth. Well, later that week, my mother told my dad (my uncle was his brother). He didn't believe a word my mom said. My mom called the police, and they didn't do anything about it. They let my uncle off scott free.

After my mother called the police, my dad started physically and emotionally abusing my sisters and me. When my mom found out about that, she divorced him. My grandpa even started to molest my sisters and me. It stopped when my mother found out.

A year later, my mom remarried. A couple years of him being my stepdad, he started to molest my sisters and me. It was horrible because it was happening all over again. My mom found out and threatened to divorce him, so he finally stopped.

My sisters and I went through that for about 7 years max. Now I don't want to have a daughter (when thinking of having a child) because I don't want the same thing happening to her, just like me.

I live with my lovely boyfriend, mostly to get away from my stepfather. But I am happy now. My life is going great.
