Talk care of your SELF in the process...
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

I can only offer you a place to vent, Ginny. And also a suggestion that you seek out some form of counselling in order to help you deal with the aftermath of going through such betrayal and sexual assault. I admire that you want to effect change by making your brother accountable for what he did to you. I only hope that you think enough about your SELF as you do about the cause you have embarked upon. Taking care of your SELF is critical to living your life, not just with purpose, but with some semblance of peace. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

A willing enabler for a mother...and a vicious pedophile for two brothers
by: Anonymous

Ginny, I am sorry for the brutality that you and your sisters had to go through at the hands of those two brutes for brothers as well as at the hands of your uncaring and criminally neglectful mother. I really hope that you're in a safe place now and that those sick and sadistic excuses for brothers, alongside your uncaring mother, get incarcerated for all those terrible crimes that they committed against you. Have you tried counselling? You can also call the police on your "brothers" because they will not stop abusing and raping anyone until someone forces them to stop, so please call the police on them ASAP. I am hurting for you.

I can never imagine
by: Mary Passman

I would like to say from the bottom of my heart, you are a soldier. At the age of ten no girl should be a mother. As far as your brothers go they may get away with it in this life but Gods grace I pray will not save them. I have a story of my own that I am not to sure I want to share. I have been dealing with mine for about 5yrs now and I over come it everyday. For your sisters I would like for them to know that God sends angels to watch. Though It may not feel like it we are always in Gods hands. From the deepest part of me thank you for sharing this story. God Bless yall.

What goes on behind closed doors in the name of being family.
by: Maurice

I'll never know what goes on behind closed dooors. Through my many years journeying with Families as part of my socia work except in the real cases that I have befriended to help I will never know what goes on. Daily I hear similiar situations like yours Ginny. To the world around them these families seem perfect, sadly to their children these Fathers and Mothers are totally inadequate to love and cherish their children. The rigidity in which some parents still raise their children is most frightening. As for your situation Ginny being given the responsibility of a mothers duties at 10 years of age. Your parents surely had their priorities wrong. Not believeing you when you tried to be honest with them especially your mother what your brother (s) put you through. He sure was a control freak, a beast, a deceptive cunning brother. There was none of your brothers man enoiugh to beat the crap out of him for what he did to you and all the otthers he molested. He needs to be taught a lesson. You are ever so brave to stand up and be counted. Well done. Don't be afraid, Please oh please be safe. With such a big family you had to be brave to stand up against This sicko of one of them. Darlene her words of Love and support are from her heart. Her words can and will help you only if you saty safe and close to be people who will care for you. Do get the professional help of a counsellor. Have a friend or two who will hear you each time you speak your pain and hurts out to them. Love, honour and respect yourself, your body. so in turn you will not let another ever abuse it again. Build up your Self Esteem. Build up a good mirror image of yourself. I believe this to be most important. So look at the wonderful me in the mirror, the bigger the better, love that me in the mirror, love every part of you, no negative thoughts just positive one's like I am, I have a beautiful etc. be gentle and kind to the parts that were brutally abused by that sick brother of yours. soothe, caress these parts back into their natural beauty parts of you. It is not silly to ask this of you Ginny. Think about it. Go on, now be good to yourself

Thank You All
by: Ginny

I appeciate everyone that took the time to read my story.

I am doing better and I did starT seeing a counselor earlier this year. I recently accomplished part of my goals i graduated this summer with my Bachelor of Social Work degree , I also hold an Associates of Arts degree.

What began my healing was going back to school which helps to bring out things that you enjoy doing. I didn't realize that i enjoy writing poetry. I have written over 20 poems. I will share one. My poetry comes out of the things I have suffered.

Title; WHO TOLD YOU THAT I LOVE YOU

WHO TOLD YOU THAT I LOVE YOU,
THE YEARS OF RAIN THAT HELD THE PAIN
WHO TOLD YOU THAT I LOVE YOU
THE TIME YOU STOLE THE OTHERS TOLD
WHO TOLD YOU THAT I LOVE YOU
THE LIES AND SCHEMES, THE DREAMS THAT FOLD
WHO TOLD YOU THAT I LOVE YOU
SHE WAS ONLY THREE, AND I CRIED WHEN SHE TOLD ME
