I'm at a loss for words...........

I've just finished reading your story, I started it this afternoon and couldn't put it down. Although there were times I did want to skip over parts because of how horrific it was for you and how hard those parts were to read. I had to keep reminding myself that this story was not a work of fiction but a life a child suffered thru. It's hard to believe that there are "beings" (I can't bring myself to call any of them people because they are unworthy of even such a simple title) that could be so cruel. I myself suffered abuse at an early age at the hands of a sibling, I live with the sick, disgusting thoughts that invade my mind most days and my experience was nothing compared to what you went thru and the aftermath of what you deal with on a daily basis because of it. I've tried not to let it define me as an adult not without some struggle(I've never seeked out therapy as when me and my sister finally confronted our parents with what happened to us we were told that it's not true. Many years had passed and we were adults when we decided to share with them what we went thru and they could not deal with such a revelation.) I've never told anyone besides my parents who and what happened to me and my sister before. Even to this day my husband knows I was abused but he thinks it's a distant uncle he's never met, as it shames me to admit that it was one of my siblings who had done it. My comment on here was not meant to be a unburdening of my story but to tell you how much strength I've drawn from your story. It saddens me to know how much you still suffer and how sad you are every day of your life. I will pray for you to be able to find some kind of peace in this life. And although you may not find yourself a very strong person, there are thousands of us who have read your story or book and find you one of the most amazing and strong people who we can only hope to strive to be ourselves. To live with what you've gone thru and to come out on the other side with a husband who loves you unconditionally and 3 beautiful children who you've raised with only the hand of love is a monumental feat in and of itself. I will always keep you and yours in my thoughts and prayers. Thank you for sharing such a personal part of your life. Kathy L
