Nothing that happened was your fault...
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

You're very strong, Taylah. I'm delighted that you now have the nurturing and support of a loving foster family. Stay strong and stay in counselling. And I do hope both your parents are in prison; that is the only place they deserve to be.

You're still you
by: Andrew

What your parents did to you is unforgivable and abhorrent there's no other way to describe it. I have no doubt that the scars and wounds will be deep and long lasting.

There's one thing that I'd hope that you can take away from this right now though- you're a survivor. They couldn't break you and they couldn't destroy your spirit. You saved yourself from an inhumane situation. You should be really really proud of that- not many 11 year olds would have been as courageous as you were.

Also this might seem like a funny thing to say, but it's something you need to hear- you're still a virgin! Yes I read everything you said and I know what was forced on you, but ultimately you've never chosen to give yourself to anyone and so that first time is still there, and when the time comes with the right guy, he'll know it and value and cherish it every bit as much as if none of that had ever happened to you and probably moreso because of how big he'll know that step will have been for you.

They scratched the surface sure, but they never got what's inside. You're wounded goods like the rest of us sure, but wounds heal over time and with love. And nothing your scumbag parents ever did will take away the amazing, beautiful and courageous person you are.

Sick and twisted
by: Francine

Taylah, what your so-called father, the demented pervert, did to you is extremely unforgivable. Well, that seems like he must've brainwashed your mother as well. You did not deserve to be raped; you did not deserve to be molested, you did not deserve for him to (seemingly) brainwash your mom into helping him rape you (she should've been there for you); you did NOT deserve to be sold for sex! I'm so glad that you told the police on your so-called parents...but your parents should've been thrown to jail for the rest of their miserable lives. I am also so glad that you tried counselling. However, I am extremely glad that your foster family is with you now cuz they are so sweet for doing that.
