You have much to be proud of...
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

Thank you, Shannon, for sharing more of your story with my visitors and me. And it wasn't just by the grace of God that you didn't abuse your girls; it was by your OWN grace. Grace at knowing what was and wasn't right. Something your mother never understood.

P.S. I was unable to use the image you included, Shannon, because of the Copyright on it.

Such Cruelty
by: Anonymous

Shannon, a mother that is as sick and sadistic as yours had been to you really shouldn't have children in the first place if she is incapable of loving them, nurturing them and even protecting them from harm. I'm sorry that you were forced to endure her cruelty. I can relate to you running away, I ran away a lot, too, and I always get caught and...well, you know the rest. I hope you're in counselling because you are worth the help that you really deserve. I wish you and your children all the best. God bless!

I wouldn't call her mother
by: Anonymous

Some people should never have kids. Your Mom was one of them. Don't let her be in your kids lives. Protect them. Your Mom needs to get help. You are a very brave person. Don't let her rule your life. You did nothing wrong. Just live your life and make a great life for you and the girls. YOU MOTHER DOES NOT HAVE TO BE A PART OF IT.

Scared
by: Shannon5

Im actually dredding this holiday only because I know that at some point my "mother" is going to call my house for the girls, and play all nice nice like theres nothing wrong and her and I are all good... when all I want to do is scream DONT CALL HERE! I hate the fact that she can pretend like theres nothing wrong, knowing she's evil! knowing that I know she's evil, and knowing that she actually talks to my Ex husband who is exactly like her, knowing I've been threw hell and back with him, and now she's playing nice with him just to get to me, just to hurt me more... all her life has been about hurting me... my birth hurt her, my childhood, hurt her, my teens hurt her, everything I've done has somehow someway hurt her, so she's got to get back at me... I just really hate all this fakeness it drives me wild, cause inside Im screaming what I want to and need to say to her, but none of that would serve any purpose because she has done no wrong. I dont know... xmas is very special to me because I can make them wonderful for my girls, cause I make each one a memory that they will always remember, and my memory of xmas, birthdays, anything special was just aweful, I have no good memories from childhood, I hate her.
Looks like back to theropy after xmas again. when will she just leave me and my girls alone.
