My name is Luz and I've been living in the
Unites States for 7 years now. As a child, my dad immigrated to the
United States by himself, leaving my siblings and me, because he was having
problems with my mom.
My mom was always working and never had time for us. So me, as the oldest one of 4, had to take care of my younger brothers and me. On the weekends, Mom started sending us out of town to her Aunt's house. My aunt wasn't married, and she looked at me with a strange sight, but I didn't care at first. But one day, I was taking a shower when I noticed that she was inside the bathroom, looking at me. I wasn't scared at first, but then she started touching me. She did it several times. I told my mom, but she never believed me. But when my dad came back, I told him and he took me with him. I don't never ever wanna go back again!
