" I am a child of rape. My mother was 19 and at a party. She was raped by three different people from her high school. She did not know she was pregnant with me till she was three months.
She had the money for an abortion and went to get one thinking my grandparents as religious as they were would kick her out. Before going to abort me she left a note saying where she went. My grandfather found it and drove to get my mother- saving my life. My grandparents were not happy but they understood what needed to be done.
I am 32 now and have a wonderful relationship with my mom who raised me, my grandparents who saved me, and my adoptive father who loves me.
I was just as much a victim as my mother." -Elizabeth
