You're obviously a very caring father. Continue to be supportive and encouraging of your daughter. She has good reason to be fearful. If you live in the USA, either point her in the direction of or contact yourself the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-SAFE (7233). They have advocates available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week who can provide crisis intervention, escape planning, information and referrals to victims or anyone calling on their behalf. Visit their website by copying & pasting the following URL into your browser:

If you live in another country, search out women's groups like that will have a list of resources available to your daughter. This is a dangerous time for her and her children, so she really needs a support system she can rely on. I send you all love, light and healing energy. Thank you for sharing your daughter's story with my visitors and me.
