Teri says her uncle, Richard Stone, molested her for three years, starting when she was 5 years old. She remembers the abuse in heartbreaking detail—from the parking lot she says he'd drive her to, to the color of the car's upholstery, to "what his penis looked like."

"I've never had repressed memories," Teri says. "There's nothing that I haven't lived with every single day."

Teri says she remembers feeling "a lot of shame" for knowing what would happen when she would get in the car with her uncle, and for choosing to get in anyway. "I guess I wanted that special attention. That's part of the horror and the blame of the victim," she says. "You're seduced to believe you are responsible for it."
