Hello everyone, I’ve seen the story my mam shared and we always tell each other everything and I’m so proud of her, I decided to write my own story and let u all know how it was for me so here I go.
I am now 13 and I love my life, I have a loving mother and great step father and my wonderful little brother who is 3,
My life was not how I wanted it to be due to my horrible dad (I don’t like to call him dad).
I can remember right back to the age of 2 , my Mam worked in a bank and was always there, Monday to Friday, she always took me to nursery and picked me up. I loved watching her put on her makeup and still do, she’s beautiful.
My dad was horrible to my Mam, he used to call her names that I wish not to repeat.
At night I would hear him hitting my Mam
I could hear her screaming.
I used to want to run out of my room and save her but I was too scared, I loved both of them and couldn’t understand why my dad hurt her.
Every morning she would be up before me all smiles for me, now I know this was just to hide her pain.
She would always read me stories, take me on days out and stuff and make sure I had the best upbringing.
One night my dad came in drunk with his friend, and from what I heard he dragged my Mam out of bed and beat her badly and I heard a man and my dad talking and laughing saying “you can have first go” it went on for ages and my Mam was just crying.
I would hear my dad hitting my mam and there was nothing I could do to help her.
The next Morning my Mam wasn’t up before me with her big smile, my dad took me to school that day.
When I got home, Mam was in kitchen cooking tea she had cuts all over her arms and face and she couldn’t open one of her eyes, yet she still had that smile for me.
I was 5 at the time and I remember very clearly what she said, she sat me down and said ” my darling Aimee I love you so much your my whole world, I’m leaving your dad and going back to your grand parents house. I want you to come with me but please let it be your choice babe”
I told her I couldn’t leave my friends and didn’t want daddy left on his own, we sat and hugged and cried all night.
Three weeks later my Mam was all packed ready to go, she took me to school and told me to be brave and look after daddy, we both hugged and said our goodbyes.
I saw My mam every weekend and she rang every night
My dad started bathing me which I thought was normal, you already know what he did to me so I won’t go into it.
He told me not to tell anyone unless I would be taken away from everyone forever and told me my Mam would never love me anymore.
My Mam met my stepdad and they bought a house together.
My Mam met me one day from school which was weird as it’s a long drive, she took me to her house and I lived there with her and my stepdad, I know she had a lot of fights with my dad that day and the police came but they were happy I was safe.
My Mam went to court and won full custody of me.
I was so happy I wish I never wanted to stay with my horrible dad he’s dead to me.
I told my Mam everything when I was 9 , she has supported me through everything and lays with me at night until I fall asleep.
I love my Mam so much, you’re the best
I am so proud of her, any bad thing she goes through she has the biggest smile just for me.
My life now is very good and I love everything about it now.
I have bad days but my Mam and stepdad help me through it.
Thanks for letting me share my story please don’t think bad of my Mam as she did what she thought was best and I love her.
