A young boy tells his story of abuse and redemption...Very sensitive subject matter
My name is Lendon and I am thirteen
But my life has been hell,
My Mom and Dad they used to beat me, they used to beat me so bad, that I thought I would die, one time I almost died. I prayed to God that my Mom and Dad wouldnt hate me the way they did, but they were evil, pure evil, sometimes I found myself wishing they would die.
They didn't, but one day a social worker came to my house, and got me out of the hell I was in.
They warned me that because I was so old and had so many issues that it would be hard to find a permanent fit for me, not many people want to adopt thirteen year old boys who have been beaten, molested and nearly starved to death.
Somewhere deep within me I found the place in my heart to believe, and just months ago, I was adopted by a Chrstian family the Bryce's. They are a nice family, and I am getting involved in church, they tell me what my real parents did to me was pure evil, and they tell me that God loves me.
I also have a younger sister Katherine, who was born with Cerebral Palsy, she and I may not be blood but I would do anything for Kat, and she loves me too, she is not so bad that she cant talk or walk, she can and she is very smart, but she walks kind of funny, and sometimes kids make fun of her, it takes all my strength not to hit them, because Mamma and Daddy say hitting is wrong.
