'I was born and broken in Birkenhead, abused from infancy by a network of every kind of pervert from "thinks it's love" to "show it hurts". I was unwanted, beaten, sold, swapped, photographed, filmed, left for dead, corrupted, blamed, betrayed, ignored and orphaned.

But I was also born with a fire inside me. I call it my Phoenix Fire. I am no victim - that word only describes what happened to me. Nor am I a survivor because that implies I am over it. I am a Phoenix - a work in ...

    This is by far one of the most horrifying cases of child abuse that I have read about to date. As I was reading this, and she was giving the dates, I kept thinking to myself "What was I doing at the time?". The author and myself are about the same age. Very scary to think about. I just don't understand how something like this could go on so long with no one believing her.
