I noticed that it's hard to find your blog in google, i found it on 23th spot, you should
get some quality social bookmarks to rank it in google and increase traffic. I had the same problem with my website, your should search in google for - k2 seo services - it helped me a lot

And also many animals from race horses to pets that were abuse and neglected finally founded wonderful homes with Love and Joy and Happiness and are doing well too. Bless them, and also may all who did not have a happy ending - both man and animals - find themselves in Jesus loving home forever with him.

To the people who commented to say the story is fake, that you can not survive this kind of abuse and neglect that Debra and her sisters went through. Yes, you can ! Look at the holocaust surviors and the slavery, and many others stories like this ! Bless the surviors !

Dear Debra - I am sorry you suffered a very bad childhood, and for your sisters too. And also for your brothers who I am sure hated seeing you and your sisters suffer. Are you back with your sisters - May God bless you and your family. I wish you much Joy and Love.

This is an inspiring story, of a child's will to survive. For people to question this story is completely outrageous; nobody but the family members were there to see this happen. She was fed enough to keep her alive, which she states that her mother fed. That there explains how she survived to be an adult. Also, coming from a sixteen year old it does seem hard to understand how some people aren't affected by some of the worst beatings and abuse cases. In my family there is a bit of abuse and I already am affected by this. I become very easily upset, but I control it to the point where it doesn't necessarily effect the people around me.
8:25pm on Monday, October 14th, 2013
WOW ! i have no words to explain how horrible your mother was. I am currently studying child abuse and to see how it effected you in your future just shows how differently it affects everyone. Your story is inspiring. I just hope your devel mother get's what she deserves.
The thing i don't understand is that, considering she is the same gender, why did she feel like you and your sister, as a female, were the devil's children. Would'nt she have thought the same about her ? Why did she protect herself too ?
Logic right ?.. anyways, Amazing recovery and I hope your four boys are proud to have such a strong mother. Keep fighting, your perfect the way you are.

I believe most of this lady's story but not before the age of three as she would have no memory of that time especialy as a baby and at one and two years of age. this is not the worst I have read, I lived through Worse from 3 to 16yrs and yes I WAS an alcoholic a shoplifter, sexually active to have people like me, split personality (I have kept hidden from people)deep depression, suicidal etc. I have still managed to bring up children with love decency and a very good home on my own. But I have never fully recovered and never will.
more then one

you're very strong to be able to share this story it has helped me to think about things I cannot even talk about the things that have happened to means a child I've been in therapy on my life and I can honestly say now at 58 years old I'm finally being able to move forward thank you for sharing your story and it has helped me to understand is more out there than just one it takes a strong person to be able to share it I've spent my whole life hiding mine maybe one day I'll be able to share mine until now I can't talk about it I talk to my counselor she's the only one that knows it's far too difficult for me to put the pieces together and there's so much and I don't remember I suffer now from the dissociation to see this this is so she so hard to read I truly appreciate your courage many blessings to you and all of your family your sisters in survive and your brothers didn't know any better I pray that all of the answer to God one day and I pray that you to be encouragement to those that need to hear your story again I can't even imagine trying to talk about mine god bless you

Alison is a major cunt, like what the fuck, what gives you the right to say that. I bet your just some fake ass 300 pound bitch. These things actually happen so you should shut your fucking mouth and pick up a book or a newspaper because honey blind ass people know these things actually happen.
p.s. you are a cunt!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
4:58am on Sunday, September 15th, 2013
This story is so fake. She would have severe mental, physical and psychological issues, she would probably have a multiple personality disorder to deal with the abuse. I don't know how anyone can fall for this complete bull. Shame on her!! Freak.

Yeah, sorry, but there is no way this is a true story. If it were true, "Debrah" would be severely mentally and emotionally challenged. You don't walk away from something as horrific as that and turn out okay, no matter how "strong" you are. This story is FAKE!!! Do your research, people!
1:02pm on Thursday, August 15th, 2013
Wow. I am truly sorry for what happened to Debra. But I am grateful to God, that she was able to pull such hard times. God has truly worked a miracle in your life and I pray that he always bless you. Thank you for sharing
5:42pm on Friday, August 9th, 2013
this si how we should all be im glad she became strong I m angry at the fact that no one stepped in to help but bad stuff happens to everyone thank god ahe broke the cycle and became a really good mother
4:19am on Wednesday, July 31st, 2013
that is amazing
think of Psalm 18: preserve me oh God for I trust in thee.
continue to pray, and the Lord will comfort you. He is a saviour.
God bless you.

