"Branding" is what your family did to you...and SO much worse...
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

What your family did to you is called "branding". What this man is doing to you is illegal. I urge you to contact Child Help at 1-800-4-A-CHILD (1-800-422-4453) in order to talk to someone about your situation. They are staffed 24/7 with professionally trained counsellors who will listen to you. They are not a reporting agency, but they can help you through the process of reporting. If it is unsafe for you to speak to anyone on the phone, please contact: National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. There are people out there who want to help you, but you must reach out to them. While I thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me, what's more important is for you to understand that there is a better life out there for you. If you can write your story to me for my site, you can make a report to save yourself. And you are WORTH saving! You ARE special and precious and worthy of love, dignity and respect. Believe it because it's true. Please contact someone who can really help you.

Correction to Ciel:
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

My sincere apologies Ciel, I inadvertently included the wrong contact for your area. It should be ChildLine on 0800 1111. Check out their website at www.donthideit.com . The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children however is correct.

You are Important
by: Robyn

You should never have had to deal with what you did. NEVER! and im here to tell you, that it is possible to be born again. Spiritually anyway.
God can help heal the hurts and take away the burdens. It wouldn't happen over night, but it would happen! The man you are living with is a very sick man. I wish you would call help like the childhelp hotline. Please do something!

Sadistic Monsters for Parents
by: Anonymous

Ciel, what your so-called parents did to you was very sadistic, pathetic and ungrateful. I'm sorry that you didn't have a good family; my parents put me into similar stuff, too, and that stinks! I hope your cruel, vile, sadistic, twisted, perverted excuses for parents get incarcerated for all those terrible crimes that they committed against you. As for that stranger they sold you to, are you still with him now or are you with a different family? God bless your soul, Ciel.

Know your loved in a big way from a distance
by: Anonymous

Ciel, Darlene's site is your stepping stone to greatness. By telling your story to her and her visitors you've been brave and true to yourself. You can write intelligently about all that happened you to Darlene, now do it to the authorities with the help of your believeing and closest friend (s) you will need their support Ciel. So be brave and strong for yourself and your own future. You are the most important person now to care for. Sadly you can only minimise your scars and that branding mark on you to make a life for yourself. Those scars will be around for some time but only YOU can begin to erase them and get on with your own LIFE. There is life after going through all you have Ciel. You have friends who love you for who you are. Highly inteeligent and very capable of putting things in place to make a life for yourself. You're a big girl now in your own right. Darlene in her comment has as always said beautiful kind encourageing words to you and about you. I believe the same about you. Hi get and have a good mirror image of your beautiful self soothe slowly away those abuse scars with nice soothing creams and be gentle on your lovely self.

I might understand
by: kristen

Hello Ciel,
I understand some of what you are going through. Some sentences you wrote that resonate with me.

I was not abused in the same way that you were but I come back here and I read terible stories and your just resonated for some reason.

especially this line
I have grown to "love" him, if you can call that love. I mean, he's a gentleman if I'm obedient

I still live with my husband that was aranged for me and I do love him somehow. So there is this need in me to talk and yet at the same time to remain anonomous and I think that is what I am hearing you say.

So I just wanted to say you are not alone. I am praying for you. I hope you are able to work yourself out.

I will pray for you
by: Anonymous

I am praying for you. You can be reborn again. Jesus offers that gift to everyone. Ask Him to show you what to do. He will honor your request. I am so sorry for your suffering.

trying to be free is not going to be easy for you
by: maurice

Ciel,be brave, be strong, great you had the courage to look up a site like Darlene's. It is a beginning which I hope some day you will turn out to be your saving help. Your Parents were certainly brutal and sadistic. Your young innocence as a child was taken from you by their behaviour. You could do nothing about it, it is and was not you fault that too can be a strength for you to build on. Living at this person whim as to how he treats you cannot be easy for you. He seems mor loving of you, treating you with some respect, But sadly you are his house girl to treat you as he wishes until you find a way out for you. Being free of him and your parents will not be easy, try you must to get away and begin to live your own life, Keep believeingsome day you will be away from all that life you were born into. I feel for you, keep searching for good people who will help you. You are a brave teenager, you are educated to a degree so you are inteligent and therefore know all that happened you was wrong. I wish you well in all your efforts to be free to live your own life. Love and respect yourself enough to find others who will love and respect you. Find a true friend or friends who will walk with you. Be your strength to get free of that Man and your parents. I can, I will, I must for my own peace of mind and sanity. Don't Quit trying.
