Karen Dionne

“There's a stigma to being the offspring of a kidnapper, rapist, and murderer that's hard to shake. If people think I'm exaggerating, they should think about this: Would they have welcomed me into their home knowing who my father was and what he did to my mother? Let me be friends with their sons and daughters? Trusted me to babysit their children? Even if someone says yes to any of these, I'll bet they hesitated before they did.”
