My oldest daughter turned 15 yesterday.She has been such a joy to me and is such a sweet person.She had some very difficult things happen to her during her 14th year.She had her Grandfather and step-Grandmother turn against her when she reported to them that the step-Grandma's 19 year old grandson had assaulted her during a stay at their house.They made her feel like she was not important and did not tell me or her Daddy what happened.She finally told me a month after it happened.Her Grandpa has not told her he was sorry about what happened and basically let me and her Daddy know that it was her own fault.I'm sure he would have continued to hide it from us if she had not told me,his only concern has been to protect himself.He is such a joke and continues to be a youth pastor.
I have so much sympathy for women and girls who have been sexually assaulted and are made to feel ashamed and that it was somehow there own fault.My daughter's choice of her first kiss has been taken away from her and it was NOT her fault.
It has been so hard for me to deal with because she is like a precious gem to me and I would give my life for hers and she has been treated like she is trash.
