Although I understand you wanting to see your siblings, what they need most is someone to step up and do what needs to be done in order for them to be safe. Please report what this woman is doing and what she did to you. If someone doesn't tell, nothing will change; yous siblings will be in greater and greater danger, especially your one little brother. I'm going to say something here that I don't normally say to my visitors. And the reason I'm going to say it is from personal experience: The guilt of leaving them behind will eat away at you. You see, Lexxie, I ran away from home as a teenager, and left my siblings in the abusive environment I ran away from. Part of what I had to deal with in my healing and recovery was that I had abandoned my siblings every bit as much as my parents had abandoned us. The guilt and shame was unbearable. I had protected my siblings as best I could when I was younger, but I left them to deal with the horrors without protection when I ran away for good the last time. I did come to understand that I did what I had to do, but I'm pointing this out because I know the guilt you're going through right now. There was little available for me to turn to when I was a teen. There were no organizations out there helping kids in abusive homes. There are a lot more in place today, but you must reach out to them. Please, for the sake of you and your siblings, contact Child Help at 1-800-4-A-CHILD (1-800-422-4453) in order to talk to someone about what you endured and what you know your siblings are enduring. They are staffed 24/7 with professionally trained counsellors who will listen to you. Visit their website by copying & pasting the following URL into your browser: http://www.childhelp.org/get_help

You're a good sister, Lexxie, and you've done what you had to do. You can do so much more by disclosing what you know, both for your sake and the sake of your siblings. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

If you want to see and help your family from being torn apart by a stranger, call Child Protective Services and request they investigate the conditions at your mother's home. In Texas, you can not be held liable for reporting child abuse or neglect. If anyone were to threaten you, they go to jail.

Your mother choosing a same-sex partner probably placed all you kids in a competition with the new partner. She wants mom all to herself and you guys are in the way. Shame on your mom and her new partner. You kids don't deserve to be treated that way.

So, maybe if a bigger authority steps in and makes the two of them accountable, they may learn the lesson of a lifetime. You kids will benefit by being taken out of harms way by removing the partner.

Anyone who has a name like Lexxie has to be darn good at sports. You get right back in there and do what you do best. We are all backing you Lexxie.

The Horror

Lexxie, I can't believe that your mom would abandon you to the so-called care of that sick monster of a woman and allow her to beat and berate you and your siblings everyday...how dare she! That sick woman is wrong...no one is ever better off without you; I'm sure that there's a lot of caring people out there. You are not a good for nothing; you are a good, beautiful person. You are not worthless; you are worthy of love, dignity and respect. If she didn't want to be there, she should've had the courage to leave instead of abusing you. The path that she and your mom chose is inexcusable. Oh, and you are not to blame for her [your mom's so-called girlfriend's] nearly-sadistic, ignorant behavior; she is to blame because she chose to abuse you. You were the child; she was the adult; she had all the power and she 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.
