I am so sorry to hear of yet another child having to go through this horrific event. It isn't fair for them. My little boy was 5 when we found out, it was right before his 6th birthday. (He is still 6 now) It was very hard getting details out of him also and his mental disablities didn't help. So, I can empathize.
All I can suggest is just to keep reassuring that it... (3 replies)

... My heart too is sad.
Nobody deserves this.
Lot's of things went thru my mind as I read your post. I can relate to the uninvited thoughts when you're intimate (that's PTSD). I'm not sure they ever go away but I hear they can be managed. I experienced a similar situation (not family) and repressed it. That persons name triggered me, 7 years later, and I froze as... (7 replies)
... I agree with what Marcia wrote. Your partner's reaction to what his father said, doesn't seem right. I even asked my husband about it, and my husband said that if his father, or anyone else ever said something like that to me, or our children, he would NEVER allow them near us, etc. It's just sick and wrong for an old man to say something like that to a child. My step sister... (19 replies)
