You could not be more mistaken. No matter what, what this pedophile did to you will never be your fault, and it will never be your fault if he goes on to sexually abuse another child. Fault is ALWAYS on the shoulders of the offender because the offender CHOOSES to offend. Always remember that. And you didn't fail at anything. The system failed YOU. Would things have been different if you had told before; you'll never know for sure, because you don't know what you don't know. And to beat yourself up for the decisions you made as a little girl, a vulnerable little girl, is absurd. You were a LITTLE GIRL, Emily. You did what you thought you had to do in order to stay as safe as you could. When you knew to do something else, you did. You went the distance, which took so much courage. I'm SO proud of you for what you did to protect yourself (and others), at ALL ages. Love yourself for the beautiful person that you are, Emily, because you ARE a beautiful person. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

The Horror
by: Anonymous

Emily, you were given a raw deal because your mom and that monster of a stepdad are so twisted that they don't even know how to taker care of themselves, let alone be parents to you. You certainly deserve so much better than what those inhumane brutes did to you. Oh, and shame on the system for running away from you all the time instead of locking up that sick beast of a stepdad for all those terrible crimes that he committed against you. I know what it's like to grow up in such a world where the so many people are greedy and uncaring and even almost as evil as those beasts who should've known better and loved and cherished you. As for your mom, I am just as disgusted by her reaction towards you trying to turn to her for help and even throwing you down the stairs for telling her on that beast; I hate women who choose men over their own children because children should always come first. Oh, and you're not to blame for their sadistic behavior; they are to blame because they chose to offend and abuse you. You were the child; they were the adults; they had all the power and they only misused that power over you. Oh, and please tell someone you really trust and keep telling until he/she will finally listen to you and help you. You can also try talking to your dad about it.

If it happens to someone else....
by: AnonymousT

it will NOT be your fault. It would then be the systems fault for not putting him away the first time. They needed evidence & sometimes it's a hard thing to prove. This is not your fault, it's simply the circumstances of the case.

You keep saying no one cared. People here care. Advocates on hotlines care. People care.

You have survived & soon, someday you will thrive. Your life is not done, you have a lot to do & experience & heal & grow.
