My Sister Is Being Abused And I Don't Know What To Do.

My sister is 19 years old and has been with this abusive guy for about two years now i cant even remember how many black eyes he has given her and every time she comes over she has bruises all over her arms from him grabbing her so hard. Everyone in my family keeps telling her to leave and she wont. It is hard because my mom dates the sons father so my sister really has no where to get away from him. I have tried over and over to get her into groups, shelters, and even just away from him and nothing helps. I pray every night and need any suggestions to help me help her. me and my mom have stepped in to protect her just for him to abuse us as well. I just want my little sister back and I don't know what to do.

She can't leave until she is ready. Trust me, it's not easy to do. Just be there for her until the time comes that SHE wants to leave. When they day comes, help her.

I'm 19 and too with an abusive partner over two years. My advice to you for your sister is just be there for her. If my family pushed me to leave my man Id turn on them he would twist my mind that they are jealous etc. Just be there for her one day with the help of god she will walk and will need you more than ever. Best Wishes xx
