Hi My Name Is Dolores I'm 48 years old. Im a Survivor and I Am Enough. I was sexually abused by my Father from the age of 3-16 years old when it resulted in me having a child by him. My Mother knew of the abuse she wouldn't sign the adoption or abortion papers. I had to wait until I was 21 to do it and relive the pain of seeing that little girl everyday. My so called Mother Loved her more then she Loved me. It's pretty sad that we are only given one Mother but she is suppose to protect us she didnt. I tried to commit suicide to forget about the pain. If it wasn't for my Grandmother who raised me and said I have to have Faith and told me that I Am Enough. Who knows where I would be but the Grace of God I survived and I am a better person today. Because I didn't let them break me. I ended up giving her up for adoption she was given the life that she deserved and the Love from someone who could Love her. I hope I can be some kind of hope for someone who is going through what I went through there is Hope You Will And Can Survive It. Have Faith and know your strong and You are Enough! Thank You!
