First and foremost, I am SO proud of you for understanding that HE did this to your family, that you didn't do this to them. That's half the battle, realizing this was not your fault. ALL fault lies squarely on HIS shoulders because he chose to offend. He's likely been offending for a very long time. I'm also SO proud of you and your sister for telling. Only through telling did the abuse stop. Be proud of yourself for speaking out. Doing so opened the door for your sister to also speak out; and that in turn opened the door for healing for both of you. Bravo to you, Tamara, bravo to you. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

VERY BRAVE
by: Anonymous

Tamara what you did was very brave! And it was completely the right thing to do! Nobody has a right to abuse others. And nobody has a right to breech the trust that naturally forms among relatives (even when they arent blood relatives as such they are STILL relatives). Adults should NEVER EVER do these things to children. All adults! Its not allowed, its not permitted, it simply isnt DONE! And if they feel entitled to do such a vile thing, then we need to stop them. You did an incredibly strong and beautiful thing. You helped yourself, your sister and your family. You stopped the abuse!!! We are all proud of you for speaking up!!!!
