There ARE people who want to help you...
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

Hastina, there is help out there. Sadly, too many turn a blind eye, but there are people who really and truly want to and can help. The police are not the place to go, though I do wonder how it is that your mother could have stabbed you and the police did not charge her, or that Child Protective Services didn't remove you from the home. That is very odd.

Hastina, your spirit can be broken, but it can never be killed. Your soul and spirit will live on regardless of what was, or is, done to you. You must believe in your SELF, in Who You Really Are in order to overcome the horrendous abuse you've had to endure. Please consider contacting Child Help at 1-800-4-A-CHILD (1-800-422-4453) in order to talk to someone about the abuse you are still dealing with. They are staffed 24/7 with professionally trained counsellors who will listen to you. They are not a reporting agency, although they can help you through the process of reporting if you decide to disclose the abuse. You can visit their website by copying & pasting the following URL into your browser: http://www.childhelp.org/get_help

Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

Even animals would never treat their young so sadistically
by: Anonymous

Hastina, I'm sorry that you guys didn't have a good mom. I really hope that your so-called mom finally gets held accountable and then incarcerated for all those terrible crimes that she committed against you guys and I also hope that you and your sister are in a safe place now because you guys really did nothing wrong. Counselling can also help you guys get rid of all the brutality that this sick excuse of a mother had subjected you guys to. Be brave, Hastina, and stay strong! I am hurting for you and your sister.

I sure hope you are in a BETTER place NOW
by: maurice

Hastina, your mother may think she can kill your spirit but she can't and won't because you are brave, you are strong, your inner spirit will be the winner over her. She can physically abuse your body by beating and bruising it but she can try to kill your spirit with emotional abuse but you won't let her: You'll fight back: I hope things have worked out better for you since I first made a comment on your story Hastina: I hope you had a friend who helped you tell someone who listened and cared and did something to put your mother away: Don't Quit, Don't give up on yourself: Darlene has given you great hope in her comment: You are intelligent and you will act on her advise and encourageing loving words to you: Be safe: stay safe: Always believe in yourself

The Horror
by: Anonymous

Hastina, your mom is deeply troubled and sadistic. I hope you end up working to get out. Beating you, throwing you against the wall and even stabbing you are enough to throw the woman to jail for a long time; next time she lays a hand on you again, please consider reporting her ASAP; children are gifts to treasure, not to abuse.
