You are definitely a survivor
by: Darlene Barriere

You were betrayed by everyone along the way, Tabitha. The system was heartless, and they failed you on so so many levels. But your birth mother failed you too. You said she told you that she knew your father was molesting you from the time you were 6 months old, yet she didn't remove you from his care until you were 3! My god . . . she enabled him to sexually assault you.


Both your parents should be held accountable for the abuse you suffered. You deserved to have loving, nurturing, caring parents; parents who protected you from harm; parents who made sure that all your needs were being met. And when your parents didn't give you what you had a birthright to, the system should have kicked in to take over, rather than kick you even more. Yes, Tabitha, you are definitely a survivor of abuse.

I Feel You
by: Francine

Your story is shocking! Having the government betray you instead of saving you from your dad and your stepmom does NOT seem like fun to me! I'm glad that you ran away from your dad. I'll pray for you all night, baby (and those who are next). Peace.

god be with you now..

Your story is so horrible I cried uncontrollably. I'm so sorry for you and so many other children who have gone through and continue to suffer in the hands of the people that are suppose to protect them and love them. Please please please don't ever blame yourself. You were only a child and that man that did this to you was not your father. He was a monster and I pray he dies painful death. When he suffers, if he already isn't dead - please don't see him.

God bless you and continue to be strong.

I wish you the best.
by: Anonymous

I don't know what to say. I wish so much that I could say or do something to help you. I can't believe the rage I feel just for reading what that Satan incarnate did to you. I know that my being sorry for what happened doesn't help, but I want you to know that I think you deserve to have the best life possible. It's just not fair. People that do things like that to children should have everything taken away from them. And even that wouldn't be enough to atone for what you went through. I am so sorry.

So Sorry
by: Anonymous

I feel for you Tabitha, My daughter is also named Tabitha and she was abuse by her stepfather. I feel shamfull on my behalf as a parent. i tell myself i am the worst mother in the world to have this happen under plain sight to me. My baby deals with this in her own way , most of the time she shuts me out but always tells me she loves me and that i am a great mom.
I did not charge my ex husband due to my guilt and fear of wat people would say about my children and my parenting skills. we live with this everyday. but some peace comes to us as he is alone drugged f***ed and far from being loved by anyone,and soon will die. but i hate seeing the pain in my youngest daughters eyes everyday as she misses her father.
I am proud of you and how far you have come. One day i hope my girl will overcome this and live a life full of happiness and love .
