You have NOTHING to be ashamed of. NOTHING AT ALL. I understand your need to speak to your birth siblings, but they'll have to be ready for it. Perhaps they're not ready just yet, but may well be in the future. Right now, you must focus on you and your daughter. I also understand your need to "forget" what happened, but remembering in the right way can help you to be powerful in your life. I strongly recommend some form of counseling to help you with this. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

Hallo David, I am so sorry what happened to you, this seems to happen so much today. It was bad for you being taken out of your family home then in a new home where the family should have been caring, loving and compassionate all they did was make matters worse bu abusing you.
Unfortunatly David the pain and confusion that I belive you are feeling will not go away on its own, I would encourage you to seek out a counsellor. I sincerly hope you are not taking any blame for what happened on yourself, you were the innocent victim here, you are in no ways to blame for what happened.
I would also encourage you to look into some parenting classes this might help you to feel that you are not alone with your feelings.
It is not easy raing a child when you have not had good role models in your life. I am a survivor of many types of abuse and i have two grown up boys, I did not have good role models either but with the help of my husband, good friends and on going therapy I do not feel I have done such a bad job. But you will need to seek therapy for yourself, you need to unload all of that pain and suffering that you are no doubt carring around.
I have siblings as well but they survive in denial
I have come to terms with this and make no attempt at trying to share with them because they do not want to face what happened and I feel that it is not my job to enforce this.
Look after you and that lovely baby of yours, give your baby all the love, care and protection that you did not recieve. Take joy in raising your baby and if you feel things are getting on top of you go into another room, do some deep breathing count to 20 then start again. Be aware that you are not repeating some of the verbal behaviours that happened to you.
God Bless you David and keep safe and healthy.
