Thank you. There were a few people who asked me why she was over there to begin with.... I mean REALLY??? I got so mad at those people asking that question! I didn't give a **** why she was over there, the nurses didn't care why she was over there, and my H didn't care why she was over there. She was violated horribly PERIOD! BUT, I know why people do not go to a so called trusted person or the police when stuff like this happens, I really see why.
When I was 13, I was raped by a 16 year old acquaintance, I was somewhere I shouldn't have been. I could never tell my mom what happened, I would've gotten in trouble for being somewhere I shouldn't have been.
That is what I learned from my sexual abuse... To let my children know that it is NOT right, that it is NOT their fault, and to NEVER be scared to come to me about anything, and especially something like this. I have been there, no one helped me, I didn't have anyone to go to, and it affected me in my life.
