When my daughter disclosed to me it was in a letter. I stood and read it in her presence and my mind was reeling and I couldn't believe what I was reading. I looked at her with shock and I was numb! I screamed for my husband and really lived in a state of shock for about 18 hours after which I broke down on the floor of my bedroom and sobbed uncontrollably while pain ripped through me. I saw myself as a colossal failure as her mother and couldn't believe this had gone on under our noses. I had convinced myself that our two parent home was a sanctuary of safety and something like this couldn't happen to my kids. Whoa.....how wrong was I? Now I'm screaming from the rooftops - EVERYONE IS A SUSPECT! Look at the statistics...90% of abusers are people we know. I was so stupid to assume my kids were safe...I will probably carry the guilt around for the rest of my life. Now I can only set out to educate as many as those who will listen.
