    What Was Done...

    I've never had a parent i can trust. as sad as that sounds, it's true. My biological father abused me physically, verbally, and sexually. He also wouldn't feed me for a week or two and would threaten me.  I finally got out of that situation at age 14, but sadly, it didn't go...
