I am the 19 year old sibling of 3 younger sisters and 2 younger half-siblings.
Their ages: 11, 9, and 7 year old sisters and 20 month old half-sister and 2 month old half-brother.
My parents are divorced, and, as of right now, my dad still gets to see my 3 sisters. (Note: My step-siblings are the children of my father and his girlfriend.) I moved out of my father's house when I was 16 and have not returned since.
My father's girlfriend is an ex-convict. She was in prison for assisting with the beating and rape of a pregnant woman. The woman's unborn child died as a result.
Also, she is an alcoholic and drug addict.
When I still lived at my father's house, I witnessed her get into a physical fight with her sister (right in front of my younger sisters). I had to bring them into my bedroom and shut the door just to keep them save from the violence.
Just a little background about what kind of person my siblings have to live with.
My father has been an alcoholic and drug addict for as long as I can remember (and remember, I'm 19 years old). He domestically abused my mother in front of me and my sisters before she finally left him. At one point, and I heard him say this myself, he threatened to kill us all if my mom tried to leave with me and sisters.
He drinks and drives with my siblings in the car with him (I have actually been in the car with him while he was drinking and driving when I was younger. And, he still continues to do so with my younger siblings in the car).
When I was younger, my father was a meth addict. It got so bad that he didn't have a job anymore. He would even bring me into the house with him that he smoked meth in.
And, now, he is doing methamphetamine drugs again.
My sisters have said that they "saw dad buy pills from people", "saw dad get white powder from people", and "saw dad burn the bottoms of spoons, smoke what was in the spoon, and pass it around to people".
When my sisters have told my father that they were hungry, he told them "they can starve for all he cares".
My sisters have been in the car with him and someone was (apparently) driving "too slow" in front of him. He pulled over, had the guy pull over, and beat him. All for "driving too slow". My sisters witnessed all of this.
As horrible as all of this is that I have already told you, it is actually not my main concern that I have for my siblings.
My father sexually abused me when I was younger.
I have had repressed memories of this and am just recently starting to remember it.
I was around the age 6-7.
I cannot bear the thought of something like that happening to any of my siblings.
Someone, please help keep my sisters away from him before something happens to them like it did to me. Please.
I ask each and every person who is reading this to please spread the word. I need as much help as I can possibly get. Please share this on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, your blog, online forums, your email contacts, anyone. Please.
