I realize that what my step-father was doing to me every night was not normal. I covered my secrets and shame by being ‘Little Ms. Perfect’. Why didn’t someone save me when my mother could not–as she felt helpless. It is the adults job to empower children and teach them language of ‘speaking out’. What happens to a child who was not protected as adult survivor of a toxic life? How do they recover?
