You are not to blame
by: Anonymous

Kathy, what happened to you is never your fault; in fact, your whole family is really to blame because they should've loved and cherished you. Your aunt is to blame too because she actually betrayed you for telling her on your so-called uncle; in fact, she should've protected you from his perversion. I can relate; my mom hurt me while my dad, alongside my maternal grandmother (and everyone else in my life), has always betrayed me...so all I have now is this site, my grandpa and my friends (and even animals). Have you tried counselling?

We should never turn our backs on the most vunerable
by: maurice

Kathy 1, Your the best, you're a special and unique woman. ever so strong and brave. You sure give HOPE to anyone reading the very real and true stories of their abuse on Darlene's site. She sure deserves the greatest of praise and blessings for setting it up. It is one large stepping stone for all who relate their abuse life to. You certainly are telling each of us there is life after all kinds of abuse. You certainly were not to blame for all that was done to you by very cruel and thoughtless human beings especially by your family MOTHER/FATHER who should have loved and cherished you. You certainly walked the hard road of recovery to make a real sense of your wonderful and beautiful self. You've made it, you are a proof of genuineness in all you done to be where you are at today. Anonymous in her very encourageing words to you certainly put the lafe after abuse in perspective. Her saving help is this site, her friends, nature and her animals. Oh how true that is. The importance of having one/two genuine friends who walk with you, hug you, love you. bear your pain/hurt with you. They sure are a jewel in the abused persons life. Thank YOU Kathy1. Thank you Darlene, Thank you Anonymous.

Still amazing to me
by: Lois Duchame

It still amazes me that families don't believe their children. It is awful how much you had to endure and for how long. maybe we need to teach our children to tell someone other than family members if they don't defend you. I know it's hard to do when just a child. My heart goes out to you. I'm sure many other hurting individuals do things we judge them harshly for. We should stop to ask ourselves if there could be a reason behind the behaviors. Unfortunately, until it happens to us or someone we care about, not a thought is given to the whys.

child abuse hater is apauled with these men
by: child abuse hater

firstly u r right by saying you r a SURVIVOR and there is HOPE for all people who have suffered from child abuse, i would not wish this abuse upon anyone.

i am sickened to know there are people out there who think it is right to sexualy abuse a lil girl and lay there hands on a person like they did to you.

i strongly believe u can put that in the past and get on with a life that is suitable for living, just remember there are people out there who do care for u and i am one ov those people child abuse hater is with u every step ov the way thru life and even tho u dont know me i will be thinking ov u and hoping u get the best from life.

child abuse hater believes all children can overcome there abuse and live a normal life that they have always wanted.

Hate seems a harsh word to use against an abuser of the innocent
by: maurice

While it is my first re-action with each abuse story I read on Darlene's site. and reading in the daily news paper of those who have abused. While they have perpetrated the cruelest evil on the innocent child/teenager/adolecent to hate them them seems unreal to me. They need to be punished and put very far away from ever doing it again. A high percent of them are genuinely remorseful and are forgiven by those they abused. A high percent certainly don't feel they have done anything wrong and seem to carry on with their life living in self denial. Thay are the one's I cannot understand, hate could be a word to discribe my sense of them. To find a way to punish them to such a degree that they feel the pain of abuse they have done to the innocent and the vunerable. I know many who have abused walking the streets who seem not to be giving a damn that they abused innocent and vunerable victims. Thank you for allowing me to share my feelings. Kathy 1 always Believe in yourself. hater of those who abuse I hope I made sense to you.
