Sick and twisted "parents", that's for sure. What is so troubling is how quickly the school simply wrote you off as a discipline problem. Stealing food is a clear sign that a child is being neglected. And the so-called "sickly child"...they chose to ignore what was so damn clear. They all bear responsibility for what you were forced to endure.

As for your brothers, they were probably terrified themselves. Too terrified to do much other than after care. And even that was risky for them.

I'm still reeling at the very idea that a judge would ask a 3-year-old whether or not s/he wanted to live with that family. It was idiotic on so many levels.

The other thing I don't get is a system that allows "adoptions" to be handed back to the state. I understand the foster system (barely) but adoption? That's supposed to be a permanent arrangement. I can only imagine the depth of your pain of abandonment, betrayal and rejection.

Jody, at 4 you had no choices or options or power. All that was taken from you cruelly and by so many. At 44, you can now take that power back. You DO have choices and options now. I sincerely hope you exercise those options, and that you're getting some form of therapy or counselling for what you have endured. You certainly deserve that kind of help. You deserve to be treated with dignity and respect and love. Start by treating your Self with that dignity and respect and love, if you haven't already.

From one survivor to another, I send you love, light and healing energy. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me, Jody.

Thank you

Dear Darlene,
Thank you for sharing my story.
Life has been a hard road for me. When my 'mom' and I escaped at 13, she took me to Alabama... I was free of my prison. I was interested in the world around me.. But had no knowledge of it. I needed special classes and she decided I was to much for her to handle. She took me to the DCFS office and told them she didn't want me. She then ran to her car and drove away.
I still have issues. People come and people go. They never stay.