U go girl great. Story iam so proud of u
12:32pm on Monday, June 24th, 2013
I couldn't agree more that this woman is a pillar of strength, but then she had to go and start talking about Jesus. Can we not give a human being credit for their own survival without dragging an imaginary friend into it? My mother was abusive, not to this extent, but certainly abusive, and I had a bad childhood. I'm now a successful adult, as well as an atheist.

My mother was horrible to me as well and i raised myself since i was 6 yrs old having to steal food from stores to not starve. Im 17 now and i live in NY and im starting my own own family.....that was the most amazing story ive ever heard in my life. Ur very strong and my prayers go out to anyone else who was or still is a victim of abuse and neglect
4:03am on Tuesday, April 30th, 2013
what her mother did was awful the evil cow,how can a human being do that to another and to her own children aswell, her illnesses do not metter,she knew what she was doing and she knew it was wrong and extremely inhuman,i hope that all the childer are a okay,my heart goes out to them.

Horrible treatment from people who are suppose to love and take care of you....sorry..... Am wondering though, what happened to your two sisters? If you found your evil mental "mother", surely you found them... And what kind of man Is your husband? Did you find a good husband that cherishes and is a stable relationship?
4:03am on Thursday, April 4th, 2013

I was moved by this. I'm fifteen this year and I've gone through some stuff too, not as extreme as this but I sort of see where it's coming from. I say, good for Debra that she can forgive like that. I doubt I could, but after reading this I'll sure try.
Admin: We're sorry that you've experienced such hardships and glad that you find some solace in this piece.

That was so bad
9:39am on Friday, January 11th, 2013
My prayers are with you and your sister. No child or person should go through abuse be it physical, mental, or other wise. There are so many forms of abuse. You have turned into what seems to be a beautiful woman inside and out. I can only wish this had never happen to you as I wish this for any child who is or has gone through abuse of any kind. To be so strong as you are can only be in some peoples dreams. I can't wait to look up your books and read them as well. I feel blessed reading your story today. I am disabled and basically bedridden after car accident shattered my back in 1993. You have given me so much inspiration to find some way that I can make a difference. Thank you for sharing your horrific life story. You are so brave Sincerely, Pam - NE Nevada

I find it do incredible that so many of these abused children make it to older ages. It takes a great amount of time and effect to breast feed or even bottle feed a baby who needs food and help around the clock to survive. You would think that if these children were hated, tortured, and neglected so much how did they make it through the years or months that they couldn't even move, roll over, crawl, or walk. I wonder what the mentality is to keep them alive through this time period when they are so in need of everything and then completely ignore them more and more and more as they age.

i find this story incredible. child abuse is a very big deal and needs more attention. saddly this kind of thing happens every day. this story makes me want to make a difference in the world. i want to work to help save animals fro abuse. (i wouldnt be able to handle the child abuse cases, id be too freaked out.) like child abuse, animal abuse is a big problem to. debra, you have become my role model, and many other people rule model as well. god bless debra and every other human being, (or animal) going through simalur situations.
3:45pm on Tuesday, December 11th, 2012
i am 13 and i paid more attention to your story then the book "a child called it". I feel strongly that god doesnt exist and before reading this i thought there was no excuse to believe. i think for most people, god is worthless. but for you, its a mirical and you get the privlage to believe in such thing.(sorry if i sound bitchy). god bless you!
1:12pm on Thursday, November 29th, 2012
Debra, Your are the chosen one. God put you in that position to carry out His mission. Your story is going to help people all over the world to heal from their past tragedies. Keep it up
3:23pm on Thursday, November 22nd, 2012
It's very well written and as a 15 year old I think Child Abuse should stop. I'm reading all these stories on child abuse for my Gov. class and this is by far the worst one I've ever read. People like you who can survive this inspire me to be a good friend/sister/and listener to those who need me. Thank-you. I'm so sorry it happened to you. I wish it hadn't.

