It was supposed to be the best time of my life! It happened on December 23,2000 I had just became a Mom of a beautiful baby boy so I was happy and in love. But that day everything change.
I decided to go out that night but came home early my father and his friends use to play cards in my living room. ( I was living next door to my parents) I was living in a small two bedroom house my fiance at the time was in the U.S., so it was just the baby and I. When my dad was done playing as usual he asked me to close the door because he was leaving I did but what I didn’t do was to check the baby’s room and I left a window open. The baby was sleeping with me on my bed. It was around 3:00 am when I felt something cold on my neck and then someone trying to wake me up. When I opened my eyes I thought to my self ok the guys are leaving gotta close the door. But then I saw the knife.
I was confused at first, but then he put his hand on my lips and asked me to be quiet. He demanded my money and jewelry. I gave him everything. I remember being really scared and I was begging him no to hurt me. After he robbed me, he ask me to take off my clothes. When I refuse he put the knife on my baby’s neck and told me that if didn’t do what I was told he was going to kill my baby. So I did. I remember him putting the knife down to take off his pants, I was just looking a it wanting to grab it, but I was so afraid. It kills me to this day that I had the opportunity to do something and I couldn’t. My rapist was never caught.
