Birthday greetings...
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

We're the same age, No Name...at least we will be sometime this month. Thank you for sharing your story here. All too often we hear horror stories about foster families; it is so heartwarming to read about a truly wonderful one. They were probably instrumental in helping you overcome the terrible adversity you faced, and as such, you ensured the cycle of abuse was broken. Congratulations on that front! You have much to be proud of.

An early "Happy Birthday" to you, No Name. I hope you love your fifties as much as I do.

Thanks for the birthday wish,,,you too. I've just wanna you to know I have read all the abuse stories on your site, and wanna to inform you My heart went out to all of them. I never knew there was so many and so much worse then mine...and I thought my mine was bad...God bless them all and keeping it together as hard as it is. Every stories I read my thoughts came back to a question each time...Why did they get return to those so call grown-ups after being taken away...knowing how they are...all the stories I went through helped alot...knowing I was not the only one...either if It did feel like it. I'm good...I know it will never go away, but we are strong and We will make it...we were made strong through the abuse...and we are still here without our so call parents. We live through HELL...they may throught they broke us...but we don't stay down...Well...good luck to all and may Our "parents " burn in Hell...I Know my will. Believe me I'm not really bitter...its something my brothers and I say to each other...what I hear HE isn't doing to good. THATS TO BAD. I feel for him....yea right. Anyway thanks for listening.

I'm so glad you were able to find some solace in reading the stories of others. I understand how it can be comforting to know that you are not alone; and you really aren't, No Name...No Name is so impersonal...I'll just call you dear, even if we are the same age.

Thank you for taking the time to write with an update. Take care of yourself the way no one ever has, dear. You are most definitely worth it.

I like this site...it reminds me how strong we are...how we fight to stay in this world with all the stuff we went through as children...sometimes we get down...but it nice to know we are not alone and there is otheers who are fighting to be have a normal...whatever that is...when I read the stories I see how strong we are...how we fight to stop ourselves being like the monsters...we have are down moments...I do...but the stories help me to see I'm not alone....like I said before I would have never guess at this time with all the help out there it is still so BAD and going on...When I get down (I think its normal)sometimes it help to remember. There is others like me, then I pray for them and I was being selfish pitying myself who are still out there that needs help.
One day maybe there will be an end to this...but not in my life time I guess...all we can do is give our support to them and hope they get help....they are not alone...there is help. You don't have to answer this...like your site...theres a reason for everything we just don't know what...in time I guess we will. God bless and good luck!
