My heart goes out to you and your daughter, and to all the victims of this female sex offender. Yes, indeed, females CAN and ARE sex offenders. I too would be concerned about the well-being of her son. Society has difficulty believing that woman can be sex offenders (although they have no problem believing that men can be) because it tears at the fabric of who we are as a civilization. After all, how can the nurturers, the caregivers, the very gender that gives birth to the children possibly do such heinous acts to children. But they DO. And now it's time society see this as the reality it is. I will also say this, while not all child victims go on to offend, when children are sexual offenders, they themselves have been sexually offended against in some way. This reality must be addressed as far as the statute of limitations goes. There should not be a statute of limitations against offenders who sexually assault children. I bring this up, not because I'm excusing what happened to your daughter (there can be no excuse for the brutal way in which your daughter was treated) but rather because bringing light of understanding to the situation might be helpful for you, helpful in dealing with the pain you're suffering. And I feel your pain in every word. Please consider some form of counselling for yourself in order to help you deal with that pain. Both you and your daughter deserve to be out of pain. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.
