Horrific and unimaginable child abuse...
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

Cassy, your "father" wasn't a man; he was a "big ole" coward who heinously committed crimes against his precious children. He does not deserve to be free. But the scars he left you do not have to be reminders of what he did to you; they can be a testament to your remarkable strength of will and courage. I congratulate you on being able to move on from such horrific child abuse.

Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me. It will give hope to others who have also suffered greatly.

And You Survived!
by: Linda Settles

You went through hell
None can deny
But remember, child,
that you survived.

Not just your body
But your soul
Was broken child
and none can know

The pain you felt
When terrorized
But come what you
you have survived.

Surviors share a
commond bond
of Suffering and
of seeking God.

In the quiet place
of buried hopes,
Of broken dreams
They've learned to cope

With sorrows of
the deepest kind
A keening wail
of soul and mind,

Springs from the depth
of justice wronged
Wrung from hearts
that once have longed

For love and found
the cruelest kind
Of offerings from
twisted minds,

Of those who spin
a private hell
For the innocents
who fear to tell.

Oh, look and see
Inside your soul.
A wounded warrior
takes control

And battles well
Because she knows
The grave can't hold
her trembling soul.

She's seen the dark
and lived to tell
And soared above
the tug of hell.

Take heart! Rejoice
in each new light
You've braved the dark
and you survived!

Your "father" was not a father. He was a coward. And I praise god that there are survivors such as your self to help others who go through abuse. I think that you telling your kids about your "father" and thats why you sometimes cry is right, and amazing. I strongly believe that sometimes children need to be aware. I don't know if u have heard of it but i am in a program called BABES. We use puppets to talk to kids, for the most, part about drugs and other things. But every so often we get to use a certin puppet, a rabbit, for things like abuse, physical emotional, and sexual. We can only use her every so often tho because we need to have a counsaler present in case a child does come to us and say "that happens to me" Last month that happened to me. I was in a 5th grade class and the child came to me after the show and wanted to talk to me alone. So i was allowed to take them into the hall way and she told me everything, i will not go into details tho. at first she was shy but soon after about two hours of coloring she told me. i am very happy to say that this child now lives with a very good home. the parents are now being prosicuted. i still think it is amazing that they were able to come forth and tell me.
