My 9 year old has just (a few months ago) disclosed that her biological father has been molesting and raping her for the past year on his visitation. I immediately got the police involved and he has been arrested. I also got her into therapy. I am so worried about her, and I don't know what to expect as far as her healing. I want to do anything I can to make it easier for her. She is scared all the time, she doesn't even want to be alone in the bathroom. The therapist says she has a great chance of recovery because of her disclosure and our intervention. Does anyone have any thoughts or recommendations? It kills me that she has to grow up with these horrible memories and scars.

This test went HORRIBLY. They were about 20 seconds or so into...
