I have a 5 year old (girl), 4 year old (boy), 3 year old (girl) & a 1 year old (boy). The 5 & 4 y.o. are my niece & nephew- my sister passed away 3 years ago & I care for them.
3 weeks ago I found out BOTH of my brothers have molested the girls for at least a year- if not more.
I'm lost, confused & heartbroken.
I've separated them from my brothers & cut off all contact. They've enrolled in sex addiction therapy & basically, do I need to report them? My whole family knows & everyone is leaving it up to me to call the police.
I feel so overwhelmed. I almost just want to enroll them in therapy & have the therapist report them but I'm afraid that it will look worse on me. I've had CPS in my life twice because I smoke weed (even though I have my card) I'm just so afraid of the unknown, im afraid I'm going to get into trouble for not doing something, I'm afraid if I do report them that I'll lose my girls.
I'm afraid of everything. My whole life got turned upside down, my girls life got destroyed & their childhood got taken from them. Their family got torn apart...I'm so lost.
Is it necessary they get reported? I'm so confused on what's the right thing to do.
I don't know how to find help, I dont know how to find any guidance in this without reporting them.
....I just need some help, I feel so alone.

It wasn't until 2014 (age 8) that she revealed to her therapist that he was sexually abusing her on a regular basis that started around the age of 3 and persisted up to the age of 6 (when we left).It's been a long and...
