My dad raped me and my 7 sisters, I was only 9 months old and my mum didn’t do a thing to stop him. This is the first time I have spoken out about this and I am 25 years old. I was placed in foster care when I was 18 months old and would stay there till the age of 16.
I hate the feelings I have inside
I was far too young, I don’t really know what happened but I do remember going to court every year because my mother was trying to get her kids back.
My dad had been giving my sisters a bath and my other sisters walked in as he was molesting them.
Another time my mum was changing my sisters nappy when she needed to get the powder so she called my dad to come and hold her, when she got back my sister was screaming and all red and swollen. She didn’t do a thing about the abuse my father subjected us too.
She has schizophrenia but that still doesn’t change a thing, why would a mother allow this to happen to her children?
My brother grabbed my dad a few years ago and tried to get him to tell him what happened, to tell him the truth. My brother grabbed hold of my dad’s fingers and cut his fingers with a knife as he wrote down everything that happened. I never saw the bit of paper but I heard about it and it wasn’t nice.
My foster family where nice but it was hard going to school and when people said me and my mum did this or that I used to get upset because I never knew what it was like.
I never had a mother to go shopping with or too talk to like mother and daughter bond.
My foster family were very strict, we had to ask for food , got 5 dollars for pocket money and had to clean our rooms every Saturday and she would check to see if there was dust and if there was dust we had to clean everything again.
I wish I had a normal life. I wish I knew what it was like to have a normal family. I may not know much about family but I sure as hell am going to give my daughter the best life ever.
