I am very confused and as a single mom I am going insane because I have no one responsible enough to go to, to help me with my situation. Here goes... My 2 1/2 year old daughter came home from being with her father one night and while she was sleeping she started crying no. I calmed her down and helped her fall back asleep. I didn't think much of it because she dosen't see her father much so I thought it was just the anxiety of coming home after something new. Well this continued the second night and I did the same thing woke her up, calmed her down, and put her back to sleep. In the morning I was changing her diaper and I just simply asked her "has anyone been hurting you" she said "yes, daddy" this back and forth conversation went on for a couple of mins I asked her what she meant. She looked a bit confused. So I asked her where did daddy hurt you. She I swear darn near put her finger inside herself. I immediatly jumped up and scheduled an appointment that same day with her doctor. They did a female exam on her and said there didn't appear to be any forced entry or penitration. Social services got involved and brought my 2 1/2 year old in for questioning at a childrens advocacy center. She dosen't talk to well so I let them know that she is in speech therapy classes. She didn't tell them anything they said she seemed happy but couldn't get her to talk of course. As I expected. Its been about a month since this was brought up and we haven't done anything since then. My daughter is laying in bed tonight and I went in to talk to her to tell her to go to sleep. She started saying things again about daddy touching her and how he is nice and funny. She pointed to her butt when she said this. I am so lost what should I do!