I have gone through equally as devastating life's events which also includes the murdering of my son via an illegal saline induced abortion at my being more than six and a half months pregnant, the subsequent auto accident of the father of my son that I carried for over six months and his going into a coma and then emerging (thank God) partially paralyzed only to be murdered by my biological father at his Lily Street apartment nine years later on (I might add) wound up to be the very day my stepmother purposely planned and delivered a child (son) on the very day my biological murdered the father of my son of more than 6.5 months of gestation. I am also a SBS survivor from Feb/March of 1960 who was admitted originally for 'lesions' of the mouth whereas it was then discovered that I had a broken jaw & skull fractures & subdural henatoma. It was my biological father who committed these crimes but because of the 'good old buddy mentality' in the rural area where I was born and grew up it has all been swept under the rug. No one cares and I'm left to pick up the pieces whilst others sit in their big houses, own their expensive cars, and businesses and even went on to have kids. Sad. Truly a pathetic injustice not only to me as a human being but also to my murdered son of >6 months of life and the father of my son I loved with all my heart and soul.
4:15am on Sunday, October 7th, 2012
I find it unusual that when she is married at 16 and has 4 kids by the age of 22, at no time is there a mention of the dad (husband) and their relationship, if they are still married,how he supports her emotionally, etc. Why leave out something so key to this story?
11:26pm on Sunday, September 30th, 2012
Im terribly sorry for what you had to go through as a child but glad you had the strength to overcome and survive. Your story reminds me alot of Joe Peters story. His book is called cry silent tears and recommend anyone and everyone to read it. I never really knew the evil we had in this world until i stumbled across this book.
2:27pm on Wednesday, September 26th, 2012
Another Survivor. God Bless you Debra. Proof that one can get past any tragedy. We can forgive, heal our soul, but never forget.
I've been abused.....
3:56am on Saturday, September 15th, 2012
Feel so bad for you.. Your mother is a sick woman and one day she will have to stand before god and she will not be forgiven. She deserves to burn in HELL!!! I reccommend people read the book 'A child called it' . stay strong.
WHY DO U WNNA NOE
1:16pm on Sunday, September 9th, 2012
This story is very touching im so sorry this happened to you
11:53am on Monday, September 3rd, 2012
This story is just like what happened to that man that wrote a book called "child called it". His mother did almost all that to him when he was 7.
10:42am on Thursday, August 30th, 2012
too bad so sad
1:38am on Wednesday, August 22nd, 2012
i found this story whilst looking up information on child abuse... i called my friends over and we read Debra's story from top to bottom... by the end we were all in tears and couldn't stop
WHY THE HELL DO YOU CARE?
10:02pm on Sunday, August 19th, 2012
sad and inspireing. i HATE THAT STUPID MUMMY

Waoo I mean waoo to all the people that complain about a little bit of suffering and becoming bums and not go to college and be productive,take a look at her life,never heard something worse than that and she became a psycologist? Wao God bless her I did like many people suffer from abuse but that was nothing compared to this horrible story,this tells you if you dont succeed in life is because you dont want to and are lasy Especially when there's so many opportunitis handed it out to you daily God bless this woman I would like to talk toher or something

