I am joining Circle of Moms because I need help. I'm a mom, I'm a professional, I'm a wife, I'm lots of things but mostly right now I'm the mother of a child who was sexually abused by her uncle when she was 14. Tomorrow we will go to court and I will stand up and speak on behalf of my daughter and our family before they decide on a sentence for my brother. I thought I would feel better once he pled guilty but it was at that time that I found out that on top of sodomizing my baby, he video taped it. Tomorrow I send my brother to jail. Does he deserve it? YES! Do I regret calling the police? Not even for a second. But I don't feel better.
My daughter lost everything, her childhood, her school, her health, everything. We all lost half of my family that took the other side, I lost faith in people and have very few friends now. Mostly we lost security, none of us will ever feel safe again. So why don't I feel better knowing that he goes to jail tomorrow???
I guess I just need a group of people to support me on this so I'm coming to this place for help. Moms are the only ones who can understand what I'm going through. Can anyone tell me when the pain will let go of my heart?
