Your godfather was "grooming" you and your mother. All the gifts to you, the fact that he showed you so much attention played on your vulnerabilities, and sent a message to your mother that he was trustworthy. Nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, he is likely still abusing little girls. Child molesters don't change their ways until they are made to stop. You need to tell someone about this, if you haven't already. Please consider contacting Child Help at 1-800-4-A-CHILD (1-800-422-4453) in order to talk to someone. They are staffed 24/7 with professionally trained counsellors who will listen to you. They are not a reporting agency, although they can help you through the process of reporting if you decide to disclose the abuse. You can visit their website by copying & pasting the following URL into your browser: http://www.childhelp.org/get_help

Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.