11:30am on Thursday, August 2nd, 2012
Hello Debra, god bless you, i salute you as a person, no one should ever go threw what u went threw, You are a brave woman (Child), you are a very special person i will never foget you aswell as your name.
Jesus Loves You
12:19am on Thursday, August 2nd, 2012
Debra, I admire your courage, you are an inspiration to the world! Im glad you found Jesus through all that! I too suffered some physical and emotional abuse growing up, and Ive developed some issues from it, soo I look up to you. Keep spreading the word of god! Nobody quite appreciates Jesus like those who were helpless and hopeless!
5:32am on Sunday, July 29th, 2012
Funny how the system always fails people like her! About two years ago my kids were taking from me because my abuser (my mother) said I wanted to murder them they said a birthmark my daughter had was a belt wound they gave my angels to this monster and a year it took them to realize there mistake and then gave my children to there alcaholic father claiming it Was best because she would never leave us alone a month later we had a meeting the father abadoned my kids and I finaly got them back cps ignored all of the experts twisted the words of a psyc and my kids now have behavior problems and are emotionaly damaged the system is failing and no one is fighting to correct this im not a perfect mother but I love my children and I will do anything for them! My mother beat me for even looking at her would call me a lesbian when hugged her even tried killing me multiple times and this is the women who cps said was a good caring concerned grandmother ignored my warning and god did they try hard to make mr look crazy I just hope that cps learns from there mistakes!
7:19pm on Thursday, July 26th, 2012
Reading this story, I guess I didn't have it that bad growing up. for no reason at all, my mother would pinch my inner thighs so damn hard it broke skin. My hair was pulled while she brushed it, she burnt my back with a curling iron, dropped my food on the ground and tell me "GOD MADE DIRT and DIRT DON'T HURT EAT IT!" I just can't fathom the thought of any child going through this abuse. I really hope that they grew up to be the best parents in the world to their kids and not traumatized by it and treating their kids as such. GOD BLESS DEBRA and her sibling.
12:14pm on Wednesday, July 25th, 2012
I ONLY CANT BELIEVE THAT PEOPLE LIKE THAT HAVE CHILDREN OVER AND OVER, WHEN THERE ARE PEOPLE OUT THERE THAT CANT HAVE CHILDREN NOR CAN ADOPT BC WE CANT AFFORD IT, HOW CAN PEOPLE LET THIS HAPPEN?? NOW THAT SHE IS OLDER WHY DOESNT SHE PRESS CHARGES ON HER MOTHER / STEP FATHER, SURELY BY NOW SHE KNOWS THEY DID WRONG!!!!

It is hard to believe that this is a truestory. How can a mother be so insane and lose her motherly instinct. Even a lioness will not torture her cub. For me my children are precious gift from God. Friends, just remember that there is a mother monster like Debra's but I believe there are much more caring and loving mothers.
10:40pm on Friday, July 13th, 2012
Notice, just notice how she was abuse only because of religious purposes. HOW in the world could anyone's mind became so corrupt to the point where they accuse their own daughters of being the "Devil's children" simply because she did not expect girls and wanted boys? For God's sake, I would have her locked up in the same condition she put those girls in for that! This is highly unacceptable and it is partly Larry's fault for not calling police or going to court to press charges of severe child abuse against his wife!
11:32pm on Thursday, July 12th, 2012
These stories should be big bombshells on the news. No child want to be abuse like this or deserve it.
6:06pm on Thursday, July 12th, 2012
things were moving too fast and he got scerad. Well he was the one who came back with me when I drove 500 miles to see him. My point is if you can figure it out is: Don't move there or tell her you want to or even tell her you love her if you don't mean it! Karma is a bitch and I feel pitty for all the men who do good women wrong guess that is why there are so many hatefull bitches in this world because men mess up the heads of the good women and well they just turn into the run of the mill evil she devils that were already pleagueing the earth. Hey guys keep it up and eventually WE will ALL be cold hearted because of your lies!
1:21pm on Thursday, July 12th, 2012
i wud hav never thought dat a mother wud do such ting to her child. mostly i believe dat d fathers normally do dis stuff but not even to dat extreme. im so so happy dat u did d rite ting and now ur a successful woman to ur society. may God continue to bless u n also ur family...God bless!

