Justin A
child with learning disabilities who has been sexually molested & now has repeated the act


Justin has severe learning disabilities , has been ridiculed by his peers , and was sexually molested by a teacher while at camp.He has now abused another child.


My son is 13 years old. Justin has learning disabilities. He has trouble getting along with other children. He has been ridiculed and made fun of all of his life. I recently found out that he was sexually molested by a teacher at camp around the age of six.Now he has molested another child in the same way he was molested. The therapist says that he was reinacting what was done to him years ago. He doesnt seem to understand the severity of his actions or the consiquences. I have no one I can talk too because this subject is so taboo and I feel such shame over what my child has done to another smaller child.
It seems that Justin has never been given a chance in life. His self esteem is down to nothing. He has just about given up.I want him to get help and understanding. We are also trying to get him into a private school with other children like him and need prayer for finances.($6200/year) Thank you all and may God bless you.

Hello alone and in the dark. im Sierra from new mexico. i to was molested at a young rip age of 7 till i was 13 i also molested when i was 8. i had to work things out in my head i was abused mentally and verbally and physcially and even in school it was hard from all the bulling i was getting and i had no one to talk to about it. i never told my family or friends what was going on behind close doors. i keep everything inside and when i would bath i would get to dolls and have them do sexual things to them. when i was younger. you are very brave and have lots of courage to come out and state what you did. and yes not to many ppl would understand unless they walked in your sons shoes. he has been stripped of his childhood. i can understand why he feels like an outcast in this great big world we live in he trusted someone when he was young and they betrayed that trust and now it might be hard for him to trust anyone. talk to him try to help him build his self esteem back up. Praise him when he has done something really great or not so great, i just went to my therpist today and God lead me here to you. i told my therpist what i went througt as a child and how good it felt and how i wanted more. well its nothing for me or your son to be ashamed of we didnt do this to ourselfs and you didnt do it to him either thats the important thing to remember. It happen now what can you do to help, praise him, love him, spend more time with him, encougare him to do something he enjoys doing that he may be doing now paiting or coloring or something. maybe he enjoys history or math or something you seem to have a comp help learn how to look up things that can help him. he needs to talk he may repeat the same things over and over again let him. thats therpy in itself. and God will answer your prayers he will and hell help your son to and i believe that he will grow to be a good man. just believe and put your trust in the Lord Jesus. i have prayed for you and your son and i prayed for the family of the other child. God will work things out...trust if you want to talk more just message me at mystic_blu_dolfin@comcast.net my prayers are with you

Dear Mother of Justin,
I understand how you feel. This exact same thing happened to my learning disabled son too. Keep telling Justin that you love him and that your love for him is unconditional. Therapy is a very important healing step for Justin and you. Don't blame yourself. Had you known that he had been sexually abused himself. I'm sure that you would have gotten help for him right away. I hope that the teacher at camp has been turned into the authorities. Make sure you have a good attorney for Justin. All of the states have special school funding for special education children. In Michigan it's Section 501 or 502. Also look up disability advocates on the interent. It's very important to ask Justin if he wants to be hugged or kissed. Before you hug or kiss him. This is important part of his healing if everybody would ask Justin his permisssion before they touch him to hug him or kiss him in any proper way. This gives Justin the feeling that he is in control of his body and nobody else.Keep telling him what a wonderful teenager he is. Praise all of his accomplisments. Spend as much quality time with him that you can. The most important part I found also is try to keep him busy so that he doesn't have to think about the situation. I understand how mind bolging this is to you. Don't try to figure out how you could have prevented this from happening or blame yourself for it. If you yourself have counsling too. That would probably be another bonus and other famly members. I felt a great deal of rage inside of me when this happen to my son.
Dear Lord and Heavenly Father, Please be with Justin and his mom and family members as they go through this difficult time. Please give them peace, joy happiness, guidices. Show them endless love and understanding. Only bring truling Christian people in there life to help them to get through this overwhelming situation. As your word says "this to will pass" Amen In Jesus name.

I pray that Justin finds the guidance that he needs right now. Coming from someone who has been through a similar situation, I can understand how hard this is for you, and your family. I pray that Justin has the strength to truly understand what he has done, but more importantly the strength to forgive himself for it. I pray that he be able to forgive the poor sick person that did that same horrid act to him, and I pray that he be able to be strong in the love of his parents and the love of God, that he find the help he needs from those around him, but that he also listens to the guidance within himself. Regardless of what many say, I do not believe that we are born sinners, nor do I believe that an act that we are ashamed of is a sin. I know that this is hard to come to terms with, but Justin is not a bad person, he is a child in need of help, and in need of love, he is not a sinner, or an evil person...he is truly good. And a perfect expression of spirit. He is whole and perfect, and will grow up to lead a truly blessed life. He is a blessing to this world. And I know that as he works through this experiance he will grow in his faith, and be able to help others going through similar situations.
We release this prayer into our wonderful, perfect universe, knowing that it is already so, and giving thanks for the opportunities that this experience will bring Justin and his family. And so it is!

I have worked professionally with dozens of boys like Justin and health and healing are not only possible but happen daily. Do not believe those who offer hopelessness in this trouble. I was abused as well. My prayer for you is this: You are our precious child. You are loved and beloved. You are worthy and perfect in the sight of God. The Son who suffered for us all sends comfort to you. Trust and allow your family to take care of you. May your heart and mind be free. In the name of Jesus you are blessed. Amen
