Alexainie....This is a sad, sad, story. I grew up in a very "normal" family. We did get our mouths washed out with soap occasionally but we didn't have to eat it. I know once CPS gets involved you are in more danger then before. The abuser frequently gets away with what they've done. How could they not have followed up on your case after such a terrible incident? That is not a popular job and I imagine there are not a lot of people going into that line of work. I can't prove anything and if I went to the police it would make my daughters situation worse. Ugly all the way around. It looks like you've grown up to be a good person and that's wonderful after what you went through.

I’m retired and Medium helps me foster a young mind. I write about my experiences in life. Some mundane, some sad, some funny, and hopefully none boring!
