My Story of 25 years in 2 catholic church orphanages. The abuse, the sexual abuse and the on going abuse I have gone through, while seeking Justice from the catholic church since 1997. I have also in my book 5 other ladies who had told me their sorties which read like horror stories from the evil times and a man, whose mother was raped by a priest, Peter, who still does not know who his father is, nor does he know, where he was born in Christchurch.

His mother ended up at the Magdalene laundry at Mount Magdala Christchurch New Zealand for 5 years, the Church had already taken little baby Peter away from her, he was never to see his mother again, until he found her, some years before she pass away. by that time, Peter was a grand father himself, with questions, his grand children have asked, during the many years. Who and where is our great grand dad?? a question all of us have asked over the many years. Where and who are our parents??

Conceived out of wedlock, Ann was just two months old when placed in the care of a Catholic orphanage. Ann's mother was raped at 15years old. From the beginning, Ann was taught her mother was sinful and that Ann would be too, unless the devil was beaten from her soul. Ann was sexually abused from an early age and forced to work long hours on the orphanage farm.

At night, three nuns performed the grisly ritual of stripping her naked, tying her to the four posts of a bed and savagely attacking her with belts, hoops and sticks.

It would take more than sadistic nuns to quell Ann irrepressible spirit, however, and in the course of her virtual enslavement, she acquired the qualities of generosity, kindness and resilience.

'Say Sorry' documents the 19 years of abuse inflicted on Ann and the ongoing consequences. It is also the story of her battle to get authorities within the Catholic Church to accept responsibility for the past institutionalised abuse of young people in its care, and to admit - unconditionally - that there was wrong doing.

The draw-dropping account ends with an expose on sexual abuse by Father Tom Doyle, JDC, DADC, a former Canon lawyer for the Vatican Embassy in Washington. Of Ann's harrowing experience at the hands of Catholic clergy, he says it's possibly the most brutal he's ever encountered.

Can a child develop healthy attitudes toward others if she is stripped naked, then tied to her bed, as punishment for bet-wetting? Or for nothing at all.

"It's hard when that's been the pattern of your life. It's hard to believe those patterns have been broken." It 's hard to let go of the fear for people. It's hard for me, to see me as not being, what the nuns told me I was, useless, no good, dumb, stupid. Verbal Abuse hurts too, the put downs.
