CeeCee James has written a series of memoirs that you will never be able to forget. Absolutely. Guaranteed.
During her interview, I was at a loss for words. I have heard many stories of abuse but I never heard one as intense as CeeCee's. She is an incredibly gentle, warm woman who survived horrendous pain, neglect and hatred by her mother.
Listening to her story, you will be drawn to tears and anger as you hear CeeCee share how the only touch she had ever known as a child was one of pain.
At TWO WEEKS old, her father burned CeeCee's face and body with an iron. Her mother refused to feed or change CeeCee's diapers because she did not want to be manipulated by a baby's cries. She wanted to teach her NOT to cry. This was only the beginning of a lifetime of trauma.
CeeCee never remembers a time as a child when she was not hungry....or cold.....or alone.....or hated.
Yet, all CeeCee ever wanted was love. Even as a toddler she worked hard to please her mother, hoping for one gentle touch or one kind word. She never got one!
CeeCee holds no animosity. No bitterness. No unforgiveness. No blame. Instead, she understands the true necessity to forgive and move forward. She is not looking for sympathy and her humility is unique, feeling that many others may have suffered more. She wants people to understand how to let go of their past and hang onto hope -- the only thread to survival.
