Hi Mrs I,

Welcome to AfterSIlence. I am very sorry for the trauma that your daughter endured. I know it is very difficult to know just exactly what to do. She is very fortunate tho, to have a mother who loves her and wants to support her. Believe it or not, many survivors don't have that kind of unconditional support. Therefore if you thinks so, or not, she is very lucky to have you.

I know it's not easy for you, being unsure how to help and hurting for her. The best advice I can give is let her know you are there. Listen, when she wants to talk, but give her space when she isn't ready to talk. Sometimes as a survivor it really takes a lot to let your voice be heard...and it can't be forced, which may be the difficult part for someone who cares about a survivor. The best thing you can do is be available when she is ready. It may seem not enough, but believe me, it can mean the world.

I wish both you and your daughter the best. Hoping she finds her path of healing, with you at her side.

Mary
