The shame is NOT for you to bear...
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

I hope you are not still ashamed to have been adopted, Loren. Your brother's behaviour toward you was hateful, shameful and disrespectful. He is troubled beyond words. He didn't deserve to have you as a sister, and you MOST CERTAINLY did not deserve to have such a vile person as a brother! Where the devil were your adoptive parents when all this was going on? They should have known it was going on and they should have put an end to it. It was your birthright to be protected and loved and nurtured.

You've had to endure a lifetime of every kind of abuse: emotional, physical, sexual and child neglect. It is nothing short of miraculous that you survived any of it, let alone ALL of it.

I'm delighted that you have found someone in your life that is supportive and loving. I believe you need to be just as supportive and loving of yourself, Loren. I strongly urge you to enter into some form of counselling to help you deal with all that happened to you, to help you deal with the emotional trauma of having EVERYONE in your life betray and abandon you. You are so worth that help.

And Loren, I have a policy that does not permit the posting of personal photos along with story submissions, which is why I didn't include the lovely, smiling photo you included. You truly are a beautiful young woman with an AMAZING smile! To the rest of my visitors: You'll just have to take my word for it.

Keep smiling, Loren. You have so much to offer.

touched by your story
by: Anonymous

Dear Loren,

Your story really touched me. It's similar to mine in some ways.

I'm sorry that you were placed in the hands of such uncaring people as a child.

You deserved so much more.

I hope that you can overcome the pain be happy. I hope the person that you love treats you well.

Jocelyn