I was severely abused from 3 till 13, parents, cycle of many.. it still haunts me, and I still hold the bitterness with my mother, and she is deceased..It never goes away, and the horor of it all is just horrible...but no one under stands really unless they lived it.. My story was in the 76 Time Mag..
10:05am on Friday, July 6th, 2012
I am so sorry for what Debra had to endure, and I shudder to think how many other helpless children are preyed upon by adults. I stumbled onto this site while trying to find out if a recent, very disturbing film I viewed called Michael was based upon an actual case study. Although these stories break my heart and disturb me deeply, survival stories also bolster my motivation to be the best teacher that I can be, every day of my life, with every single student.
7:53am on Thursday, July 5th, 2012
To Belinda Cleary from Detriot: if you're going to refer to this story as "tame" in comparison to your own, you should at least use examples that would make your remark convincing. Your examples are in fact, quite "tame" in comparison to this story. Nothing you've said is particularly noteworthy. You sound like a pouting self-centered brat who thinks your life is worse than anyone else's because you didn't get the bike you wanted for Christmas or something. You'll have to do better if you're looking to take the focus off this woman's incredible story in favor of gaining some pity for yourself.
7:41am on Thursday, July 5th, 2012
A horrific story indeed. I'd be very interested in reading one of her books. I couldn't help but notice a few trolls in here as well - cowards typing from the safety and anonymity of their keyboards every offensive remark that comes to mind and finding it funny. These same pathetic cockroaches would feign a very different emotion about all this if their identities were revealed. The internet sure does make for some very brave boys (or girls.) Color me unimpressed. Time for some parents to take some laptops away - you trolls clearly aren't mature enough for the privilege of using the 'net.
8:33am on Friday, June 29th, 2012
This is so terrible! Child and animal abuse makes me so mad. Debra is such a wonderful fighter.........she's really awesome.

I'm so glad you survived your childhood and that you have become a blessing to others. Keep up the good work and I pray God blesses you in every part of your life.

this is a very powerful story and everyone needs to read this especially those who had everything handed to them as a child so they can realize just how truely lucky they were to never experience the agonizing torture on a daily basis. however, much like you said, only true joy and happiness comes from hardships and personal suffering, if you choose to have the will power to overcome the seemingly impossible obstacles.

that's just the saddest:(
6:50pm on Tuesday, April 17th, 2012
i think this was a story that needed to be told because there are to many kids out there that dont have support and no one to call because most adults dont believe what they have to say and they feel trapped like they cant get out no matter what they do are how good they behaive and their are to many kids out there suffering today and its sad because its starting in their own home and thats where a child should feel most safe most protected like nothing can happen to me here and its not but i hope and pray that kids who are suffering and that are getting abused get that satisfaction of being free and having someone love them like they deserve to be loved

im doing a project on child abuse and i saw ur story and read it...i am soo sorry to here about your terrible childhood. No child deserves any kind of abuse, let alone all the kinds out there. i dont know you but your story touched me deeply. you are a very brave soul to put ur story out there hoping to help in some way. Just by this you can tell how strong you really are! you should be very proud because im sure you have helped some little boy or girl how to get through there abuse, sometimes its just nice to know you arent alone!

wow I was also abused when i was younger by my father who is now in prison for 10 years cause of something else that i dont know about and i think that people that are so screwed in the head to abuse children should not be allowed to have any freedoms what so ever or any rights just for what they do cause they think its fun and satisfying...jsut makes me sick and i am glad that

Wow, I thought I had a horrible child hood but it is nothing compared to yours and Dave Pelzers. I could not imagine the treatment or life you two endured at such young ages. Shame on the authorities for never doing a damn thing and shame on your family! After going throught the sexual physical and mental abuse I went through I wanted to become a child service worker but changed my program because I couldn't stand the thought of always having my hands tied and didn't know if I could live with myself after the things I would have to deal with because I care so much for children. Even today it is hard for me to over come my thoughts when thinking there are children out there still living lives like this. I use my child hood as a learning process and lesson as to how to treat my children and how to love them. It is beautiful when people get their stories out there, now if we could only change the laws on Child abuse and maybe make new parents have mental evaluations done before they can take their child home. It is not a cure but may help!

Because I wanna help the Kids in Africa and I also wanna help the Albino's and I wanna help the Homeless people find homes, and help STOP the War...

I am so glad to hear this story, I was abused sexually by a number of family members, as a little girl I felt powerless to their attacks. But I have to say they also made me a very aware mother to my 4 children and I speak to them openly and tell them no one has any rights to touch their body sexually or physically. I wish my parents loved me enough to put a stop to just one of my attackers. This story has made me feel so proud that I don't dwell on the past and that I am strong enough just to be sure these things don't happen to my children. Your stories will help girls and boys know that even through the worst abuse there is a piece of you inside that's called SURVIVAL and you can get through anything, just reach inside and pull it OUT:):):);)

Debra, I believe I speak for everyone when I say you are an inspiration to us all. Your courage shows us that things can get better even in the darkest of times. Just remember that you are a beautiful loved woman and that suicide will never be the answer to your problems. You make us recognize the values in life. It makes me think about how lucky I am to have parents who love me more than anything else. And by the way, those people who abuse their children should ROT IN HELL

I think that is worse than what i have been through and that im glad she got away i support the people that are abused because i have been abused myself
5:40am on Tuesday, February 14th, 2012
I cannot believe that her mother called her the devil's daughter. It makes me very angry that someone whould ever treat someone like that. Im glad that she is alive and helping other people out there who have to deal with things like this.

