I remember it was close to Christmas and I had preyed to God for months and months every night to please do something about my abusive father as he had threatened to kill my mother and if it wasn't for my quick thinking she would be dead. Anyway, I was 8 years old and angry at God for giving me such a father. I went to bed praying and wishing for a better father and a barbie bus and barbies for Christmas. I was awoken by a very dull humming noise, although when I awoke I could not hear it at all. I sat bolt upright and there right outside my window was a huge disc shaped object hovering very low. The middle bit where all the windows were seemed to revolve around and I could see people walking around inside. My first reaction was one of immediate fear and then an overwhelming sense of love and security surrounded me and moments later I found myself at the back door trying to find the key to get out and into the backyard to go with them. I actually had the key in the door and the door open when a voice inside my head told me to stop for the sake of my mother. You see she slept in my room as my father used to rape her if she slept in the same bed and I was worried if I was gone in the morning she would get the blame and the beating for it. I closed the door and locked it and raced back to my room to find the craft still in the same position and when I looked out the window at it I could hear them communicating with me in their mind saying don't be frightened we won't hurt you. Come with us. To this I told them that I was afraid for my mother and I said I wanted to get married and have children first and they said that they would come back for me one day. The disc shaped object lifted slightly and noislessly before moving towards the mountains where it seemed to move rapidly and dart sideways. I tried to wake mum to tell her but I couldn't wake her,which is unusual as she is a super light sleeper. I told my sister 15 years later and a few people but no-one really believed me except my sister, and my husband. There were red lights on the underside of the craft and the craft itself was a metallic white in colour.
