Having found out about a year ago that my now adult son had been the victim of sexual abuse by a much-trusted neighbor has really "rocked my world." My son has suffered so much in his life--so much angst and depression. And now it's really hard not to feel overwhelmingly guilty even though I logically know that feeling isn't justified. How could I have known? Maybe I could have; I sure feel I should have...Hope that there are other mothers out there who can help me work through this. My son deserves the very very best I can give him, the best I can be for him.
Wishing all of you hope and healing