I sympthize with Debra cause I to was a child and the oldest of another sister, at the hands of monsters and wicked evil people. I have to disagree with the title " The worst case of child abuse" there are worse and some people no matter how they try can raise themselves above it,they are traped in a hell of being, they know no other than the pain and anger of it all. You are lucky someone pulled you up somewhere and you held on, some out there didn't have that and that is all they want in life. I guess they want to belong and a chance at what life is and can be.
There are worst cases of child abuse and there are deeper sacrifices made, to protect their children from the rage within a mother.

I am 18 and i have never been abuse nor been through anything like derba or her 2 sisters or anyone that left a comment talking about how they got abuse but i do know of people that have been abuse and have been through rough times in their life. i read all kinds of storys about abuse and i think to my self "how can people have kids and yet do such horrible things to such beautiful blessing" god gave u a gift a gift that u should hold on to forever and never hurt them. i dont think people sit and think before they act. i truly am sorry for what derba and her sisters went through. i really couldnt see it from her point of view. but i do know tha god was with her and her sisters the whole time. i dont know how she kept her pride and kept walking through the end of her horible life. i am thank ful that she and her sisters are ok. this story is amazing and i am glad that it is out here so people can see what happens to people when they sit and complain about their moms and dad being mean or they say they dont care bout their kids. everyone needs to sit back and look. u can either have mom and dad that cares for u, that looks after you, that wont harm you in any way. or u can have a mom and dad like derba and her sisters that beats and dont care about them at all. like everyone has said if u need help go ask. dont sit here and wait intil it too late. it never a wrong choice to ask for help.

I am so, so glad she survived. She shows that human beings are survivors. Her mother is the devil's child. I don't care what anyone says, but to abuse a child in such a way... It's impossible, unless *you* are the devil's child.
If you are a child going through child abuse, call for help. No matter how scared you are, how much you think you love your abusing parents, you do not deserve such beatings. Call for help!

2:43pm on Tuesday, December 20th, 2011
Debra, please continue to use your gifs and talents to bring National attention to CURRENT child abuse conditions. Statistics for child abuse are only getting worse. It is estimated 5 children in the US die every day from abuse and neglect. As a working mother of 2 (2 year old and 6 month old), I am trying to find a way to help with this cause, but finding the balance is difficult. Blessings to you and your incredible strength and courage. Pray for those of us who are also concerned that we find the outlets we can support and bring change to our children.

You say as a child that you were put on this earth with a purpose. You endured the unimaginable to be able to educate, mentor, for those going thru similar situations. Even though your mother abused you tried to kill your spirit and take your life, she couldnt, because what she failed to realize was that God had a purpose for you for beyond the abuse she could ever bear upon you. Though I have never been raised in a home where there was any type of abuse, your story truly inspired my,envy you ability to be so humble. This is not your story, it is your TESTIMONY, you made it!! May God continue to bless you, your husband and your children.

I am currently writting a paper for school about child abuse. However my paper I have limited to why people do not speak out before it is to late. It seems so many people knew of what was going on and could have prevented further damage but chose to stay quite. Why? That makes them just as sick in my book. Come on people take a stand save a child.
6:26pm on Wednesday, December 7th, 2011
I was an adopted daughter of a paranoid schizophrenic mother, and have seen what damage they cause in myself. I did not suffer the physical but psychological abuse at her hands. You are stronger now, and you will stay that way. I am sure as I have some events that you cannot handle, but generally you are a very strong person. But then I am sure you know this.

