My little girl told me that her dad(my husband at the time) that he had touched her with his finger and his peinis. Now that we are awaiting trial I often wonder what this process will do to her psychology. I also often wonder about the future. How will this affect her when she is old enough to have a relationship. Will the physical damage to her vaginal area lead to problems? How do you move forward and not want to shelter your children from everyone. I hate the feeling I get when she talks about her father. I try not to become overwhelmed with hate because I know how it can consume your life. I'd you have any advice please share. I'm lost and hurt for my little girl. I will never understand how someone can hurt something so precious

No problem :)
I wish I could be more of a help to you though.

I forgot to mention the part where you said " How do you move forward and not want to shelter your children from everyone." Even though I am not in the situation you are in, I COMPLETELY know what you mean. We want to protect our children from every little thing out there but even then we can't do it forever so all you can do is continue to guide her on the right path and teach her to make smart choices in life and how to avoid bad situations and the rest of the book of life is hers to write.

Has she been getting therapy since he has touched her? Because it will have an effect on her psychologically... The sooner you two get help the sooner you will be able to move forward in life. At least she has mom by her side. Good luck!
