I commend you for your strength . . .
by: Darlene Barriere - webmaster

You didn't deserve to be yelled at, Wendy. You didn't deserve to be called names. You didn't deserve to be beaten. And you certainly didn't deserve to be disowned by your self-centered father. When your father renounced you, what he really said was: "I'm so wrapped up in myself and my own needs that I can't see the harm I've done to you. I'm more important." That's his problem, Wendy, not yours. Don't for one second take on that guilt, because it's not yours to bear. His self-centeredness is his responsibility. Yours is to work on yourself. You have to stay strong. You have to continue to do what's best for you; and if that means detaching from your family, then so be it.

The struggles you face can get easier, but you can't do it alone. You need a support system. And if at all possible, I strongly urge you to get some form of counselling, if not now, at some point in the near future. Try to take advantage of all resources available to you. Don't be afraid to talk to a counsellor at school; he or she may have a list of available resources you can tap into.

And do pat yourself on the back for having the wherewithal to continue with your education, Wendy, in spite of all the struggles you are facing. This really does show your strength of character and determination. I applaud you for showing such resiliency and self-esteem. I am definitely rooting for you.

Thank you - hearing someone say that to me is just an extra boost that I always need every day. To the last comment made, my sister still lives with them, but they have a live-in counseller helping my biological parents learn to take care of her. (This is what I think was their last choice before they lost her to the government)

Just as an update, I currently live with my foster parents which I do believe God sent them to me to take care of me and teach me right.
