When I received a child abuse story from Jenna,
I decided not to post it because she is a minor, because she may not be in a
safe place, and because she is in need of help.
Do you want to be heard? Share your story!
Jenna, when I tried to reply to your story my reply came back as undeliverable, possibly because your e-mail address is part of a public domain. I am posting my reply on this page in hopes that you read it and get the help you need.
Morning, Jenna. From what you tell me about how
your mother did not deal with your sister's assault on you and leaving you
bleeding while she drove away, that is abuse; neglect, at the very least.
You need to find help; and I'm not in the best
position to provide you with that help. You need support, and you need to
report what is happening in your home.
The website listed below is the USA reporting site. It will give information of who to contact, depending on where you live.http://www.childwelfare.gov
I have tried to report your case myself, but there is no way to identify who or where you are. You must report this abuse yourself.Jenna, I also strongly recommend that you contact Child Help at 1-800-4-A-CHILD (1-800-422-4453). They have professional counselors on hand 24/7/365. Though they are not a reporting agency, they can offer you support. They can also guide you through the process of reporting. Please call them. You need their support and understanding.
Please let me know how things work out for you.
I really do care what happens to you.

As a third grader, a fourth grader, a fifth grader, and finally, a sixth grader, I was abused. If you had known me back then, you would have never guessed.
