Our Concrete Angels

Hello, my name is Kathy Brown Ballard. I'm, 52 years old and I am a product of child abuse. There I've said it! I have done what society expects of me. Stand up admit who I am and go on with my life. Well, you see it doesn't work like that with an abused child. By telling a person who has survived child abuse, and by survived I mean lived to talk about it, you are reiterating how they already feel, the abuse I received was my fault . Admitting to the pain and heartache I was subjected to as a child wasn't my problem. I am under no illusions of what happened to me. No my guilt was shame, because it was considered incest and I still love the ones that put me through it, voluntarily or by turning their heads. This is why I wrote my book. It helped me to understand the why of it all. Not from adults who were involved they're still in denial. No, I got the answer from deep within me. Now I will take you on that journey. No, it won't be easy, as a matter of fact at times it will be our worst nightmare. I will promise you this though, rather you have been abused or not this journey we are taking together will bring you to your knees. It will give you a whole new insight on the mind of a child who has gone through the horrors of abuse. How they survive it, but more importantly why they have to forgive the person who committed this act before they can forgive themselves.

About the Author

I was born in 1953 in Dallas, Texas at a time when things that happened in the family stayed in the family. Keeping your mouth shut, or should I say keeping secrets were part of your legacy. This was not only a mandate by your parents, but also a must to fit into Society. This was my world as a child. At the age of seventeen I married the most wonderful man in the world. Thirty-four years later we are still truly in love. Out of that love we produced threebeautiful children. In turn they blessed us with nine healthy and robust grandchildren. My husband and I have now retired to Mead, Oklahoma on the quiet shores od Lake Texoma. The one important thing that you should know about me is that I walk with God and thank him everyday for all I have been blessed with. I wouldn't change a single day in my life, from birth through today. Yes, thank God we have all come out of our closets. Today we are not only taught by our parents to speak when we've been hurt, but we are encouraged and protected by Society when we do.
