The best advice I can give you is to get into some form of counseling in order to help you deal with what happened to you as a little girl. That is really the best place to start. As for your kids, be there for them in every way you can, and keep them in therapy. Only, monitor the therapy and therapist. If it's not working for them, consider alternative treatments with other forms of counseling, because not all therapists are created equally. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

A willing enabler for a mother...and a vicious pervert for a stepfather
by: Anonymous

Hope, what your so-called mother and her slimy second husband did to you was pathetic and ungrateful. Your so-called stepfather was a disgusting pedophile and he needs to be locked up in prison with his slimy friends together for all those terrible, disgusting crimes that they committed against you. As for your enabler of a mother, I am just as disgusted by her reactions toward that beast raping you; in fact, I really hate women who choose men over their own children because children should always come first. I really hope that you are in a safe place now, other than just your dad's house, and that you will someday try counselling.

Im going to tell you this one thing. Take it to JESUS. He will answer prayer. He conforted me when i was abused and now im doing much better. When no one else understands your situation God always is there to listen and understand I believe God will heal you and your children. Im not trying to push my religion on you. Im just saying try him and if you feel that he is not answering you or that you haven't seen any results let me know. Im praying for you and your children. But all you can do is be there for them like your father was there for you. Also try to share your story with your children and let them know that it is ok tell you and that you won't get mad and that you love them no matter what. It will work out I promise I hope you don't take anything I say to heart. I wish nothing but the best for you and your children and God Bless.

You are a very strong woman! I'm sorry for all that has happened to you and your children. Keep being there for your children, you acted quickly to protect your children. You are indeed an amazing mother!


?For I will restore health to you and heal you of your wounds,? says the Lord. (Jeremiah 30:17)

(Psalms 147:3 NKJV) He heals the brokenhearted And binds up their wounds

Ephesians 3:17-19
Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God?s love and keep you strong. And may you have the power to understand, as all God?s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God. (NLT)

Stay Strong
by: Freddie Evans

my advice is to keep your head up and god never said life will be easy .The world is made up of strong minded people and the weak minded, the strong minded who sadly has to go through it builds from it and they have there guard up but not to high that it stops you from living.The more you sit and think bout what happened the more you'll get depressed and feel like giving up but giving up isn't an option because thats the stupid but easy way. Don't let the experience be an excuse to give up but as a excuse to be motivated to protect your kids and other women and other children to save them from ever experiencing that incident and your kids might not want to tell therapist because they just want to forget it and when they talk about it then it kills them inside being reminded that it was there own father who would hurt them the most but there will be a time when they open up you just cant rush them but be there for them.Stay strong and keep your head up...

I know it's tough
by: Anonymous

The fact is, you tried to protect them. You immediatly sought help for your children and got this horrible man out of their lives. I have a great deal of respect for you because of that. That is something my mother never did for me. I know it hurts you to think that you were not there for your children, but really, you were. They will love you for that. I pray all is well for you and your children.
