Such lies...
by: Francine

Lilly, your father is wrong. You don't deserve what he did to you; you are not worthless, you are lucky enough to have been born; whatever he did to you will never ever be your fault. Those lies that he drilled into you are STILL LIES. You might need to get therapy. Tell someone, too, before it's too late. Don't wait too long.

:/
by: Aimee (:

Reading this really touched me.
I'm studying child abuse in school, and I myself have been abused.
I choose to speak up about what happened to me.
I did not in any way get sexually abused.
But to hear that someone like you did is horrible.
What your Dad done to you was out of order.
If I had my way he's be in prison.
No matter how much you love your Dad, if you do.
He deserves every bad thing coming to him.
I'm at a young age, I'm 16.
And at the moment I'm in school writing about this.
Speak up about it, if you'd like to contact anyone and speak about what you've been through.
You can always comment back.
You really didn't deserve all that, you honestly didn't.
You're not worthless, not one bit.
I used to think the same.
Now that I've moved in with my Dad things have got a lot better.
I was physically abuse by my own Mother and Grandfather.

Much Love (:

Andrea, due to a system glitch, your comment to Lilly was lost. If you'd care to re-post your comment, I'll be happy to approve it so that Lilly can read it. My sincere apologies for the inconvenience.

Sorry
by: Erin

im sorry that happened to you

Note from Darlene Erin, I know you want to help Lilly, and I applaud that; but including your phone number is against the rules on this site. You do not know who is reading these pages, and since I have no control over who does read these pages, email addresses and phone numbers and any other personal information that could lead to a pedophile finding one of my young (and yes, even not-so-young) visitors is strictly prohibited. I trust you understand my position on this. Your safety and the safety of all my visitors is too important for me to waver on this issue.

Keep reaching out for help
by: Kathie

Lilly,

I know all the advice to reach out and tell someone is a struggle and you may not be successful on your first attempt since the system is not perfect, my advice is to continue to report, the more reports - the better chance you have of rescue. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Be part of the solution and don't let parental threats scare you, there is always someone that will want and respect you. God bless baby and keep us updated.
