My step-daughter and step-son were abused by their biological mother and her boyfriend. My husband now has custody of both of them and the courts and child services are hoping to have their mom stripped of her parental rights. Currently she can only see or contact them with supervision by child services. My step-daughter was molested by her mom's boyfriend. He is now in jail. They were both mentally and verbally abused. They both have a lot of anger inside them because of how they were raised. We feel very overwhelmed having to be the ones to help them heal from everything. We have to find a counselor for my step-daughter. It was court ordered. It wasn't ordered for my step-son but we are sure he needs to speak to a counselor to help deal with his anger because he takes it out on everyone in the house. We are in for a very rough road and I just wanted to know if there are others out there that have similar challenges with their children/step-children.
