Kathryn:
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

If I understand you correctly, you are still with your rapist, and you have 2 sons as a result of being raped. If this is the case, you haven't had 2 sons "together". The word "together" implies consent. You couldn't consent if you were a child. You say you'll leave in Feb 2012 when you can buy a car...but when Feb comes around, there will likely be another reason not to leave. The longer you wait to get out, the more you put your sons at risk. This isn't just about you anymore, Kathryn, this is about your precious sons. Please contact the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-SAFE (7233). They have advocates available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week who can provide crisis intervention, escape planning, information and referrals to victims or anyone calling on their behalf. Visit their website by copying & pasting the following URL into your browser: http://www.ndvh.org/

You are worthy of dignity and respect. Find that dignity and respect within yourself, and reach out for the help you and your sons need. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

The Horror
by: Anonymous

Kathryn, you were given a raw, crappy deal and I am sorry to hear about your nearly sadistic mom and your psycho stepdad because they are so twisted that they don't even know how to take care of themselves, not to mention be parents to you. Something's seriously wrong with their sick minds. Mothers who abuse their own daughters are one of the real abusers and so are stepdads who abuse their stepchildren. Oh, and if they didn't want to take care of you, then they should've had the courage to let your grandma take you in instead of sadistically abusing you. The path that they chose is inexcusable. Oh, and I am disgusted by the the idea that she chose to join him in beating, offending and berating you as well as the fact that she refuses to leave him; I hate women who choose men over their own children because children should always come first. Oh, and you are not to blame for their sadistic, messed up 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 it over you, so please tell someone you really trust and keep telling until he/she will finally listen to you and help you.
