Switch­ing on the light

Thank you so very much Amanda Sil­lars for shar­ing your story about your ab­duc­tion at 11 (Au­gust is­sue). It opened my eyes and my mind to so much. While my chil­dren were never ab­ducted, they ex­pe­ri­enced trauma at very young ages. Five years ago I fi­nally left their fa­ther after an­other af­fair and have never felt so re­lieved. Un­for­tu­nately my daugh­ter has been brain­washed by her fa­ther and will not com­mu­ni­cate with me. It has bro­ken my heart. With time, and through hear­ing and read­ing sto­ries like yours, the light bulb has gone on and I have re­alised that my ex has al­ways ma­nip­u­lated my daugh­ter against me. With time I hope she will re­alise the truth and see her fa­ther for the per­son he re­ally is. I am miss­ing pre­cious years here. NAME WITH­HELD
