I am new to this site, and am definitely not from the age when "chat rooms" were popular, so I find it hard to navigate posting sites and chats, but I feel I need to reach out and that it is important. My story is long, and so I will not go in to all of it, but seven years ago my eight year old son told me that my father was sexually abusing him. My life stopped at that moment. It changed. You know there are defining moments in certain people's lives that stay. Your life before, and your life after. And that was mine. I lost my home, my marriage, my sanity, my daughter's trust, my son to placement after placement, and I am finally starting to see...you know, like it took that long. It hurts. I lost my entire family, because of course I let out the dirty secret. The police, the prosecutors, they all did nothing, because my father had money and retained counsel, and that was that. That is one of the things that bothers me most. Is that you do not see the real pedophiles on these sites where they register. You see the poor weirdos. I just need to hear from other parents, and how do you meet them. Stand at your local grocery store and ask as they walk in, "Hey, has your kid been molested?" I feel isolated and alone in this and so I am going to give this a try. Hopefully I will learn to navigate the site. Thanks for listening.
