My Mother is a Child Abuse Survivor
by Felicia P
(Huntington, West Virginia, USA)
I found out that from the age of six years old, when her father left, that my mother was raped and abused by her stepfather. Not only did this man sexually assault her, but he assaulted his niece and even his own daughters. My mother, a very courageous individual, has been scared for the rest of her life. She has a horrible self-image, numerous failed relationships, and she suffers from severe depression, panic attacks and often feels dirty of things she has done. She is still able to go through her daily life though, going to school to obtain a nursing degree, meeting a very nice man with whom she has planned to spend the rest of her life. My mother has come a very long way from the little girl she once was. I am very proud of her.
