Oh Lydia, great you found the courage to write on Darlene's site by doing so you are acknowledging her vision in setting it up as a medium of help to all her visitors who have been abused. From many parts of the world. I from Eire/Ireland and you from your village in West Indies. She truly is a remarkable woman. Thank you Darlene.

A Guardian Angel for a Niece
by: Anonymous

Lydia, good on your niece for standing up for you against your sister because your sister is really twisted in her own way of thinking and she really needs help...but you need help, too, other than your niece sticking up for you. Have you tried counselling? I wish you and your niece all the best.
