A number to call...
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

Katie, I'm sorry to learn you are dealing with abuse at the hands of your parents, and that Social Services seems indifferent to your plight.

I must be honest here: This isn't a place that can get you what you are looking for. I can't offer a way for you to circumvent the system that is in place. I suggest you contact Child Help at 1-800-4-A-CHILD (1-800-422-4453) in order to talk to someone about the abuse you are dealing with. They are staffed 24/7 with professionally trained counsellors who will listen to you. Perhaps they can provide some options. Just don't expect that they'll be able to arrange for your boyfriend's parents to get custody of you. That may not be possible. So please, phone them with an open mind. They may be able to offer you advise that you hadn't considered.

Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me. I wish you and your unborn baby all the best, dear.

I'm going through some sort of the same thing....
by: Brittany

so i know how your feeling. I am so sorry about what is going on. And I know that the last thing you want to here is someone saying sorry. When someone says that to me I get angry. I know they can't do anything to help me so why be sorry. I have just turned 15. And I just wanted you to know I hope that social services believes you before its to late.

Enabler for a social worker and the vicious beaters for parents
by: Francine

Katie, I went through the same thing, too. Even my stupid spineless doormat so-called social worker named L.C. just sat on the loveseat whenever she came to my house and said the same thing to me, too. Those chickens for so-called social workers need a reality check, too. Well, try telling the police, not just your boyfriend and his parents. No one deserves to live like this.

I Wish I Could Help!
by: Anonymous

I am speaking to you Katie as a child abuse worker. I am very sorry for what you are going through. All social workers are not like this. You need to get a trusted adult to take pictures of any and all bruises that you have any time you have them. If the social worker will not listen call their supervisor and director. If you still can not get any help call your social service agencies state office and describe the abuse you have endured and that they have not listened to you. You need to allow your boyfriend's parents to hold on to any and all pictures of your bruises and have them to document all incidents. God Bless You and Keep you and your baby. If you have any more questions please post I check this site regularly and will try and help as much as I can.
