by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

What an amazing young woman you are! After all you've lived through, you still have the ability to see clearly. You know what's happening in your life is so wrong, and you are taking measures to right that wrong. I don't only commend and applaud you for that; I send you the warmest virtual hug possible. You may not have the family of your dreams right now, but you have the ability to love YOURSELF no matter what, Megan. I was never in foster care, but I understand the feelings of betrayal and abandonment. I understand what it's like to be rejected to the point that I believed I was not lovable. I learned along the way that I had to love myself, and that I had to give myself what I couldn't get from others. That didn't harden my heart; it opened it up to allow love to enter into my life. You see, Megan, I too had the façade. I too tried to show that I didn't care. But I wasn't fooling anyone. When I began to love myself, my life began to change for the better, then the best. At nearly 52 years of age, I still have the most wonderful people in my life. You can have that too, but it must first start with you. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

The Heart of a woman who cares:
by: maurice

Megan O. Great you are evr so strong within yourself to want to live a full life and prove there is a life to be lived after abuse. You are an inspirtaion to all TEENAGERS/CHILDREN of abuse. With your own self determination you will get on well in LIFE. Has'nt Darlene a huge heart for you in her comment. Megan O you'll make real sense of her loving, supporting, encourageing words and live them in your life. You are brave, you are strong, you'll be a winner. But Hi, you'll have to work at it with the help now of your loving foster family. I am a big girl now, I know what is the best for me, Build up your Self-Esteem. Get to know and love the real you within. There's loads of self confidence building up inside allow that beautiful child to grow. Megan O reading your story after journeying with hundreds of teenagers for years I saw you blossoming. Choose a flower that you would like to be. The ferocious abuse you had to endure are years of the side of your flower. I choose to be a SUN FLOWER many years ago. with my abuse years I slowly made a sense of them and pushed them back one by one and now I blossom where I am at in my life NOW. It worked for me and I am certain reading through your story it will work for you too. Have a healthy mind in a healthy body. get out their with your friends/class mates and get involved with team sports and cultural activities. Be Active, Be Alive, expressing the gifted and tallented you to all around you. I CAN: I WILL: I MUST: WHY??? SIMPLY MEGAN O BECAUSE I AM WORTH IT. Think positive, act positive, be positive in all you do and say. Look in the mirror while you do that all the time. See that wonderful and beautiful ME looking out at you. Be gentle and kind to that BODY that was so brutally molested and abused. massage, rub, all those scented cream and lotions of love into it. erasing the bad memories of the parts that were scarred and bruised. I'M SPECIAL. I LOVE ME.
