My daughter got what she wanted and deserved! She got the VERIFICATION from the Child Protective Services in our area of the sexual assault from her brother's father. I am soooo proud of her persistance. She demanded they listen to her after three years of being told they couldn't believe her. It was sooo validating to see the social worker lean into her and say, " we believe you". WOW!
She froze and went pale. I dont' think either of us expected this decision given our past involvement. I really think she was in shock. So much so she could barely respond. She sat there and couldn't even smile. She couldn't feel anything until the next day. I felt a bit sorry for the Child protective worker because I think she was hoping for a response. One of relief or of anger or something but she got nothing. Kind of ironic. K got nothing from them for three years and than when they hope for a response...they get nothing LOL...too ironic. I think my daughter said it best... " A lot too late mom".....
This is true...a lot a bit too late but I don't care. The next day my daughter seemed to have a weight lifted from her. She was smiling and said " I feel better"...
Good enough for me!
I love you all SURVIVORS and I pray you get the validation you seek and so deserve. I pray for your healing and recovery from this horrific crime. An entry comes to mind that I posted a long time ago. I'm going to find it and re-post it for those who still seek justice. I want to thank you all for your support from the deepest part of my heart.
