We adopted two siblings in February. We were aware of the history of physical abuse and neglect but now my son revealed he was sexually abused by his biological father and "uncle" and then my daughter revealed a little bit of sexual abuse by biological father and "uncle". I know there is much more to reveal but because of the justice system I am not allowed to talk about with my kids until forensics interviews them. I don't want them to think that I don't care, want to hear about it, or help them but I am limited. I tried to explain this but to a 5 and 7 year old it probably seems like I am abandoning them like everyone else. Now my doctor is acting so mean to me. If they only knew how much it hurts me that I can't hold conversations with them right now and all that I am trying to do. Most important thing though was for the county to come and make sure that my toilets flush and I have running water! What a joke.. I had them do that weekly for about 8 months until we adopted them. They are worried about this but the predator can be hurting other kids.
