Child Abuse Story From Selina:

My name is Selina, and I was raped at the age of 8. My mother and father were getting married when I was 4. I am now 19 and in very bad health conditions. It all started when I ran away with my mother an hour before the wedding. She told me that she loved someone else and didn't want to marry my father.

We lived in Chicago in a very small house. We ran away to New York City. I met this man my mother was in love with for the first time. At first he was a little creepy, but then I got used to it. We lived in New York City till I was 8.

One night, my mother went to a casino with some high school friends. Her new boyfriend was to watch me. At that time, he would look at me very strangely.

When I was getting ready for bed he came in with four pieces of rope. He was naked. He told me to take my Pj’s off and lie on the bed. I asked him why, and he kept saying if you don't, I will hurt your mom. I was very scared. I was 8, and didn't know what to do. He tied me to the bed and RAPED ME TILL I BLEED. My mother came home to a very quiet house. She looked in my room and screamed to find me and my bed covered in blood.

My mother couldn't find her boyfriend anywhere. Lucky for me I was still alive, but in very much pain. I was in and out of the hospital till I was 15. Today I still need the hospital by my side.     

I am glad to know that it will never happen again!
