Hi,

I'm Janis, a mother of 3 boys and have a little girl on the way. My oldest son, Christopher, now 5 was sexually abused by my brother.  My brother is in prison, but his actions have forever left an imprint on my family.

Hi Janis!  Sorry I didn't see your post earlier.  Wow - you must be busy with 4 little ones!!!  Sorry to hear about your 5 year old!  I'm sure you are giving him all the love and safety he needs to have a normal childhood.

My daughter was actually stillborn, which has added grief to our anxiety.

Janis - I'm so sorry to hear about your daughter!  It sounds corny - but God knows how strong you are & you will get stronger everyday!  Is your oldest in counseling?  Karate or any self defense - teaching him that no one can ever hurt him again - was the best thing for my oldest!
