I think my 4yo was sexually abused UPDATE - Page 8

post #141 of 163
I'm still praying for you and your family, especially your daughter. I have been quite plagued by having read your post. Something came to mind as I was thinking of you the other day. You had said that you didn't know when this person may have had the opportunity to do this. Do you have a calendar or day timer? Sometimes I jot down insignificant things that jog my memory about things later when I go back through. That might help you to find a time when this could have happened. I've been praying lately a lot for your hubby. Hope he is better able too work through this. Sending you lots of love.

And yes, this man will meet his maker one day.

Thank you so much, OP for telling us this story. It gives me a lot to think about. Looking back on it, were there any signs of abuse before your daughter told you what was going on? I always have assumed my kids are safe, but of course they go to neighbors' houses to play. I will read those books you recommended.

You've heard this many times on this thread, but I am in awe of how well you are handling this and what good decisions you are making. Your daughter is so very lucky that you are her mom.

I hope (but seriously doubt) that A and J's children are o.k. and if they are not that help is on the way. I'm sure that the mom has been living in denial for years. In the long run, you are helping this family as much as your own.

: Worth checking into. If you're advised not to talk about it online, PM a mod and ask them to remove this thread. (I mention this in the unlikely event that you weren't aware you could do that )


You are doing the right thing.

Kinda strange to comment right after being quoted, but I wanted to let you know I'm still thinking of your family, and sending positive vibes for healing and justice. Hope you're making forward progress.

I can't believe what happened to your precious sweet little girl. How can people do stuff like this to children? I don't understand. You are doing an amazing job handling this situation.

Just read this whole thread. My heart goes out to you. I am so glad your dd has you for a mama, handling this so lovingly and with such care. It is so shocking to read all the things that have happened to people even though I know they do. And I am just so impressed with you and deeply touched--especially by moving in this stressful time to help her feel safe. Many blessings to you and your family.

I hope things are going well for you all...your experience has reminded me why I am so protective of my children and to tighten back up, bc I've been a bit more lax lately!!! to you all!

I think your family is very strong for handling this as well as you have. And as QUICKLY! Time is definitely of the essence, and will aid your dd's recovery process. I'm glad you chose to move as quickly as you have, listening to your dd's feelings. You are an AWESOME mama! We are truely tested during tough times, and you are proving your strength. Rock on!!

I've been so busy lately that I haven't had a chance to stop in. I just wanted to let you know that you and your family are in my thoughts daily. If you can't talk about it anymore, please let us know. You have lots of people praying for you.

I can't say it better than lawgrrl. What a horrible, horrible thing to happen to your beautiful baby girl. But I am so glad for her that she has you for a mom and your DH as a Dad.

Take care.
