Maria:
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

What a wonderful woman you confided in! She knew she couldn't keep that secret; and no one should EVER keep such a secret. It's not betrayal when they don't keep it. It's not a broken promise. It's a compassionate act done from a place of love. And I'm SO glad that your mother stepped up to the plate and got you the help you needed. There are a lot of things you don't know about what your mother lived through that could explain so much about the way she is; but she most definitely knew what you needed in your time of desperate need. These two women acted out of love, and for that I'm so grateful. Keep your head up, Maria. You are strong and have the support of people around you. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

Maria is wonderful woman. She defies odds by surviving child abuse. This is clear message to all child abuse victims; they can also change and forget what happened to them just like Maria. They can start new life.

Irish survivors

Thank you for sharing your story. I'm so sorry u lost ur precious baby so far into ur pregnancy. I was the same that I didn't realise I'd been abused until a sex education class in school so I know that awful feeling of sitting in a classroom feeling shocked embarrassed ashamed and alone and everyone else just sitting looking normal around u. Ur so lucky ur mum has been so supportive. Mine didn't help or really want to know and it still sits like a big pink elephant between us. Sometimes it doesn't bother me other tines it gets me down. Take care my fellow Irish sister xo
