I really need some help and thought this would be a great place to start!! I know moms will understand where I am coming from and help me get things done!!
A little history on the story:
I recently had suspicions(big ones at that) that my ex-husband and his nephew were molesting my 7yr old daughter when my oldest kids were visiting with them. There were huge signs of it and not to mention the things she told me. Ex: her dad makes her take her pants off and makes her sleep with him even though she has her own room and bed with her brother and even though she says she doesn't want too. She said she felt very uncomfortable with that. He also loves to put very skimpy clothes on her that are not at all suitable for a 7yr old. She also gets very upset when you ask her about what goes on up there and if she wants to go back. She won't say much else. There are lots more signs and incidents but I won't go into all those here. Needless to say, I called the Department of Children and Families and wouldn't let them go back with him until I found it was safe. The DCF sent a man to interview her!!!! Well of course she wouldn't talk to him!! She barely says this stuff to me! I was uncomfortable telling him some of the things that have happened much less my 7yr old daughter. I complained and tried to get them to send a counselor to talk to her because there is huge signs of brain washing as well. They said they couldn't send a counselor because we aren't on medicaid so they closed our case. I called and asked if they would please at least send a woman for her to talk to and they said no, that they cant' reopen a case. =( So this is where I am stuck and nothing is being done to protect my daughter. Her father is filing contempt charges on me for not letting him see them. I don't have over $3000 to get an attorney to fight this. I will figure out a way if I have to but I don't feel I should have to do that when crimes are being committed. The state should help protect my children and they aren't!! I have a petition going about this on change.org. (department-of-children-and-familiesstate) If you can take a moment to sign and pass it that would be great!! If you have any advice at all please, please share!! I am open to anything!! Thank you for your time and God bless.
