A heart-rending look into the sex-trafficking industry.
Forgive Me, Nadia is an eye-opening, horrifically brutal account of one girl’s life. Natalia was raised in a small village outside Moscow, and then just before her 14th birthday, her alcoholic parents sold her to a sex-trafficking organisation in Moscow, her price, ten bottles of vodka!
A natural beauty, had things been different Natalia could have become a model or movie star. However this is not to be her fate, instead when we meet her for the first time she is just seventeen, locked in a filthy room, fed and watered when her pimp decides, and she is about to have a baby.
Alone Natalia brings her precious daughter into the world, and with her mothering instincts naturally aroused she falls in love with her new-born, whom she calls Nadia. Briefly she dreams of doing the normal mother-daughter things with her as she grows up, however, these dreams are quickly and cruelly dashed when Madam Liz, the organisations overseer of the ‘working girls’ arrives, and announces that the baby is to be got rid of.
Heart-broken Natalia begs Madam Liz for mercy, and pleads for her infant’s life. Finally, she is offered a solution, it breaks her heart, but she knows that if her daughter is to stand a chance she must agree to leave her in a dumpster, and to an unknown fate.
From then on life has other cruel cards to deal Natalia, and it is incredible that one young woman could suffer so much hardship and sorrow, through no fault of her own. However, Natalia’s strong faith, kind heart and compassion to others is a true inspiration, and it is heart-warming to read how she transforms the lives and futures of those who know her with the beauty of her spirit.
Unfortunately it is a horrific fact that sex-slave trafficking is still going on in Moscow, and throughout the world, and very young children are sold and stolen to provide sexual gratification for cruel and perverted adults.
This story brings the plight of one of these children to the attention of its reader. Natalia’s life and what happens next in Nadia’s makes compelling reading.
The author’s attention to detail about the life of Natalia both as a sex slave and afterwards makes parts of it heart-breaking. However, perhaps the most shocking thing is that it is based on a true story, somewhere out there this woman exists…