Omgosh..what a torment Debra has been through.. I pour out my heart to you.. It's just so crazy and sad how people are sometimes.. especially when a mother or father mistreats their children horribly. I'm just so thankful that the mother failed to kill Debra. I've heard many cases where the child would just die due to neglect/torments. Debra is a strong woman and has inspired many. Debra, your story has definitely made me realize how thankful I should be where I am right now. God bless.

This made me cry...i understand what you went through because i went through child abuse myself for 13 years and im only 20...i dont want to say about my story because its too long to explain...i was abused by my aunt...right now im in the process of seeing a psychiatrist because ive been having nightmares and screaming in my sleep and been crying almost everyday...the thing that bothers me is that she got away with everything and is living her life acting like nothing ever happened...i wish i could just do that as well but i cant

For the people that are saying that her mother was right about her beingt the devils daughter, grow up. You will never be able to know what she went through. Some people will never be able to comprehend it and I pray they won't be able to. Debra is such a strong woman, I am thankful I read this. I hope the people that say they are living something like this, that they will find the strength to leave.

I said this story was excellet because debra was amazing in her life and she showed how even after she was abused so bad she still kept her head up and lived day to day! when i was 5 i was adopted into a abusive home where i was thrown over baby gates and ripped acrost a house by my hair and told i was satans daughter because i had red hair. when i was little about 6 or 7 i was told i was a whore and a slut if i whore shorts or anything that a little girl would normaly wear when she is younge...and then molested by my adopted brother and his best friend for years!i was then almost sufficated to death because my adoptive mother said i was "raping her son" and that i was a whore tryin to hurt peoples familys. it is years later and the abuse still haunts me. i have found my biological sisters and parents and the rest of my family but still having the abuse in my head hurts and sometimes i just dont know what to do with it. debra your truly a inspiration!

None of my parents hit me but my dad does drink and occasionally hit my or abuse me but not as bad as some of you. I am so so SO sorry for all of you guys and You all will be in my prayers!!
My god son has been sexually, Physically, emotionally, and mentally abused so bad that it had to go to court and he is still having dreams about her but the one thing he tells his "Nemmy-Poo" is that he wants his mom back. You wanna know how old he is? FOUR! That sick woman treated her adorable little son like that.

Omigod, seriously? Debra is the devil daughter? Her mom made her eat poop and she poured hot things on Danielle and Debra's privates. That is just terrible, her mother deserves to burn in a fire or to be shot to death. That mother is seriosuly not even counted as a real person. She let her sons' eat oreos while her daughters' ate feces? FUCK HER!

This story is sooooo sad I can't stand it I don't even know y Im reading this stuff I'm only 13. I guess it's because it helps me learn about how mean people can be in this world. I always try to do my best when I fall and get hurt. But this is nothing like that this is real life real injuries and I guess that another reason that I read this is because I have a lot to say about it.
11:23am on Thursday, November 3rd, 2011
omg and i think its bad when parents have favourite :(
7:30am on Thursday, November 3rd, 2011
This whole story was so so touching to me i am a strong person that has been through alot in life but to hear how things were for you and yor sisters i would never think a mother can hurt something that they were blessed with because of a negative belief that she believe in....If i can say one thing I would say keep your heaad up always continue believing that things will alwayas get better and try to find a relationship with your sisters to be a family or make a family that was never there when you were young.... Bless You in Highly Favor

IRK in MN "mild cases" foes this seem like a mild case you jackass! People are abused each and everyday. Some not as bad others but it's not something you can ever forget! And the people that do "forget" just say try forget it's still locked up in their memories. The memorie of what happened and how they were abused. This women is very strong and will never forget!! This is one of the most horrifing thing I have read aside to A CHILD CALLED IT by Dave Pelzer.

This is the most Saddest thing i have EVER read. Debra, im sorry your mother was so sick & twisted in the head. im glad you survived though. you deffinetly didnt deserve the abuse you have to deal with in your younger life. I wish you could have had a BETTER, STRONGER, MORE LOVING, NOT SO MESSED UP sad excuse for a "mother". I dont understand how anybody could be so cruel and hatred to their young innocent child. but its okay debra, because karma will meet your mother and will BITE that bitch in the ass!!!

