Have you ever had a child that was concieved through...force? adult content

I don't want to say rape because it's just an awful word. But I always wonder about the victims who ended up having a child and what they felt for their kid.

  • First you would have defined what a father is. The man who showed you love, feed you and rise you is your father.

  • I am a child of rape. My mother loved me very much. She eventually married a man who became my father. Wehn I was old enough to ask about m y 'real father' My mother told me that he was not a nice man, he made very bad decisions with his life and that is why he was not a part of mine. I later learned as a teen she did not even know his name nor was he ever caught. I still to this day hate that man for hurting my mom but at the same time I am thankful for my own existence. My mom always told me I was her special gift and I was the one perfect thing that came from meeting such a bad man.

  • I was date raped at 19 years old and came up pregnant. I had my son and I love him more than I could ever imagine, he's my whole world. He's 7 now and when he asks why he doesn't have a father we explain to him that all families are different and some kids don't have daddies and some kids don't have mommies but we make due with what we have. When he gets older I probably won't tell him he's a child of rape I'll just explain to him that mommy was really young and I did some things I'm not proud of but if I had to go back and do it all over again because I have the greatest thing in the son.

  • i applaud those of you who raised your children that came from those circumstances. that is a true mother; loving your child no matter what. i believe that every child is a gift from God.
