**Disclaimer: This episode may not be suitable for children, or some adults, as molestation is the main topic discussed.**
In this episode of the Nacho Kids Podcast, Lori and David, co-founders of Nacho Kids, interview a stepdaughter from Illinois. “Stepdaughter” became a stepkid at 18 months old. She had two older stepbrothers. One of which molested her from the age of eight years old until around the age of 14 years old. She never told her dad about the molestation, but recently confided in her mom. As you can imagine, the stepdaughter’s childhood was taken from her because of the actions of her stepbrother. Stepdaughter still lives with her dad and stepmom, so, unfortunately, she still sees her abuser at times. Not too long ago, the stepbrother decided to ask her if she remembered “how much fun they had as kids” and would she want to do it again. We were shocked, and proud, to learn that stepdaughter didn’t believe this most recent unpleasant encounter with the stepbrother was a set back in the progress she had previously made in therapy. This was a very touching interview with stepdaughter. It was so great to hear her be able to laugh and cut up with us despite the struggles she’s endured. In fact, I don’t know that we have ever laughed so much with a guest. We thank her for sharing her story with us and you, and we will continue to cheer her own as she attempts to heal from this horrible experience.

- Being treated differently than the other kids
