So DD is almost 17 and came forward during her counseling and admitted that she'd been concealing that her sperm donor (my dh adopted her when she was very young, sperm donor abandoned us) abused her while I was at work. Serious stuff- and the statute of limitations doesn't run out for a few years. But since ex has another child that we know of (who, ironically, is nearly the same age as dd when she was abused), we found out we have to subpoena the mother of that child as part of our case. We'd hoped to avoid it, but our attorney called us at home today, on a Sunday, no less, to confirm. She's gonna get a shock- I've tried to talk to her before but she ignored me. I guess she just didn't believe it. She'll sure as hell have to now. If she'd have contacted me directly we could have gotten an affadavit from her, but oh well. So, now I wonder what this will be like. I hope they hang ex by his cajones (not that he has any- he's a coward) for what he did! Anybody else find out their child was abused later in life? Did you have to involve other people? I know this is gonna take a lot of time but I wish it could just be over with.
