The reason my Mum cut me out of Christmas was because I raised with her that my then four year old daughter disclosed that my mothers second husband (who I did not know was abusive until this point - my father was the abusive male in my life) touched her inappropriately (either while I was in the house, or while I left for an hour). My mother does not believe that this happened and basically cut me out of the family. She was enraged with me because a notification was made to a Child Protection and the Police Child Sexual Abuse Unit, although no action was taken. My daughter has been having play therapy all year and is now doing really well. Needless to say, I do not want to go to the family Christmas, as my Mum has stayed with her husband and I don't want my children to be any where near him. However, I feel really sad that my mother has at no point given a toss about how I am or how my daughter is, nor have my sisters as they don't believe it either. I am feeling really alone at the moment. I feel really sad that I do not have anyone in my family that I am connected to, or who cares about me or my children. I feel sad for my children too.
