Hello. I actually joined in June, but now I feel a bit more ready for(and in need of) support. I am the younger sister of a sex offender. My brother has admitted to the allegations against him and was recently sentenced. I don't know how to feel about this. I have been in denial for so long. So many questions are going through my head. Can I ever trust him again? Will I ever feel comfortable around him again? I am scared for him. I am worried about his children, and how they are going to cope with all of this. I worry about my Mom, and the stress this is putting on her. She and my brothers wife attend group counseling weekly. I am considering individual counseling. I am hoping that by joining I can start to feel better and open up a little.
