I am like a cat on a gridle today, having not been able to attend court in my children's case, because my younger son had taken ill seriously.

I have not heard any news from the court either. Rather than lose my mind as I am worried sick, I have been searching and researching.

I found the below link accidentally whilst looking for something else, but I couldn't help but share it here. I think it tells it exactly as it is and it does shed light on how non-abusing parents feel when our children disclose abuse (though I related with it on the context of a young child disclosing because that is my circumstance, I believe it deals with all other context of when the survivor discloses to his/her parents irrespective of the age at which this disclosure is made). I hope this helps - if it helps just one more survivor or one more parent here, then it was worth sharing.
