Nerves

Back in May, I posted that we were dealing with a family emergency, but I didn't come out and say what the emergency was. At least, not publicly. A couple months later, I mentioned that NCIS was involved. My daughter has given her permission for me to go into a little more detail now, because she and I were both subpoenaed last week. There is going to be some sort of hearing before an Administrative Law Judge. I don't want to say too much in case by doing so, I really mess things up, but I will say that the Navy has already officially stated that abuse occurred.

What is upsetting me is that both my daughter and I have been called to testify. The Navy already has her full testimony video taped. They don't need to put her through this.

This is going to be the first time I have seen him since before any of this happened. I'm having a hard time concentrating. I'm nervous. But the thing is, I need to be strong for my daughter, who has been so incredibly brave this entire time. We are not going to let him get away with this. Nobody messes with my little girl.

Addendum: Please comment. I'm still feeling a bit lost and scared. Sometimes I feel angry and strong and other times, I'm barely holding on. I need all the encouragement I can get so I can come back and read it when I'm at my lowest.

Whenever you feel down, just think about the role model you are creating in your daughter. She's standing up for what's right and thereby inspiring others to do the same. You're both strong and you'll come out fine on the other side of this.

You're both in my thoughts....let me know if there's anything I can do, even if it's only to listen.
