SHAME



Disclosing abuse is the hardest thing a child can do. Especially when for years they are brainwashed into believing it was their fault, they made him do it, I made him do it he once told me, at that time I never knew what he was talking about but he thought I had found out. The abuser will do all in his/her power to avoid accepting responsibility for his/her actions. All blame is put upon the abused, still to this day in court a child can be accused of enticement. I wonder sometimes how far have we have actually come...and always its not far enough.

Reality is abuse exists. It has existed in its many forms since the human race has been around yet again and again we fail to stop it. It is the human races biggest shame and biggest secret. Silencing the true reality of abuse is what feeds it. Yet even when the silence is broken it is an impossible task for most to get justice.

I worry what message we send our children, our future. Every day thousands of children are abused because there is no deterrent.

Welcome,

My blog is a place to offload my mind. A release where I can be free.

My story has no beginning and no end. I can however give you some background info. I was born into life and here I am like us all. I first started blogging as Mother4Justice.
It came about when my eldest son disclosed 16 years of child abuse to me. Within time I learnt my youngest was also abused.

 I started blogging in the hope of making sense of what had happened to my children and supporting them as they tried to bring their abuser to Justice.  After over 2 years waiting for a trail date, over 7 preliminary hearings,  their abuser was given an 18 month Suspended Sentence For Assault and never prosecuted for the emotional and sexual abuse that he put my children through.  These charges were withdrawn not dropped, according to the Procurator Fiscal we should take some comfort in that.

Here we are, at the aftermath of our so called Justice System....I hope all involved will forever hang their heads in shame !
