by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

None of what happened was your fault. NONE OF IT! Your father didn't die because of you; he died in a car accident. You're still carrying the guilt that small children carry when something goes wrong in their life...but that doesn't make what happened their fault. It is innate in children to believe that they are to blame when something terrible happens in their lives. I repeat, that doesn't make it so. The people responsible for the abuse in your life are the ABUSERS. Period. End of story. They were the adults, you were the child. They had all the power, and they misused that power in the most despicable ways. Aaron, you need help dealing with all you've endured, and putting all this into perspective: that your dad died in an accident that had nothing whatsoever to do with you, that your stepfather was a pitiful excuse of a human being, that your foster father was a pedophile, that the system betrayed and abandoned you (I'm still not clear about why this foster parent wasn't charged), that your mother was incapable of protecting you (I find it incomprehensible that she is still with such as abusive man, that she chose to stay with him instead of keep you and your sister safe), that the school and the system were criminally negligent in not keeping your records sealed. I can only hope your grandparents see how important it is for you to get the professional help you need. Don't allow your Self to become bitter, as difficult as that is to do given what you've lived through. There are good people on the planet, Aaron, people who really do want to help you. Reach out for that help. You certainly deserve it. I send you love, light and healing energy. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

Such uncontrolled sadism
by: Anonymous

Aaron, I gotta' say that, t be honest, your story is one of the most disturbing stories I've ever read.

Your stepdad is deeply troubled and sadistic; he's just too dangerous to be trusted. As for your foster dad, he cannot be trusted either; it's a shame that he decided to be just like your stepdad. For starters, never be alone with abusers again.

As for your mom, she could've done more to protect you from that beast. Oh, and as for your dad, you didn't cause him to die and it's not even your fault that he died in a car accident.

Anyway, I'm glad your grandparents are with you now because they're so sweet for doing that; I just hope you try talking to them and that you try counselling. Oh, and look into reporting that beast as well as the foster parent as well.

You will be my angel
by: Anonymous

Aaron, I am so sorry to hear your story. I am in pain reading your letter. My heart is bleeding for you. Please leave your stepfather's home. Your mother should have also been there for you when your father abused you. Even just being called a faggot, your mom should have protected you from that. Is there anyway you can leave their home? Please call Ohio's Childhelp 800-422-4453. Tell them about your story about your foster father who abused you so they make sure they don't leave you with another abusive guardian. Call your local t.v. station Channel 12. Google their number. Unless you tell THE RIGHT PEOPLE, the abuse will never stop. Aaron, you will always be in my prayers. I will always remember you and your story. Do not ever think that God is not watching everything that has happened and still happening to you. Your abusers will get their time. Please, please tell somebody and move away from your stepfather's house. You are so very special and no one and NOTHING can ever change that. NOT EVEN your abusers. You are strong. Stay strong and good. Do the right things in life and do not let these evil people destroy your character. Trust in God. THERE IS A REASON FOR EVERYTHING. We might not understand that here on Earth now, but God will lead you to the right direction. Please keep praying to God. But also, please find a way to move out. I will pray for you always, Aaron. You will be my angel. I have 3 young kids, and you will be one of all the abused children that I will always pray for. THIS ABUSE HAS TO STOP. It is NOT right. Please tell someone, Aaron. Please move out. I know it is easier said than done. But if you tell the right people, you might be in a better place. God bless your, Aaron! I will pray for you before I sleep tonight.

From Darlene - Webmaster: Anonymous, perhaps you missed the latter part of the story. I gather Aaron is now living with his grandparents. Here's to keeping hope alive for his continued safety.

Dear Darlene, my apologies. I admit, I did not get that Aaron has moved out. I was so moved by Aaron's story and at the time, I could not read his story any longer and I did miss the part where he said he is now living with his grandparents. It was too painful for me. I feel so much for Aaron. But I am so happy to know that he is now in a much safer place.

Aaron, if you are reading this, please know that me and my whole family pray for you everyday. Since I read your story, you have stuck in my mind. My kids know about you too and I tuck them in bed at night and we all say a prayer for you. Because of your touching story, I started searching online on how I can be of help to abused children like you. And reading your story, I question why the system fell short in screening out your foster parent. Whoever is responsible for assigning foster parents should look into EVERY foster parents' background and revisit the children at their foster parents' homes all the time to see their condition. I want to help and be involved and I will continue to search online so I can volunteer and help children like you.

