by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

You said you've landed in hospital as a result of being beaten...I don't understand why the health care professionals didn't report suspicions of child abuse. Your adoptive father is sick and twisted; and he WILL do even more serious harm to you if you don't act. I strongly urge you to contact one of the hotlines listed on my stories page, depending on where you live, in order to talk to someone confidentially. You don't deserve to be mistreated, Brenden. You deserve to be loved and treated with dignity and respect. You are NOT worthless. You are worthy. Always remember that. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

No One Will Look Down on You
by: Anonymous

Brenden, I don't know where to begin.

You are a very brave kid, and you absolutely *DO* deserve to be loved. I know how being abused can screw with your mind. I was 14 when my Dad went psycho on me, so I do get you.

You're on the right track forgiving your abuser. Took me a long time to get there.

I can understand the need to be strong. When my Dad beat me into the ground, I always stood back up. But sometimes, the strong thing to do is admit when you need help. That's the strength to face *YOUR SELF* as well as your monster. That's one thing many abusers can't do. That's why they beat kids.

I won't lie. You're going to have a tough recovery ahead. I have so many issues, I was offered a subscription rate. A lot of people really be very sad if you went down in flames over this.

No one will look down on you, and I will give more respect than to pity you.

You are very strong and brave for dealing with this for so many years. Now *Get Help*!! Please!! I'm Begging!!!
