Back Again

Once again, I've come back to this blog as part of a way of circling around again on my healing.

Since I last posted, we've had a little one.  I'll call the kiddo "T" here.  J and I couldn't be more thrilled to be parents.  Our journey to parenthood was relatively easy, considering our age and some biological challenges.  We don't take our ability to parent lightly and know that we are fortunate in more ways than we can count.

The blessings of parenting come with challenges for everyone.  I know that my challenges/struggles are not only the typical, but are connected to being a survivor.  My dad began abusing me when I was two years old, T's current age.   While I can't specifically identify ways that this is impacting me and my parenting now that it wasn't when T was born, I'm aware that there is likely an impact.  What do you think? What advice can you share?

Thanks for reading after so much time away.

Your sister survivor,

Hi Leah,

I am urgently trying to get in touch with the contributors of the blog "Jewish Survivors of Sexual Violence Speak Out".

The contributors are listed as "Dina Tamar, frumguy, Jewish Survivors, Mara and daf". Are you any of these people or can you direct me to any of these people?

Thank you.

Kind regards,
Tamara Rabadi
