I have no words. One of my children confided in me that she has been raped anally, vaginally, and orally for the last four years by her step father. She is only a baby, 8 years old. They arrested him and I spent 4 1/2 hours with DHS and the police. I am disguested and in disbelief. I want to throw up. I want to cry. I want to kill the asshole who did it. I saw him, in the back of the police car. He looked right at me. The mom was devasted, she looked at me, crying hysterically, and said Thank You. I was told today that I saved 5 childrens' lives, the two little girls who were raped, and the Mom who was being domestically abused.
I am numb.
I feel sick.
I have no words.
*This is actually the first time I have sincerely thought about giving up on teaching. My Mom told me that to do a nursing program it would take 2 years. I'm not sure. If I am not there helping these kids, who will be? The nurse didn't think it was an abuse situation at first before the little girl disclosed information. Who will take care of these babies? As much as I do not like them sometimes they are like my children. Poor babies. Every case that is found theres a million that aren't.
My motto although I am not feeling it right now
