154 -Sharon

I was used by a pedophile pastor for several years and, when my parents discovered the abuse, they “forgave” the pastor and he continued to preach. We continued to attend his church. My father, with my mother’s full knowledge used this opportunity to begin his own sexual abuse. I bore his child when I was 16 years old. The baby was given up for adoption. I never got to touch or hold the baby. I was in my 30’s when I sought help, and have made the most progress in my healing after the age of 50. I’m willing to do whatever is needed to help others in distress because of this horrible epidemic in our world.
