My 11 yr. old dd talked openly to me last night, and it broke my heart for her. I wish I knew how to help. Sometimes as a parent the weight of cares seems too heavy to handle! One with Asperger who's been molested, and the other emotionally abused., she can't believe anyone loves her and doesn't want them to love her because she thinks they will hurt her too. Agh!!!!! She wants me to hold her, yet when I do, she gets uncomfortable and pulls away. She is so torn. It hurts when my children are hurting. I'm so incapable of helping them and it's driving me crazy....then there's my own stuff to deal with...but that's another story.
