It has been six years since she was lured off the internet, kidnapped and taken out of state, then sexually assaulted on the way back home. As you may recall he was arrested and sentenced to 10 years jail, etc. He was let out in January and was paroled but in May his parole was up, now he's just on probation and has registered as a sex offender. He's not allowed near difficult child (and quite frankly, I don't think that he would anyway, so not worried there). When this all happened, difficult child was 15 and already in counseling, however, after this happened, she was not cooperative and tried as hard as she could to just ignore, deny and block it from her memory. Last year, while sitting around the campfire drinking wine, she spilled a lot of stuff to me. At that time, I urged her to find a good therapist who had experience with sexual assaults and she said she would, but then never did. Now for the good news: SHE FOUND A THERAPIST AND HAS HER FIRST appointment TONIGHT!!!!! OMG, I am so HAPPY that she's taken that first step for herself. Lately, some things have come up with her and E (boyfriend) and she said it's freaking her out and that she now realizes that she's got stuff to work through. And she's hoping that E can join her as well at some point. I am so happy about this, I had to share.
