Hello,

I wanted to let you know that I read your book here in Maine.  I hope you've been able to obtain some peace since the time you wrote it. My heart broke for you.  I was extremely angry at those who abused you - especially those who abused you in the name of God.   As a Christian, I can tell you, those evil people did not represent true Christianity or God in what they were doing.  Evil people have always committed horrid acts in the name of God - which do not represent His nature at all.  I hope there was justice of some type for what they did.

Hi cortney and thank you for your kind words and support, it make me very happy knowing that people care about what went on and would help if they could. I know these things went on a lot in Ireland long before I was bourn and continued for many years and I hope that my life story has not upset you. I hope all is well and I wish you and your family well. thanks. Lily :)

Hi Lily,I purchased your book on amazon and couldn't put it down. My heart broke for you in so many ways. I am originally from Labrador, Canada. My Grandmother's father and his family moved there in the 1920s or 30s from Ireland, they were O'Dells. I couldn't help but wonder what their childhoods had been like after reading your book. Unfortunately he died a year before I was born and my grandmother can't remember him talking much about it. I have a daughter myself who is going to be turning 4 in November and reading your book I couldn't imagine her going through what you did at that age. You are a strong and brave woman and I pray that you can find some sort of comfort in knowing that you had the courage to tell your story and hopefully gave other the courage they needed to tell their own!

Hi Lily,

I'm in the process of reading your book and if nothing else it lets me know that my childhood that I viewed as bad really wasn't that bad at all. It's amazing that abuse of this magnitude could have happened to so many children for such a long period of time and nobody did anything to stop it. What's even more incredible is that it was done by priests and nuns who are supposed to adhere to the love and compassion Jesus taught. They are clearly very sick people.

I'm wondering, if you don't mind answering, if these nuns and other abusers are alive today and if any of them have paid for what they did? Have you received any compensation from the Catholic Church for what they did to you as some other victims of their abuse have?

When did these things happen? Have the Catholic Church or the Irish government made any attempt to help you try to heal your emotional injuries, such as providing therapy or any other help?

If you don't want to answer questions I understand. I figured that it doesn't hurt to ask though.

Thanks,

Josie

Lily,

     You sure have run the gamut of abuse, and I am truly sorry that you rarely experienced love during your childhood.  I have been abused through my life, am having a difficult time with it, but I can't imagine the pain you feel daily.  For you to feel love for others is truly miraculous in light of the lack of love you and your siblings were shown.  I wish there was something that I could do to help you.  I can understand how you could feel the way you do about life because of the unfairness you have been treated with.  I am disgusted with the Catholic church, and had no idea that they could go that far in the name of God.  How the could torture and torment, and send you to people that were doing the same is far beyond my understanding.

     I understand how money cannot take the pain away.  I would rather have had my family and their love than to have money or anything else.  There is no replacement for a mothers love.  It is unfortunate that illness resides in families and rules everything within.  It's sad that people cannot see how sick they are and so quick to point a finger outward without seeing inward.  That's the problem though, people don't care enough to look inward and see.  But also, how were they raised?  Parents some times act only how they were shown.  I wonder how your parents were treated.  Were they shown the same lack of love, and just didn't know better?  Not making excuses here, but just wondering.  I know that my father is an alcoholic, and that his father was also.  It runs in families.  I am the scapegoat in my family-unless I stay away-and the blame has left me with nothing but pain.  Especially when you did nothing to cause this.  But who am I telling?  You know how it is to be blamed for things you are not guilty of.  

     I hope that you find peace for yourself some where in this world.  There is a big reason why you survived.  If not for your husband and children, then to tell your story.  Once again I am sorry for what you have had to go through at the deceptive, ignorant, and thoughtless hands of heartless people.  I know you said therapy doesn't help, but have you tried Reiki just to feel peace.  Some times other things might help.  I hope you find some peace that makes living your life now worthwile.  I think this world needs people like you.  Thanks for this opportunity to write you.

 

 

Laurie McGregor

Dear Lily

I have started reading your book and cannot tell you how sad it makes me feel. I wish I could go back there and help you all when you were young children. What you had to go through was cruel. I hope you find peace in your life with your children, you deserve it so much. You are truly inspirational x

Lily,

As I was reading your book I wanted nothing more than to take young Lily & Simon into my own home to show them love & how children should be treated. I am so sorry for all the unwanted, unloved & mistreated children everywhere. It all just seems unfair. I canNOT imagine what goes on the minds of abusers....for that matter I don't think I want to know. I would also like to shake Tony's hand. He must truly be a special person to possess that type of unconditional love.

You are a survivor and such a strong person to have lived your life in the face of such cruelty. I will pray for you that you will feel peace. You will soon have supporters from all over the world. I hope it may help a small bit to know that all people are not as bad as the ones you have encountered in your life thus far.

Amy, Kentucky, US

Hi Brenda, I don’t know a lot about how to set the page up but I will get the information on the easiest way of doing it using the best privacy setting and a pen name so nobody will know the real you. Hope to talk soon. Wishing you well. Lily

Dear Lily, Thank you so much for your quick response:)I do not have Facebook because of privacy issues. I have a very dysfunctional family who make fun of my struggles and, therefore, I have estranged myself from them for many years now. Although my life is peaceful, I would love to communicate with like-minded people as I am lonely and would love to be able to share on a regular basis. Do you have any tips for setting up a private Facebook account? I just picked up my prescription so before I medicate myself into not needing anyone around I will post this and feedback from anyone would be much appreciated. Thanks again for your kindness Lily:)

Hi Brenda, i know how you feel and if you ever need someone to talk to please feel free to message me and i will reply as soon as i can. when i wrote my life story down i never thought it was going to help me or any other person. I just done it because it felt like the right time in my life to do so and i didnt want my baby brother to be forgotten; but it has and its made me feel like i am someone and its helped people to know they are not alone with their problems and it has brought us together to help each other get through each day and our pain. i am still not content with my life or really very happy but helping others has given me something to fight for and i will continue to do so through my book. If you have a facebook account or twitter and would like to become friends on facebook or twitter please let me know your page name and i will help you connect with my friends as we help each other each day. thanks and wishing you well. Lily



I, too, am waiting to die... When I read the first page of your book I could not believe it because I had been looking to read about someone who feels like I do. Bad childhood, not wanted, given up at 4 1/2 months old, abused by caregivers. I am not, nor have I ever been a happy person. I can put up the front and smile but to keep that kind of friendship up in person is just too exhausting for me and I have to move on. I loved your book, relate to how you feel and so glad I found your website. Please let me know of any breakthroughs you may find to help in your mood struggle as I am feeling very defeated right now and still want to die but I do not want to feel this way. Thanks so much Lily:)
