March 21, 2007



Jill, you've had more pain in your life than seems humanly possible to deal with. I'm so sorry.

I've read every one of your "Dear Me" posts and my heart aches for you and what you and your sisters had to go through.

I pray that this online journaling is healing for you. I'm interested in hearing more and I hope that you share with us how you've mananged to become so strong, in spite of all the pain and abuse you've gone through. And I do belive you're a strong survivor!

Please let me know when you write your next installment.

Blessings to you!


Jill, you are a true inspiration for so many! I know your Dad is truly at peace now ~ he's probably more proud of you than you'll ever imagine. He's looking down on you and seeing the strong woman you became.


Jill, with all you've gone through in your life, I am so amazed that you turned out to be such a good person. You are definitely an inspiration for others. Maybe one day you can turn this series into a book and help others who have gone through the same trials in their lives. I know there are people out there who could greatly benefit from hearing your story, and how you overcame it all.

Oh, The Joys

I'm so glad to hear he was convicted. I have a friend who was a victim of her own father and her brother, and though she is over 40, it is still painful. Thank you for writing all of this down and sharing it.


I know the tailspin is coming. I know it. I want this to be the end - for healing to begin RIGHT NOW. And yet, I know ... I know there is more.

This is too much - I'm so so so sorry.

It makes me want to open my eyes and look around my own community.


Jill, I have nothing else to add. Know that I'm still reading, and my heart hurts.


I wish I could give you a hug right now, you have so many hurts that you have dealt with. I know your story must be hard for others who have been through similar situations to read, I know it will touch so many though. I pray you are healing from all the horrible things you endured growing up.


I read this entry with shock and then went back and read the rest. What I wanted to get to you via the comments is that you are not alone. Your circumstances are shockingly similar to my home life when I was a kid, only it was my own dad, not a step-father.

There are many, many times I wish I had a blog that no one could track back to my real name so that I could actually purge some of the crap out my life.

My problem is that my sisters and brothers have never dealt with any of our life with my father, as far as I know. My one sister even claims that she never knew what was going on and she was living in the same house.

It took some real guts to write what you did and it will help others out there, like me, who have always felt alone.

Adventures In Babywearing

Wow. I am trying to post a comment here that would be fitting, and help me hold back tears... I must just say that I hope you feel peace now yourself, and can maybe breathe lighter...You've been so honest to share this story with us, amazing.



Hey girl. Are you okay? It's not like you to be MIA for a week!


I was going to ask the same thing. Hope you're ok, Jill!

The Wooden Porch

I just read the whole story from the beginning. I can't even begin to imagine what you went through. I feel deeply sad, horrified, and angry at what you had to go through in your life.
