I was kidnapped when I was four and molested for three days by two men. I have only one memory, the day I was found. I was sitting on the lap of one of my abductors drawing when suddenly the police came barreling through the door! That's all I remember of the three days that changed my life's journey, altered every dream I had or ever would have. The day my innocence was stolen and smashed like a pumpkin after Halloween.

It was also the day I saw my rescuers! My saviors. Something so strongly implanted into my brain that I married a cop!

It's taken thousands of hours of therapy and so many different med's, to get me to where I am today. No more med's and a functional human being who has always fought for the rights if children!

I've learned that these individuals (male & female) generally come from abusive backgrounds or are seriously mentally I'll. I think once this behavior begins in an individual it generally does not stop. There are always exceptions to every rule but it's extremely rare for a molester to stop.

I do feel some sense of sorrow, not much, for the ones who end up carrying on the family legacy, if you will.

What did you need all that therapy for if you had only one memory?

I am so sorry for you terrible experience! My brother is a kidnapping and abuse survivor and I've seen how it affects his entire life and interactions (and mine and our family's lives as well). I hope you continue to heal every day.
