So many crimes committed...
by: Anonymous

Tawnya, I'm sorry for what you were forced to go through. i can relate; my family abused me, too, and no one would ever help me at all. I'm so glad that your so-called mom is in prison now because you did not deserve to be mistreated in any way. I really hope that you're in a safe place now and that you tried counselling. I wish you and (hopefully your adoptive family) all the best. Be brave, Tawnya, and stay strong.

well....
by: christina

its wonderful that you had the strength to pull urself thus far...i am 23, and at times, i ball up on the couch and i still feel so helpless at 2 yrs old all over again...if i were to see you, id hold you, hug you and let you know that no matter what you did, none of what they did is you fault, God has blessed you by bringing you thru it all, and tho i hate it and i wonder why God could allow children to go thru what they do, its cuz of stories like urs....u have encouraged my day, and you are precious.....

Always believe in yourself, Be brave, stay strong

Tawnya, we'll never know why you were treated so badly by your mother who was an out and out sicko in her drug taking and her abuse of you. Nothing could excuse the way she treated you. she used you against your brothers and sisters. Why again does a mother particularly treat one child ever so differently that the others whom she has birthed equally. It will remain a mystery to me for the rest of my life. Tawnya you have overcome good on you, like Darlene I too hope you are in a safe place getting on with living your life to the full. Always believe in yourself. Darlene and all her visitors who make comments are fully behind you and really want what is the best for you from now on. Your education will help you so keep it up Tawnya. Hi if you get the chance talk and keep talking to a counsellor. God Bless You Tawnya. God created you wonderful and beautiful. It was not your fault that your beautifulness was abused, So don't blame yourself. Hi begin to really love yourself, respect yourself, value yourself, you are now the most important 15 years old ever birthed. You were born beautiful and again it was not your fault you were born into the situation you found yourself in. Tawnya, live well, laugh alot, love much, Look in that mirror and admire that wonderful and beautiful me in it. Say all the positive adjectives like, I am beautiful, I love who I see in the mirror. especially the parts of me that were abused. Soothe away the lasting memories of what she did to you. erase them from your mind. Let go of them. Hi Tawnya I honestly hope you find on very special person in your life called friend. One that you can trust with your life. above and outside of boy/girl elationships. She/he will be a jewel in your life. we all need a nugget of gold in our lives called friend. I can, I will, I must.
