Am I wrong for saying I don’t want him near my baby? The man disgusts me and terrifies me.
What that monster did to me was horrific and I want to keep my own child as far away as possible from him as I can.
I don’t really remember my father; I was only a toddler when he left.
I was raised my mother who liked men, it’s fair to say she slept with a variety of men before and following the separation from my father and in time she met my stepfather.
I am afraid of my stepfather and I am not able to eat or sleep now that I know I will have to see him again, not only that but allow my own child near him.
This is why I don’t want him near my baby
At the age of six years old, he began touching me.
He loved bath time; he always offered to bathe me, I hated bath time, I would cry.
At bed time my mother would send me to bed and the lock would be fastened on the outside of the door, she would open the door when she decided to wake up.
It was scary to be locked in your room all night.
That man would come into my room too during the night.
My mum never seemed to notice.
I spent my whole childhood being hurt by him; I don’t want him near my baby, what if he tried to hurt her?
My daughter is my world
I met my baby’s daddy when I was sixteen, I did report my stepfather with his support and encouragement but in the end there was not enough evidence.
I am in my early twenties now and since having my daughter my mother wants us to rebuild our relationship and resume contact.
But I am too afraid to visit her as he is still there.
Am I in the wrong to tell me mother that I don’t want him near my baby and if she wants to visit her granddaughter then she will need to come to my home, without him?
Please help me. What would you do?
