Did You Ever Love Me?

Abused by the ones who were supposed to keep her safe




The moving true story of a young girl, sexually abused by her father and her journey to move forward from the trauma of her past

How do you stop your past from determining your future?

“It’s what daddies do with their little girls,” he explains, “every little girl does it. But it’s a secret, and you must not talk about it.”

Cassie was too young to remember when her father started abusing her, but she remembers how unclean it made her feel. When she got married at sixteen and had a family of her own, she thought she’d finally escaped his clutches, but he found a way to make sure she could never move on. Turning to drink to cope, Cassie’s babies were taken into care and her husband left her. Now would begin the biggest challenge of her life: winning her children back and working to eclipse the pain of the past.

This is the heartbreaking true story of a little girl that just wanted to be loved.
