Thanks for the update- I've been wondering how things were going for your family. I think the best way to deal with your guilt is to forgive yourself for being human. As much as we may like to be able to see in other people's minds and hearts, we can't. You're doing the right thing by getting dd help and more importantly, using the legal system. While you may feel some guilt (definetly not justified!) about dd, think of all the other little girls out there you have saved. Your dd will heal and thank you for handling the situation with the tenacity and grace you did.
