This is an incredibly honest, traumatic and brave story of Jen and Sam’s horrific experiences. Too many people are indifferent to child abuse or cannot bear to read accounts like this. But Jen and Sam are demonstrating that recovery and positive outcomes are possible ; that it is important to talk about one’s experiences in order to grow and heal if you can; that child abuse survivors don’t have to be alone any more. This book is another example of Jen’s longstanding efforts in helping others who have gone through similar experiences. – Amazon Review
A True Story of Organised Child Abuse
Unwanted and homeless from day one: Social services found Jennie a new home. Tragically she was enslaved into a brutal regime of horrific abuse, extreme neglect, loss and degrading humiliation with foster parents.
It continued behind closed doors in a seemingly well-respected household for twenty-three years. The foster family trafficked her to other sickening perpetrators of organised abuse rings. The death of both foster parents did not stop the hideous abuse, which continued for decades as they hunted down Jennie and her son despite moving thirty-six times.
Jennie developed DID Dissociative Identity Disorder to survive after suffering such severe trauma.
All Jennie knew was shocking betrayal – including what she discovered from her social service records years later.
How she and her son survived is unfathomable, but Jennie’s remarkable resilience shines through as she refuses to give up.
Social care notes 1965 – 1974
“The Stabards were excused from the previous allegation of abusing children in their care.”
“Noted that Faith and Jennie are possibly being sexually abused by the Stabards. If we were to investigate this, our problem would be, who would care for these misfits in society.”
“It is in the best interest to stay where they are as it is regarded they will not have any long-term problems as to the result of the abuse.”
“These Children are lucky to be placed in a home setting with experienced foster carers.”
