“I felt like I was on pause my whole childhood.”

In October, 2011, two sisters, ages 14 and 15, came to StoryCorps to remember confiding in each other about being sexually abused.

The girls’ abuser was their uncle and part-time caretaker.

They recorded this conversation just 10 days after he was found guilty of sexual assault. Their names are withheld to respect their privacy.
