You Love Your Daddy, Don't You?: A True Tragedy About Sexual Abuse
“Mama, something terrible is wrong with me. There is blood in my panties!”
Those were the words of seven-year-old Sarah. Mama told her she must have fallen or something and not to worry. Sarah went away feeling sad; her chance for help was gone!
It was Sarah’s alter, Susie, who had been sticking pencils and other items in her private place. Susie had come when Sarah was only four years old. Susie had become Daddy’s ‘special’ little girl by sitting on his lap. In return he gave her a dollar for any change she had.
Daddy played with Susie’s pee pee and it was Susie that slept in the upstairs bedroom with her fourteen-year-old brother. Later in life, two other alters would appear.
You Love Your Daddy, Don’t You? is told through the memories of Sarah. It reveals a child’s determination to survive despite profound emotional, physical, and sexual abuse. This was compounded by constant neglect from both parents.
