I tried to pm you, but it wouldn't go through.
I actually want to thank you...sounds weird, I know....I was molested when I was 4 a number of times by a 15/16 year old male babysitter and when I finally told my mom, though she believed me, when he said nothing happened she dropped the whole issue, as though it never happened. She never talked to me about it, never pressed charges, and I grew up thinking I was horrible and shameful and dirty my entire life and also believing that is wasn't ok to talk about...well, I just finished up 6 years of therapy. I remember asking my therapist once if I would have been better if I had therapy when I was little and he said things would have turned out better if my mom had thought about my feelings rather than her own (basically she was too afraid, feeling guilty etc. to notice that I was feeling a lot too)..
anyway, I could write a book, but I want to thank you for everything you are doing for your little girl....what an amazing mom you are (I'm totally sobbing right now, but in a good way)...
peace to you on this mother's day.
