by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

Based on what you wrote, it's obviously that what this woman did to you and what you witnessed her doing to your brother has left deep wounds, wounds that haven't really healed at all. But those wounds are also as a result of the fact that your father did not protect either of you. That was his duty, and he failed. Five-niner is a symbol of your courage and strength. The fact that you told showed such strength, because you did it through grave fear. You really do have much to be proud of. Not only did you save yourself when you told your sister, you saved your brother too. And though she didn't spend much time in jail for what she did, she paid the ultimate price by losing the both of you. But what's most important is that you and your brother are now safe from her clutches and abuse. Please talk to your mother and stepfather about what you are feeling. Tell them honestly that this is still really bothering you. You see, Cassidy, you need help dealing with the repercussions of what happened to you and your brother. Please seek out some form of counselling in order to get the help you need. But you must first be honest with yourself and then with your parents. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

Talk to your mom and step-dad
by: Anonymous

Cassidy, you and your brother were given a raw deal because your stepmother was so twisted in her own ways of thinking that she didn't even know how to take care of herself; let alone be a stepmother to you guys. She didn't know how to love even herself; all she ever knew was hate so she should've known better and loved and cherished you guys. Oh, and she was a truly sadistic brute...and a cowardly one too because only cowards would do such things to such innocent, helpless children you guys once were. Oh, and shame on your dad for running away from you guys all the time instead of protecting you from that ignorant beast of a stepmother! If she didn't want to be there, then she should've had the courage to leave instead of sadistically abusing you guys. The path that she chose was and still is inexcusable. Oh, and I'm glad that she went to prison for all those terrible crimes that she committed against you guys because you guys did nothing wrong. You are not to blame for her sadistic, ignorant behavior; she is to blame because she chose to abuse you. You were the children, she was the adult; she had all the power and only misused it over you. Oh, and I'm also glad that you're in a safe place now; I hope that you talk to your mom and step-dad about the horrendous abuse that this sicko of a stepmother had forced you to go through and that you try counselling.
