So understandable...
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

Callie, whatever the reason the police did nothing after they were contacted by your mother, I cannot say. It would have been a simple matter to have you examined by a doctor, who would have been able to find "anal" evidence that you had been sexually abused. I am surprised that Child Protective Services were not called.

Although I'm sure I don't have to say it here, I will anyway: None of what happened was your fault, Callie. NONE OF IT! Your father was the adult; you were the child. Of course you'd want to help your daddy; what loving child wouldn't. He took advantage of that, and of your vulnerability and age. I do hope you decide to seek out some form of counselling for all this. A counsellor may be able to help you with the emotional turmoil...indeed, I'm very concerned about your last passive but revengeful statement, where you compare what you believe is a lesson he's learning with this "big man" and how you do not believe he deserves "to die or to be harmed in any way". While I completely understand those feelings, please consider getting help for this. Trust me Callie, if you take a revengeful spirit with you into your adulthood, it will come back to haunt you.

I do thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

A few words...
by: Emme

Callie, your story is that of so much pain. I can see it in the way you tell it. but revenge is not the answer. Yes, i wish also that someone would've beat and raped my father before he died, but I realise now that I have children that I would not be the same if I knew that had happened to him. YOU wont be either, and as right and justified as it feels to know what happened to you is happening to him, it can only cause you pain later on.

All of my love and wishes for you,
Emme
