It has been 2 months since I found out my husband was abusing our 12 yr old daughter. I had no idea it was going on . I thought her behavior was teenage angst and she never said anything. I only found out because I thought my husband was behaving suspiciously so I looked through his cell phone for proof he was having an affair and found instead sexually explicit pictures of our daughter and of himself. I confronted him and he blamed it on an online porn addiction. I made him leave the house and called the police. He turned himself in and confessed . He is in jail and has been charged but not indicted yet. The prosecutor wants to meet with me about the pending cases. This has totally disrupted our family. My sons are very sad and upset their dad is gone and I had to tell my oldest son who has aspergers, what his father did since he fought with his sister blaming her for his father being gone. The other boys who are 11-3 yrs old just know dad did something very bad but not what. My daughter refused to talk to the police, CPS or the forensic interviewers about what happened. She hasn't told me anything either. Her therapist says she has PTSD and has buried the abuse very deep down. My daughter refuses to acknowledge her father exits and will not talk about him and if her brothers do she leaves the room. She told me I am her hero and she always wants to be around me now where as my boys sometimes hate me for putting daddy in jail. I am sad, lonely, confused, angry ,disgusted and not sure what to do with myself. This has left my family in financial ruin and I find I am now going to have to go out and support my kids with not much training to get a decent job. I was a homemaker for 16 yrs. I feel like I should have known what was going on.

I am a single mom of a gorgeous little girl who will be 5 in a month. Over 2 years ago, she started making comments about her private parts hurting, or daddy hurting her. It soon came out that he has been touching her in a sexual manner. I had her examined and had him investigated. However, because she was so young, authorities would not do anything unless there was physical proof. It is...
