Child Abuse Story From

Child Abuse Story:

This child abuse story from Chelsey page was created August 9, 2006 and was originally posted on July 12, 2006 as story #23.

Chelsey is from Virginia, USA.

The following child abuse story from Chelsey depicts emotional abuse and sexual assault.

There really weren't enough details in Chelsey's story to identify the child abuse effects on her. What I can tell you however, is that she is now thriving in a loving and nurturing foster home.

Okay, I just wanted to tell you that I have had a rough life, but not the worst. My mom is in jail, my dad is too worried about everyone else, and the rest of my family is really really crazy.

Well, for the start of my child abuse story it's kinda weird, I guess. I went to stay with my dad and grandparents for the summer. My best friend that I had always gone to church with lived pretty close to my grandparents. I really liked her mom and stepdad. No one would ever believe this, but all this happened.

I had stayed at her house a lot--nothing had ever happened [before]--but one night, I slept on the couch. Her dad thought I was asleep and he kept coming through the living room in his underwear. The last time that he came through the living room he started to rub my leg and touch me in places that he should not have. The summer was almost over and I went back to my house and I told my cousin about it. She told my aunt. My aunt, none of my family believed that that happened, so even though he did that I still had to go to church with the sick bastard and watch him pretend to be something he was not. My family is so "fact" about everything.

Just about two months ago my family gave me away, so I'm now in a foster home, very happy and very spoiled. I want them to adopt me.
