Description:

Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "I despise you Judith Ann, I curse the day we adopted you and your brother! We owe you nothing because you are nothing!" said Mother as saliva pooled at the corners of her mouth. She began to recklessly punch her daughter about the head and face, that unprovoked outburst resulted from nothing other than seeing her 7 year old daughter in 'her home.' "Go ahead say it Judith Ann" and with that my clue was given, "I know Mother, I know I deserve nothing because I am nothing, and I am worth even less then that." I said it as vehemently as one tells a child they're loved. My older adopted brother Jimmy was in for it next. Although Mother never gave it to him in quite the same way, it didn't mean that Jim was off the hook. For that very same evening Father would begin his violent, alcohol induced rages that may very well leave him slumped and bleeding in the corner of his bedroom. That was only the beginning of that evening's terror because on many nights, Father would come to me next. As the story continues, Mother did go on to have 2 biological children, her beloved son and daughter. The doctor's admonition that conception would never occur, was certainly incorrect. Jim and I spent a lifetime paying for that transgression. Judy's physical damage required over ten surgeries to repair 'years old' bodily damage, discovered in early adulthood where doctor upon doctor inquired, "how did this happen to you, who did this to you?" Unfortunately for Jimmy, a once bright and gifted straight A student, life since age 18 has him confined to mental facilities/ group home settings, never having the ability to live on his own. This is due to Jim's propensity toward violent outbursts, copying the abhorrent behavior Father unleashed at him for some eighteen years. "Not One of Them" A Story of Adoption, Alcoholism & Abuse takes the reader to a place - a life, that no one would ever believe exists in a free country. Bookseller Inventory #

Book Description Paperback. Book Condition: New. Paperback. 236 pages. I despise you Judith Ann, I curse the day we adopted you and your brother! We owe you nothing because you are nothing, said Mother as saliva pooled at the corners of her mouth. She began to recklessly punch her daughter about the face and head, that unprovoked outburst, resulted from nothing other than seeing her young 7 year old daughter in her home. Exasperated as Mother was almost every single day. Go ahead say it Judith Ann, and with that my clue was given, I know Mother, I know I deserve nothing because I am nothing, and I am worth even less than that. I said it as vehemently as one tells a child theyre loved. My older adopted brother Jimmy, was in for it next. Although Mother never quite gave it to him in the same way. That didnt mean Jim was off the hook, for that same evening Father would begin his violent alcohol induced rages that may land him bleeding and slumped in the corner of his own bedroom. That was only the beginning of that evenings terror because on many nights, Father would come to me next. . . This was our life, for no more than after we were adopted as mere babies, Mother went on to have two biological children, her beloved son and daughter. The doctors admonition that conception would never occur, was certainly incorrect. Jim and I spent a lifetime paying for that physicians transgression. Judys physical damage required over 10 surgeries to repair years old bodily damage discovered in early adulthood where doctor upon doctor inquired, how did this happen, who did this to you! Unfortunately for Jimmy, a once bright and gifted straight A student, life since age 18 has him confined to mental facilities group home settings, never having the ability to live on his own. This is due to Jims violent propensity to lash out in society, copying the abhorrent behavior Father unleashed at him for some thirteen plus years. If the emotional and physical torture went on through the childrens late teenage years, that would be tragic enough! However, what sets this story apart is Mother and Fathers extreme self-righteous belief that in exchange for adopting them, a lifetime of repayment is required. Well into adulthood, with a cult like prevailing attitude Judy seeks to constantly pay them back- physically, emotionally and monetarily. Yet it is never enough as her own Mother seeks to destroy her oldest daughters life. For these two children were despised, hated and came close to death throughout their lifetime, too many times to recall. For in this story- like no other out there, the age of adult children make no matter when parents want pay back for legally adopting. For nowhere will one find such a shocking look at an unbelievable attempt at survival. Not One of Them: A story of Adoption, Alcoholism and Abuse is the chilling true story of Judy Baldaccini, a little girl who went through hell, and not only survived, but became a stronger person because of it.
