I'm adopted myself and was also mulested, but I do know who my parents were and where they are know. I just want to tell you that I know how you feel and that I will pray for you tonight right before I go to bed. I also want to tell you to NEVER EVER give up no matter what. I didn't and there's still some stuff I'm fighting. I believe deep in my heart that you can and will do it. God Bless

Your story was wonderful and very interesting. We each do have our own trials and I guess that it is comforting to hear about others.

We enjoyed your site.
YOUR STORY BROUGHT TEARS TO MY EYES AND A PAIN IN MY HEART. MY CHILDHOOD WAS NOT THE BEST BUT IT DOES NOT COMPARE TO YOURS. I WAS RAISED BY MY DAD AND A STEPMOTHER AND LATER BY MY MOTHER AND STEPDAD. I STILL HAVE BOTH MY PARENTS AND ARE IN THERE 70'S. THERE WAS A PERIOD OF 2 YEARS THAT MY 2 BROTHERS AND YOUNGER SISTER WERE LEFT ALONE FOR DAYS AT A TIME AND FOR GOD'S GRACE WE MADE IT. SOME OF THE LADY'S IN OUR NEIGHBORHOOD WANTED TO CALL THE STATE WELFARE TO PUT US IN FOSTER HOMES. ONE LADY THAT WAS IN HE GROUP,STOOD UP AND SAID NO,THOSE CHILDREN AT LEAST HAVE ONE ANOTHER, THEY WILL NOT BE SEPARETED IF I HAVE TO FEED THEM MYSELF. SHE WORKED AND DID HELP WITH FOOD AT TIMES AND WE WERE KEPT TOGETHER. WE ARE ALL STILL CLOSE AND LIVE WITHIN 20 MILES OF ONE NOTHER. I HAVE CLOSED THAT PART OF MY LIFE AND TRY TO DO THE BEST FOR THE 3 CHILDREN I HAVE. TWO ARE MARRIED AND I HAVE 4 GRANDCHILDREN (ALL BOYS) I HAVE A DAUGHTER STILL AT HOME AND SHE WILL BE 16, SEPT.2. I WENT THROUGH A DIVORCE WITH MY FIRST 2 AND I H D TO WORK, BUT I NEVER PUT MY NEEDS AHEAD OF THEM. BECAUSE OF MY CHILDHOOD,I SAID I WOULD BE A GOOD MOTHER BEFORE EVERYTHING ELSE AND I HAVE STUCK TO IT. MY DAUGHTER THAT LIVES AT HOME IS BY A SECOND MARRIAGE AND IS A JOY TO BEHOLD. ALL MY LIFE I HAVE TRY D TO HELP OTHERS, AND DURING A HARD TIME WITH MY SECOND HUSBAND ABOUT 2 YEARS AGO, MY DAD CAME TO SEE ME TO HELP ME THROUGH MY BAD TIMES. I ASK HIM WHY I HAD,HAD SO MUCH HEARTACHE IN MY LIFE, THAT I HAD TRYED TO BE A GOOD PERSON AND DO THE THINGS FOR OTHE S. BE LIKE THE LORD WOULD HAVE ME BE WHY WERE BAD THINGS STILL HAPPENING TO ME? HIS ANSWER WAS SHORT AND TO THE POINT. "LINDA LOOK AT THE THINGS THAT JESUS WENT THROUGH DURING HIS SHORT LIFE,NOTHING BUT GOOD AND HELPING OTHERS AND LOOK HOW HE WAS TREATED ND WHAT DID WE DO FOR HIS GOODNESS-WE CURSED HIM AND HUNG HIM FROM A CROSS" AFTER THAT ANSWER I FELT ASHAMED, MY TROUBLES WERE NEVER AS BAD AS HIS. YOU ON THE OTHER HAND LIVED A NIGHTMARE THAT MOST PEOPLE COULD NOT HAVE HANDLED. THE LORD PUT YOU HERE FOR PURPOSE AND HE MADE YOU STRONGER THAN MOST TO HAVE SURVIED FROM ALL THE THINGS YOU HAVE. I HOPE ONE DAY YOU CAN FIND THE PEACE YOU LONG DESERVE. IT MAY NOT BE IN THIS LIFE,BUT AT THE FEET OF CHRIST. GOD BLESS YOU,GIVE YOU MORE PEACE AS EACH DAY PASSES, A D THANK HIM FOR THE STRENGTH YOU HAD TO LIVE IN A NIGHTMARE. AND KNOW THAT HE WOULD HAVE SHOWN YOU ALL THE ANSWERS TO YOUR QUESTIONS,IF HE THOUGHT IT WAS BEST FOR YOU TO KNOW. THE JUDGE WAS RIGHT, SOMETIMES IT IS BEST THAT WE DON'T KNOW AND WHY WE CAN'T OOK AND SEE WHAT THE FUTURE HOLDS BECAUSE SOME OF US COULD NOT TAKE IT. YOU MAY NEVER FIND ALL THE ANSWERS, THINK ALONG THE PATH THAT YOU WERE LOVED BY YOUR PARENTS AND IN KNOWING YOU WERE LOVED IS A REASON TO LOOK FOR A BETTER DAY AHEAD. WE CAN NOT LIVE N THE PAST ITS GONE AND CAN'T BE CHANGED. WE DON'T KNOW ABOUT TOMORROW BECAUSE WE WEREN'T PROMISED A TOMORROW.EACH NEW DAY THAT WE HAVE IS A GIFT FROM GOD, THAT'S WHY IT'S CALLED THE PRESENT. YOU PRAY FOR GOD TO SHOW YOU THE ANSWERS AND IF HE DOESN'T,THEN YOU PRAY FOR PEACE AND A CLOSURE TO THE PAST. I AM ONLY HUMAN AND I DON'T HAVE ANY ANSWERS, BUT I WILL LISTEN AND MAYBE IN SOME SMALL WAY I CAN BE OF SOME HELP TO YOU. GOD BLESS YOU AND KEEP YOU IN HIS CARE. LINDA

Hi Clara! What you endured as a child is nothing less than a disgusting reflection of Hell. It breaks my heart that adults who would go to the bother of adopting a child, purposely adding you to their family, would be so heartless and evil. I am sure y ur experiences have left you with a sensitivity and sincere empathy that not everyone can possess. However, I urge you to look at your present and future to find peace and happiness, rather than seeking so hard to find your biological past. As horrible s this may sound, your biological family may not be the swell folks you imagine them to be, and you may be deeply disappointed with what you find, should you locate them. Draw your strength from your Lord, and your current family, and leave the past IN t e past. May God bless you and heal your wounded spirit!
