No statute of limitations in Canada
by: Darlene Barriere

Maggie, there is no statute of limitations in Canada for child abuse, as long as the abuse took place in Canada. Although historical abuse can be difficult to prove, you might want to consider filing a statement with the local authorities. Your father and his "friends" should be in prison for what they did to you.

I hope you are getting some form of counselling for the abuse you suffered and for the emotional pain and trauma that you continue to suffer with. You're worth it, Maggie. And so is your child. For the sake of your child, I sincerely hope you are no longer cutting yourself.

I am horrified.
by: Anonymous

Each time I read stories about sexual abuse, or any other kind of abuse, it gives me chills to think that someone so sick, and cold would do something like that. I am really glad you were brave, and moved on with your life, starting a new one, far away from the bad memories. Your a really brave person.

I'm sorry
by: Anonymous

I'm sorry to have read your story to see that you went through the same thing i did with my dad and his friends. My dad would also come into my room late at night when my mother was either asleep or working late at night and he would do what your dad did to you. My dad used to take me to 'parties' at his friends house and his friends would do the same to me.

I too also got pregnant but i kept my baby. i ran away from home at the age of 14 and 9 months later i had a beautiful little girl. I've never been back. I don't want to go back. I never ever want my little girl to experience what i did when i was growing up.

My thoughts are with you honey.

OMG!!!!
by: Francine

Maggie, I'm so sorry that happened to you! If you still need help, then you might want to either try counseling or call the police on your parents and their friends; they should be in prison forever! You deserve for them to say, "We are wrong. We are very, very wrong. We are so sorry." But I'm glad that you ran away from them and never came back because you and your child never deserved to suffer ever again! You both deserved a better life. Peace. Go bless you, Maggie.

how could someone be so sick?
by: stephanie

when i read this story, chills went down my spine. no one should ever have to go threw that, and it takes a real sick bastard to be able to do it. i feel for every single person who has ever had to experience a situation similar to this. and one day when i have children, i will be sure to treat them the way that a child should be treated, with love and respect.

oh my god!
by: Angelica

Wow! what to say about something like this...its hard to believe a parent or any human being for that matter could do this to a child. I just want to say to maggie that you are a brave woman and i feel for that little girl that hid in the corner. I was abused myself but not to that extent...i'm just glad your doing awesome and that you have a great man! l8r

by: k.p

it's quite amazing how someone so close and who is ment to love you can do somehting like that. it's a sad and cruel thing for someone like that to do a horrible thing to anyone. especially htier own child, their flesh and blood. that man or any offender in that case should never be anywhere children ever the way they treat them.

I'm so sorry
by: Anonymous

i understand the pain and hurt, but especially the not wanting to forgive. i didn't want to either in fact i wanted the guy to be dead. all that it does is hurt me though in order to be ok i had to let God help me to forgive him in order to be ok and not let him (the guy that abused me) have power over me. it works i promise

I hope you are with a man who will respect you and your children and your wihses. And will respect your boundaries. I wish you the best of luck in your life. xoxo
