I just found out that my 4 year old baby girl has been molested by another child. I am devistated. I feel like I failed my baby and like somehow I should have known and stopped it before it happens and I just couldn’t. How to I move past this how do I help her when I can’t even keep myself together for a while 24 hours without breaking down about it. I am at a loss and I blame mys of for not protecting her. I don’t know what to do and I am terrified of what she has been through. Where do I go from here? How do I teach her that it isn’t okay without ruining her and how did I ever think that this world was safe enough to have children in?! I think I need counseling for myself as much as she does and I’m scared even more of that and what could happen because of that.

I'm so sorry... I blame myself too but I think counseling is a good start.

I have memories that haunt me. They replay over & over in my mind all day every day... I feel so guilty because it was my (ex) husband. How could I not know... He admitted to me exactly what he did it was awful. It made me physically ill.

It makes me sick to the core of my being that I unknowingly chose to share my life with a monster. It haunts me every moment...of every day...

BUT

We need to remind ourselves that it was NOT our fault. Our children are the most important and we need to stay strong for them to heal and thrive.

Get help as soon as possible. I'm so sorry you're going through this...

Sincerely-
Another mother in pain
