was 1 year old when my mom started sexually abusing me. I went to my dad's on
weekends. He also sexually abused me. My mom would have a lot of boyfriends.
They would tie me to her bed and make me have sex with them.
I started to bleed. My mom took me to the doctor's, and said I bopped it on my
bike. My doctor knew, but I didn't have enough guts to tell.
When I was 8, I was put in foster care. I am 13 now and adopted.
