After realizing she would never be able to heal herself without telling the truth about her abuse to her mother, she penned a letter in 1992 when she was in her 20s.

Around that period, her mother was voicing sympathy for a character in a story who was sexually abused by her stepfather.

Unfortunately, her siblings and parents were engulfed in their busy lives while she was left alone to deal with her incurable wounds. She eventually distanced herself from her family in 2002.

By the time she was 25, she could not continue her life properly. However, she was learning through therapy sessions that healing is real and was beginning to understand that it wasn’t her fault.

Andrea Robin Skinner alleged that her stepfather, Gerald Fremlin, s*xually abused her as a child in 1976 when she was nine years old at her mother’s home in Clinton, Ontario.

In 2005, Fremlin, 80, was charged with indecent assault against Skinner and pleaded guilty. He received a suspended sentence and two years’ probation.

After the abuse, while growing up as a teenager, she developed bulimia, insomnia, and migraines, which later developed into a chronic, debilitating condition that continues to the present day.

For a long time, Andrea remained silent on her mo*estation by her stepfather because of her mother’s fame.
