I am usually a private person, I dont really share my personal life online. Today, I want to share my story, and hopefully, it will help someone to speak up and/or better protect their kids. I was molested by my own father when I was a child 10-12 years old. I met him when I was 10 and went to live with him to another country with his wife let's just say that they are the worst humans I could ever have met in my life. the wife did not participate in the sexual abuse but she did everything else (mental abuse, physical, verbal, etc) I had the courage to tell her everything my dad did at the beginning she acted like she loved me so much and she was on my side she wanted to help me but she betrayed me, she sided with her husband and they are still together, the moved to the US 7 years ago. Let me also add that I am the product of a rape, this man raped my mom and wanted her to abort me but she did not ( that is why I love my mom so much) My mom told me everything he did to her and of course he denied everything when I confronted him, last year I saw a theraphist for a short period of time and she told me it is important to trust my mom. Recently I asked mom why she sent me to live with him if she knew he was a bad person, she told me she could never imagine that he would dare to something like that to me because I was his daughter, and the situation in Haiti was unberable at the time. I don't resent my mom because I understand why she did it. Moral of the story never send your kids to life with strangers in hope of a better life no matter who that person is. I am also in the US and life is difficult as a single woman, sometime I wish I had a father and knowing he lives so close to me hurts so bad. I was no contact with him for a while but recently I reach out so he could help me but a car battery, I don't want to be friends or anything because I hate him so so much but at the same time if I see a car crash him that might hurt because we have the same blood. Should I be cordial with him or do no contact again?
