Making Excuses for Sexual Abuse Allows Sexual Abuse

by Rose
(Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA)

My 6- and 5-year-old granddaughters are placed with the father, who lives with the grandfather. The 6-year-old had revealed earlier that her father had been touching her down there. I received a picture of the grandfather holding her with his hand on her privates, bruises all over both of the girls and a recording of the 5-year-old telling her mother of bruises all over her, in addition to hearing her get smacked and her yelling ow. The 6-year-old told her therapist that she has nightmares because her grandfather makes her sleep with him. Also, she has had female infections for up to 5 months with no medical treatment. I also found out that the 6-year-old has to sleep with the grandfather and the 5-year-old has to sleep with the father.

I reported all of this to D.H.S. and C.P.S. only to hear excuses and to be told that they buy them everything under the sun, so this is not happening. Then I found out that they bought them skimpy bikinis. All of this and I'm told this does not mean they are sexually abused. Yet my granddaughters are continually begging me to come and get them.

D.H.S. and C.P.S. is allowing this abuse to continue, by making excuses and turning a deaf ear. I will not give up until they are in a safe environment.
