Yesterday, less than 24 hoursago., my 22-year-old daughter, Bailey Lane, was sexually assaulted after she called for a maintenance man to repair her air-conditioner.
I dont know if she would have ever told me except for when I called her, she couldn't hide that something bad happened, she couldn't even speak, or breathe. It's like I watched a part of her die. I had to tell her to take deep breaths for nearly ten minutes, she repeated herself, "i am so stupid" over, and over.
As mothers, we have an oath to show our children how to behave, how to be kind, how to stand up for themselves, and my daughter knows all to well about my own tragic resume of sexual trauma. I've shown her all I know and protected her to a fault her entire life.
We called the police together, I was on video messenger as she told this gruesome account, I was with her telling her how brave she is. And when they called her down to tell her there was no charges being filed; whatever little was left of her broke again.
I've started a fundraiser on my website. Please help me relocate her to another place, give her good counseling, and give me the ability to fight for her. I am going to show her the actions no one took for me. I am gathering a petition, I am asking for your help.
He didn't even lose his job.
I'm sorry but, no. This is not what happens to my daughter. She didn't deserve it to happen like this. Not #hertoo I called the main office, Maria told me that the name of the man who assaulted my daughter "was none of my concern". Bailey doesn't even know his name. Maybe its better that way. I asked his name for the police report, she told me the police weren't necessary that they are handling it internally.
The $##$ you are. Then she hung up on me.
She clearly has no idea what her daughter's face looks like before she has had a chance to shower her attack off. But. I do. It is shuttering grief.
I've placed an area on my website where you can send Bailey a message, she is not well. Please write her. Please help me with her. She needs us. She is in Texas, I am in New york, she is sitting on the couch she was held captive on. Ughhhh. Why. All I can do is remind her that God is at work. Show up. Please.
Thank you for whoever will show up.
With all our prayers for Bailey Lane,
love your family..
