Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me. You haven't been "irresponsible". Your molester is completely responsible. I urge you to contact 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. And you need to report this man. You can visit their website by copying & pasting the following URL into your browser:

I must also tell you that you are not protecting your sister by staying silent. The way to protect her and yourself is to tell someone. He's a coward, and he's threatening your family the way cowards do. TELL SOMEONE! He won't stop until you do.

And Nicole, please do not put your email into either submissions or comments. That is STRICTLY prohibited on this site due to safety concerns for all my visitors. All correspondence must be done through the comments form attached to this story page. I thank you for your understanding.

your sister might hold the key
by: Scott Canada

Hi Nicole. I cant help but think that this man may have already abused your sister. Two against one is better than you standing up against him all by yourself. Your mom might actually listen to the two of you.
I would talk to my sister in private and see what she has to say and work together.
Stay strong.

I agree
by: Anonymous

I agree with Scott you need to tell your mom before he hurts your sister or at least find out if he already has by talking to your sister. I also think your mom would take everything back if she knew the truth about your dad.

a vicious beater for a stepfather
by: Anonymous

Nicole, I am sorry that you didn't have a good family. I am disgusted by the fact that your mother refuses to protect you or your sister from that slimy brute of a stepfather. Please tell someone who will listen to you and help you. I wish you and your sister all the best.

Who's hurting the most fro your abuse???
by: maurice

Nicole D. Ask yourself that question. Be totally honest with the answer you give yourself. By not telling someone you will grow up hurting more and more inside yourself. Stop hurting yourself NOW. Your Mam will find out who the father of your baby is have no doubt about that. She is your MOTHER. Not a great one admittingly but she is. You were a brave girl to search and find Darlene's site. That Nicole D means you are looking for help. Darlene certainly knows that especially in the comment she made to you. Take her words to your heart as they are from her heartfelt words to you. She knows best, you can trust her completely. Nicole D scott and anonymous and now me want only what is the best for you NOW not in few years time. Take action and do what Dalene encourages you to do for the sake of your SISTER. If that animal of a man has threeatened you he would do the same to your sister as he has done to you. He wil wheteher or which. Safeguard her and yourself from that monster. Your mother ain't a fool she has intelligence, I only hope she is not fooling you into thinking she does not know who the father of your baby is. covering up to safeguard him/herself. Please be strong, go for help, don't be afraid. Yes HE has put fear into you but you are strong and you will overcome that fear. Don't be hurting anymore. You owe it to your baby sister because you trully love her and you really want to protect her from that beast. You are the most important one now to help. then automatically you will be helping your sister. I want you to be safe. I bet you want to be safe and far away from that beast of a man. Maybe getting a safe place if and when your mother carries out her threat about kicking you out of the house will be the beginning of your learning and healing from the abuse you endured. REMEMBER IT WAS NOT YOUR FAULT: DON'T BLAME YOURSELF NICOLE D. Always believe in yourself.
