As a woman, a mother, a HUMAN BIENG. My heart and soul bleed for this younglady. Honey hold your head up, REGARDLESS of what you were doing or not doing this awful crime is NOT YOUR FAULT. You will survive, you will move forward...never ever ever allow anybody to make you own this. These men CHOOSE to take advantage of a situation and hurt you! Raise above it sweetheart, become a wonderful adult, wife, mother, lover...for YOU..not for any body else.
As a adult survivor of child hood sexual abuse I can tell you I made lots of mistakes as a young one...I am a mommy, a wife, a lover, a healer. But for years I ALLOWED my abuser to own my life. Guess what I took him to court and gave him the shoes he MADE ME wear from the age 3-12. He can enjoy walking in those shoes, filled with guilt, shame, hurt, anger, RAGE! When I looked him in the eyes sitting in a court house and told him exactly how I felt it was a healing experiance. I sacrificed alot, BUT NEVER EVER SACRIFICE YOUR INTEGRITY due to this misfortune and AWFUL AWFUL crime.
I wish I could meet you and stand with you and your family during this time in your life...HUGS, STRENGTH, LOVE, COURAGE, HOPE, TENACITY, and believe it or not when your ready...FORGIVNESS...YES it is FOR YOU! It doesn't mean you have to speak it. It means giving them what they me they will get exactly what they deserve in jail and or prison...
Court and trails are going to hurt...let it hurt, let out the tears, the anger, the rage. But do not lose sight of what happened to YOU! You did not look for this, you did not deserve this, your and AMAZING YOUNGLADY...

Santa Cruz County Survivor and proud Mamma of Two AMAZING youngmen who honor, respect, and love because Mamma would not allow anything other than that!
