Boys are at risk too...
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

Lighthouse, your foster parents were more parents to you than your adoptive ones. It's obvious that your adoptive "father" had his own agenda for adopting a daughter.

I must also point out that boys are at risk for sexual abuse just as are girls. With boys, there's so much stigma attached though, that they keep it to themselves even more so than girls. If it were me, I wouldn't let those pedophiles near my family. They sexually molested you, Lighthouse; they are very likely STILL molesting.

Lighthouse, thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

child abuse hater
by: child abuse hater

firstly im glad to hear ur having a good life now i cant imagein wat it was like for u as a child, makes me sick to know there are people who like to hurt children, i would never wish abuse on anyone.

hope that u and ur children have a good life and just remember no matter wat happened in ur childhood there are people out there who care for u.

im of a young-ish age but i still strongly believe you are a good mother and u will teach your kids the right things and not aloy the bad memories to stop u, and i strongly hope all child abusers out there get wat they deserve and to me the only thing they deserve is death.

i am teribly sorry..i was adopted at 2 and it went on til i was 6 or 7.. so i know how you feel, my dad is a preacher tho, so of course i was just lying- is what they thought..no matter how hard you try, YOU WILL NEVER FORGET. i am now 23, i have 3 wonderful boys, and tho my husband would love to have a daughter, i just cant..i wont...and i cut all ties with my family in dec. 08....yes it is hard cause i am hardly close to my birth family....i have nobody, but taking that step forward to help my self, whether they believe me or not, it gave me somewhat of closure..i realize that mentally i need to be healthy to take care of and love my family the way that they need me, and always thinking of my childhood, just brought me down sooo far, but now i know that they only family i need, are the ones that need me, and my husband and boys are my life adn strength....

R-A-G-E!

I hope you all realize that when we non-abused people read these stories, the rage and fury we feel for your abusers is completely off-the-charts. I'll stay legal and keep my comments to only that. I'm so sorry this happened to you. You are all completely AMAZING people for living through what you did and telling your story. Thank you.
