Not just children NOT getting along . . .
by: Darlene Barriere - webmaster

Your parents, grandfather and your grandfather's wife should have recognized what was happening, Heather. They should have known that Alisha, then Jordan, were inflicting harm onto you. And they should have intervened to stop it. When they didn't stop it, they continually put you in harms way. They all failed to protect you; protecting you was their job and your birthright.

I'm very glad that you no longer see these two children; they were obviously bad news. You mentioned that your grandfather's wife was taking care of both her grandchildren, Alisha and Jordan, because their mother had been on drugs. It's quite likely that during the course of living with a drug addicted mother that both Alisha and Jordan were victims of sexual abuse. Sexualized behaviour is a sign of sexual abuse. I'm sure you've asked yourself "why did they pick on me?" The simple truth is, because they could. But regardless, you have to know that none of it was your fault, Heather, none of it. You are not to blame.

I hope you've told someone what these two children did to you; there is every chance they are doing this to someone else. And I sincerely hope you are getting some form of counseling to help you deal with the emotional trauma and your depression. You're worth it, Heather.
