I can't begin to imagine your pain. Everything has changed for your family. Everything.

As for your daughter's vulnerability, she was vulnerable on age alone. Her half-brother took advantage of her young age and the relationship they shared. That's what sex offenders of children do, even when the offender is a youth. Taking him out of the home was critical to the healing of your daughter. She is too young to understand what happened, but she may well blame herself for her brother's abrupt departure. I hope you are getting her the help she needs, if not now, perhaps in the future, as she processes what happened to her. This will be especially important if she displays sexualized behaviours with her toys or even other children. Don't assume she will forget. Though she might repress the memory, her young age does not predispose her to memory loss of what happened. And as she moves through the various ages and stages of her life, the understanding of what happened may hit her. To bring her brother back into the home would be sending a message that her parents chose the offender over her, if not at this point in her life, at some later point. It's all very complicated when there's a child offender in the home. The whole family needs help dealing with the aftermath. I send you and your family love, light and healing energy. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

Thank you!
Yes, my daughter has been in play therapy with a Registered Play Therapist since the incident.
I love my son very much too and I hope he gets the help he needs at the treatment facility he's at. I have tried to be supportive and encouraging for his treatment. I can't just give up on him!
Like I said, I won't risk putting her in danger again so after he completes the year long program he will likely live at bio Dads house.
Please pray for my family!
It's been 2 months and still doesn't feel real
