I can feel the pain you're in just reading your story. And SO much pain is there. You've been betrayed by your mother, the system, and now the judge. You've been abandoned by your mother, the system, and yes, now the judge. Of course you're tired. And not just because you're only 16...it would make anyone tired, even at 60! I would love to be able to tell you that everything is going to be okay and point you in the direction of someone who can truly help you in your situation. The truth of it is, there is little I can do. I can give you space to be heard. I can empathize with your circumstances. I can even relate to some of it. I can also tell you that there though there may not be much you can do about your circumstances, you can always choose your response. You ARE worthy of dignity and respect and love. You ARE smart. You ARE strong...stronger than you realize. You have it inside of you to see things in a way that square up with Who You Really Are. You know you don't deserve to be abused. You know you don't deserve to be in a toxic environment. You know you that judge is off his rocker. You're a very intelligent 16-year-old. Reach out for any and all help that is out there. The world needs people like you...I would like to think that when you get through all this, you're going to turn the pain you endured into something extremely powerful. YOU, my dear Lynette, have that kind of power within you. Believe it. I sure do. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me. I send you love, light and healing energy.

i understand how you feel i went through similar things i was in foster care to but i can tell you this you can fight on not going back to your mother and i'm pretty sure foster care is better than you mothers house and the way you can fight i know in my state for foster kids they assigned attorneys to represent the children and you are old enough to make your descision you can tell your attorney or caseworker that you don't want to go back and tell them the reason why and that you will still get hurt and she has all of these men living with her the guardian a litem and your case worker would have to check the house and do a background check on anybody that is living in the home. and normally caseworkers and attorneys will fight for you so just let them know ASAP

I'm so sorry the judge won't hear you.

I can understand the feelings of betrayal and fear.
DON'T GIVE UP. Life can be downright painful, but if you can just hold on, life will be what YOU make it in a few short years.

Don't accept the abuse, keep telling. Even if you feel like a broken record. Just keep telling. Even if you think, "Oh, hear we go again..." Just keep telling.

Abuse hurts us in so many ways, ways you'll need to heal from and try to make sense of your place in this world. But here's the thing, I can HEaR the intelligence in your writing, I can FEEL that you know this is not the life you want.

I know you're only 16, and I don't know the laws where you're from. But maybe you could call the courts for a "child's advocate" to stand up for you in your case. This person acts as a 3rd party in your welfare. I don't know how you get one (courts, legal aid, CPS/DCFS) but I know they're out there & it never hurts to look.

Just hold on.

T
