I am so so sorry for your daughters pain, and yours. She is a hero to disclose and your support is so wonderful and needed ! my daughter disclosed last year abuse by her father and i/we have 'lost' most of my family ! i was shocked and retraumatized by it. You are not alone, look back at some of the discussion here-many others have experienced the same thing.you are right to be uneasy with the 'head in the sand' stance ! IT IS WRONG ! DO get counseling-specialized in abuse victims for you both. if you dont know where to look... you can look for resource information on the website RAINN. also, have you seen the website MOSAC ??? i have read and reread info from that site all year, and it is very helpful !
you are doing the right thing by supporting your daughter ! that is what is important! sending prayers and a hug from one mama to another
