A Broken Childhood

A Broken Childhood

2020-06-1136:43

Imagine a childhood where the child lives in absolute fear of their biological parents. Where each day, that child would pray for an uneventful time and protection from their guardian. That was the very life of Dr. Lydia Taiwo. She writes about her life in her book, A Broken Childhood, published by Austin Macauley Pubishers. Lydia is a survivor of horrific, grievous bodily harm and child abuse. She has over sixty scars all over her body. There are six on her face and eight on her head which are visible to the naked eye, all at the hands of her parents, most especially her mother.  Though the physical scars remain, Lydia has been resilient and been able to forgive her parents and move on with her life. She does not consider herself a victim but a victor. "Having suffered abuse doesn't mean you have to be an abuser yourself" is her motto.  Join us on this episode to discuss what it really means to forgive.
