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.
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.
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.