I am very proud. I am a girl and am glad that there are some women out there showing that us too(girls) can be strong. Most people say boys are stronger, boys handle worse things but HELLO! There is a creation called "girls"! You ever heard of it? Girls get more abuse than boys. People used to bury little infant girls ALIVE because they thought it was disgrace. OK. Think with me for a second. You want a boy. You kill all girls. HOW ARE YOU SUPPOSED TO GET BOYS WITHOUT GIRLS?! People say they may not be resist, but if you really think about them, they are. There are some girls out there that can do WAAAAY better than boys. Not to show off or anything, but me, me girl friend, and this boy in my class are the best in P.E. Can't the world see that girls are important. Think of mother nature for gods sake! Why did they call her MOTHER nature? I absolutely HATE boys. You know why, because my dad prefers my brotherS instead of me. The ONLY and OLDEST child/girl. Why? Because I am a girl.

I just wanted to say I wrote a blog about child abuse and you made #2 on my list of TOP TEN PEOPLE WHO DESERVE HEAVEN IF THEY'RE NOT THERE ALREADY
9:58am on Monday, October 17th, 2011
I too suffered similar abuse when younger. however, I was not fortunate enough to have the privilege of a foster home, which I would have fought for. Today I am very successful with 2 boys. Her story brought tears and the memories came flooding back - I know what she meant by "just one more day" and that voice ".. you will be alright.."
And like her, I will never loose the mental and physical scars I have today. I feel your strength.
8:19am on Tuesday, October 11th, 2011
This is awful. im so glad you said something about it and lived to tell it. You are not the devils daughter. That really pisses me off how she kept saying that, and after years of doing this to you, when you get the courage to call her, she has the nerve to say that? People are ridiculous.
5:57am on Friday, October 7th, 2011
this is so sad, that should never had happend.. i used this story on debra for my paper for school. i feel sorry for you and your younger sisters, and i wish you well. i plan to read all your books

WHAT THE HECK MAN DISTURBING AND DEPRESSING
1:30pm on Wednesday, October 5th, 2011
To IRK in MN. I don't know where you got your "treating" license, but not everyone forgets what happens to them. I was abused terribly as a very young child and I remember every beating that I got and everyday that I was locked away. Not everyone dissociates. Go back to college and maybe you'll learn that.
7:20am on Wednesday, October 5th, 2011
thats not right no one should have to go threw that!!!!those people should have beed done the way they did those girls..the shot between the freaken eyes..some for the guys who raped her!!
12:16pm on Tuesday, October 4th, 2011
I don't get it: if the abuse was so horrorific than how can she remember it? She would have dissociated, especially since it happened when she was a child. I've treated victims of very mild child abuse (e.g. minor physical abuse) who have no memory of most of the trauma. If this were true she would remember none of it and would certainty wouldn't be able to be so public about it.
Sounds like a publicity sham to me...
8:36am on Tuesday, October 4th, 2011
I can't believe you ever had to go through this. It brings tears to my eyes as I read it.. God made you surivive for a reason and that reason was to tell your story and bring light to your eyes. I am so glad you were able to overcome all of this and eb able to share your stories with the world. Imma have to check out your books. I am sorry you lost your son in that accident. Death may be a part of life but it isnt easy. But look who you have become a strong passoniate women. Thanks for sharing your story GOD BE WILL YOU!

Wow..so I'm doing a college english paper on personalities and how they developed over time by what were exposed to and endure over time and when i read this i couldnt believe you story. INCREDABLE!!! I'm sorry you had to go through that (which i'm sure you hear plunty) and to over come the situation. You are truely an inspiration to many, including me, to press on through the hard. Thank you for sharing your story with the world. God bless your soul =)

Please tell me you got proof of this story, because it seems like a knock off of David Pelzers A Child Called It. But if this is a proven story, then im very happy that theese girls got out.

3:37pm on Sunday, September 11th, 2011
This story made me cry a lot. I admit, I'm only 13, and I may be "too young to understand" but I do, and this is one of the worst stories ever. I wish I could go back in time and take her (Debra Luptak) and her siblings, (even the boys), to somewhere safe. I wish I could help someone one day, and save them from pain. I bet this story has inspired many people already. Thank you whoever wrote this story, and thank you Debra for surviving and inspiring me.
