My daughter told me 4 years ago that my ex husband her step father at the time abused her from the age of 9 years old until 14 .He is now in prison serving a long sentence.my 2 sons have struggled to come to terms with what has happened.it is their father who done this.i am pleased my family are reunited at last .my family were apart for a long time because my sons were in denial for a while.my daughter is so strong and I am very proud of her.she went through 2 court trials to get justice.i had to have counselling because as a mother I felt guilty .I now know that is crazy because I knew nothing .I Was working nights at the time trying to earn some money for my family.now I feel I can never trust another man to be in my life.has anyone else felt like I am feeling?

I wish I could help but I know you should not blame yourself for any of this. as Moms we take on everything and think we are to blame for every bad thing that happens to our kids. The truth is your husband is a pedophile and he probably would have found ways to get to your daughter even if you had not been working nights. You have raised an amazing woman -one strong enough to go through with court hearings. you need to heal as much as she and your sons do. i think you should continue getting counselling. Let time heal. I hope this helps
