I was about 7 years old . Again my mom and dad were fighting again so my dad took us to my aunts house . We all had a fire going . At the time I wasn’t thinking about my parents fighting , I was having fun . Well it was about 10:30 at night on a Saturday .Me and my cousin were tired , so everyone went to lay down . Well I went to lay down in my room at the time , my aunt had us rooms for when we stayed . So I was in my room almost asleep when my uncles walks in my room . He sit on the end of my bed and tells me I’m beautiful at the age of 7 I wasnt thinking oh this is wired I thought my uncle loved me . Well he started climbing up the bed . Then he took his pants off and told me I was very special to him . Then he took my pants off , I tried screaming then he covered my mouth . i layed there helpless and I felt like I wanted to die . That’s The day my world changed forever . I’m 20 years old now and this is really hard to talk about for me . I’m crying telling you guys . I didn’t tell anyone till I was 16 years old . And when I told my mom she told me I wanted attention , that it didn’t happen . I started hating my mom . My life will never be the same . But at the same time it made me who I am today . I’m married to the most amazing women in the world . I have a beautiful daughter who we both love dearly !
