My baby girl is 3 shes the happiest little girl in the world so carefree and loving, I'm not sure when it started but about two months ago she started having bouts of insomnia she wouldnt sleep for days and when she did sleep it was only for 2-3 hours she started acting out when she would come back from her fathers house, she stopped eating like she normally did and started losing weight.. I didn't in my wildest dreams think her father would ever touch her... I thought she was just going through a phase. Then last week when she came home from her dads, her brother (who is 5) hit her in the stomach when they got into a fight (as horrible as it sounds I'm thankful he did or else I may have not known for a long time) she started to freak out screaming there was a baby in her stomach, I explained that she couldn't have a baby in her stomach (That statement i chalked up to the recent birth of her half brother that her father just had) she then turned and looked at me and said "my daddy told me i'm going to have a baby in my tummy really soon" I again explained she couldnt have a baby in her tummy but that just didnt sit right with me why would you tell a 3 year old shes going to have a baby in her tummy. I let it go but it ate at me for three days I finally couldnt take it anymore and when we were at my fathers house i took her in a room and checked her (i'm used to checking her because of a medical condition she has) and then i simply asked her if anyone has touched her in her pee pee spot and she said "yes my daddy did and it hurt alot" I simply walked away (medical training in me told me to not question her further) I thought I had to go to her dr so i waited until the next morning and called her dr and they told me to take her to the emergency room. While in the hospital the forensic nurse kicked me out becuase I was getting really emotional while she explained to my daughter that she wanted to make sure she was ok, as i was collecting myself my daughter repeated the story to the nurse and when asked what happened she told the nurse she could never tell her. that broke my heart... During the exam there were signs of sexual abuse and the police were called on the spot. I have filed a police report and since she is in my custody and he does not live near us she is not top priority (which i understand 100%). I just feel like im not doing enough to help her and the guilt is ripping me apart. I was told to treat her as normally as possible so she doesnt feel she did anything wrong. ut i simply feel as though I'm losing my mind. I'm filled with so many emotions and I just want to help my baby girl.. and do unmentionable things to the thing that did this to her.
