I see you as very courageous. You not only stood up to that monster that day, you stood up for yourself in the way that you had to. As a result, you've been able to stand up for yourself ever since. I understand the need for separation from your "parents". Sometimes that's necessary. As for your father, how could he not know what that monster was doing. Any parent who would use a stove to burn a helpless child as so-called discipline is a coward, and I wouldn't put anything past such a pitiful excuse for a human being. I do hope you can enter into some form of counselling in order to help you deal with the repercussions of such a vile childhood. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

You are truly a survivor
by: Karen W

Richard, I am so glad you stood up for you and your sister. You are on your way to taking control again. You are speaking out. I am alot like you. I have a wonderful husband and three great boys of my own and could NEVER dream of hurting them. I learned as well how i did NOT want my kids raised. You have turned your tragedy into someone else's hope. Your father was obviously abusive as well if he placed your little hands on a stove burner because you spilled some vitamins. I don't think it would have mattered if you would have told him about step-mom. My step-mother was a physical abuser as well. I was fortunate enough to have secluded her out of my life but unfortunate to not have been able to confront her before she died. Protect your children and love your wife. You survived a tragic event no child should have to go through.

The Brave, The Good, prove there is life after abuse.
by: maurice

Oh Richard as I sat here reading your very detailed abuse story. Your Mother was just something else, she was not even human in the way shetreated you. A monster with anilal rather than human insticts. You were brave at sixteen to call a halt to it all for your own sake and that of your siblings especially your sister. Richard, Darlene has given you encourageing words to live your life to the full NOW with your loving wife and your three beautiful girls. LOVE: LOVE; value each other. grow together in love and respect always acknowledgeing we are family together. all that matters now in your life. There is life after abuse Richard and you have proved it. Thank you. Always believe in yourself