Aaron, always remember that there is "someone" who is always thinking about you. That is me. I wish I knew you when you were young so that I could help you. But again, God has plans for all of us. We don't understand it now. But keep your trust in God no matter what. Don't let your experiences ruin you. Be a good person. Do only what it is right. Be strong and keep your faith in God. I would love to hug you tight and give you the love I give to my own children. Please know you are loved. Aaron, if you are reading this, please tell me how you are doing now. You are always in my prayers, Aaron. Stay strong, my angel! God loves you!

wow
by: Aaron

thanks for all the encouragement everybody. I didn't expect anyone to reply. to Darlene, my foster father did get convicted. I didn't care to know exactly what happened to him but yeah he's definitely being delt with by the law. To anonymous...i dont know what to say. thank you for all of the prayers. i can feel them working in my life. i'm doing fine. really. my mom and little brother are visiting for christmas sans the stepfather so everything should be good. in school things kinda simmered down but, i don't care too much what other kids say anyways. i know who i am. but again thanks. i'm honestly doing better but i dont think i'm quite ready for therapy..I rather try to forget and move on than have all that resurface.

I am so happy you are doing okay now, Aaron!
by: Anonymous

Dear Aaron,

Thank you very much for replying. I have been checking your page everyday to see if you wrote back. You're always on my mind. Everytime I pray and talk to God, I always ask Him to help you heal. Last Sunday, my family and I went to church and prayed for your healing and safety. I am very happy to know you are okay now. I cannot tell you what God's purpose is for all that has happened to you. But there is a reason for it and only our Creator knows it. I pray that you just continue to be a good person. Do what is right. I don't know how I would take the experiences you have had if it happened to me. You are a very strong person and I commend you for that. I wish I could protect you and give you the love that wasn't given to you. Please know that I will always remember you for as long as I live. My kids and I will always include you in our prayers. We love you, Aaron! Stay strong and keep God with you always. Please keep us posted, whenever you can, on your situation.

Love,

Aaron, You Will Be Helping Other Abused Children Through Me
by: Anonymous

Dear Aaron,

How are you today? I hope you are doing good! In fact, I ALWAYS pray that you are doing GREAT!!

I am here again to tell you how much you have touched my heart. Your story has compelled me to help and support abused children.

I mentioned to you earlier that after I read your story, I searched online for an organization where I could offer my services to. I did find one and I contacted them. Tomorrow, Saturday, my whole family will be at this Christmas Gift Wrapping event. We will be wrapping presents for abused children in my state.

My ultimate goal is to work closely with the children and mentor, love, care, support, and guide through their healing process. This is a direct result of you sharing your story to us. You made a difference by touching my heart that led me to help other abused children.

I cannot wait to meet the children tomorrow. I want to hug them and let them know they are not alone. I wish I could physically hug you too, Aaron! Like I said, you are my angel! You survived a tremendous abuse and now you brought the best in me by wanting to do something good for other abused children.

If it is not too much to ask from you, please keep in touch with me through this page, Aaron. Check in here once in a while and let us all know how you are doing. You are loved, Aaron! You are loved! My family and I love you and we will show you that through our services. It is you who enlightened and touched our hearts and souls.

Keep in touch, my angel! I hope you have the merriest Christmas!

Love,
Michelle a.k.a. "Anonymous"

Thank you, Aaron!

Hi Aaron,

How are you? I hope you had a great holiday!

I woke up on the wrong side of the bed and I am feeling a little down today. But I thought of you. If you can handle the things that were thrown at you, then I can too.

You are my inspiration. Thank you for helping me cope with my own problems.

Love,
Michelle

WTF?
by: Ali from Oz

Dude, just wanted to send some love from down under here in Australia. Reading this at first made me shocked, then angry, then sad, and finally inspired.

You are a legend and I can't believe how you put up with all of that horrible s**t and still keep your head up and do your best to move on. You are an inspiration, and if I ever met you I'd give you a bear hug for being such a champ.

It still makes me incredibly angry to think that those idiotic a**hole kids would tease you about something as effed up as what happened to you, and further victimise you. I think you should tell your actual friends, A. they would only like and respect you more knowing what a trooper you are after having dealt with so many hard knocks, and B. they'll have your back when it comes to the jerks who call you faggot. I seriously have to say that everyone who has bullied you or called you that can go F*** themselves.

Wish there was something I could do to help your situation. Anyway hope you have a nice day and good luck with everything man. One piece of advice I thought I might share btw is weights; have you considered lifting? I know a fair bit about working out, bulking up, getting strong, martial arts, boxing, kung fu etc so if you want any advice feel free to ask. I can say they are definitely a great way to build confidence, work off steam, self develop, and it makes d*****bags think twice about knocking you when they know you could crush them with one hand tied behind your back. Certainly not advocating violence here, but you know what i'm saying... Anyway, peace dude and god bless.

I hope your new year is going well!
by: Michelle

I have not forgotten about you, Aaron! You are ALWAYS on my mind. I always pray that God protects you and help you heal, be free and move on. I hope you find somebody who will love you whether it be a mother/father figure, a girlfriend, or a friend. You are an amazing persona and I am inspired by your strength. I wish I have that courage you have. You are stronger than you think and you inspire me to face my own battles everyday. I love you, son. Keep moving on.

Love,
Michelle
