Inspirational!

Your mother did exactly what she needed to do in order to both keep you safe and get you the help you needed. I commend her, I commend Linda your "angel", and you too, Tara. You've shown how resilient you really are. Keep up the great work!

Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

Your mother was a saviour
by: Francine

Tara, All I can say is that your mother is really a hero! That pervert named Bob...should've been in jail for the rest of his miserable perverted life. I wish you, your boyfriend, your friends and even your mother all the best.

I commend you on your journey to healing. I too have been the victim of child sexual abuse. The thing about mine though is that I still to this day, at the age of 36, are still trying to find a way of coping with this tragedy in my life. I have found that it consumes most of my thoughts and has shaped the way I view things and people. My relationships with the opposite sex have in the past been very troubling as well. I find that I question my worth to others. I am glad that you are finding a way of getting past what happened to you. I hope that I can someday come to be able to accept and get past the torture in my life that I go through on a daily basis with no one to talk to and no one that really understands. I hope that you continue to progress on your road to healing and recovery. God Bless You!!!
