Tragedy and trouble among my relatives



Tonight I learned that a grand-niece has been sexually molested by the common-law husband of one of my nieces (a man who is not the grand-niece's father). The niece is an alcoholic and unemployed, a woman who spent some years in prison for transporting a large amount of cocaine. The common-law husband has some income, and the niece is saying that she believes his version of what happened, which is that he molested the girl thinking that she was her mother. She woke up, when he had his fingers inside her, and he has been overly physically affectionate toward her before. She is just 13 years old, and exceptionally beautiful. She told my step-daughter what happened, by IM--probably because she knew her own mother wouldn't do anything.

I'm told that if this is reported to the authorities, the mother and the molester will say he is innocent, but the daughter would be removed from the family. My step-daughter has kept the girl with her since getting the IM.

If this had happened five years ago, any one of three of Ruby's brothers would have been ready to kill or severely injure the guy. But, two of the "avenging relatives" are now in prison, and one has died. I am not inclined to do anything like that, myself. (But I would rise to the occasion if the man attacked my grand-niece while I was there.)

I highly regard the step-daughter who let me know what is going on. She stood by her own daughter when a cousin molested her and supported her in testifying. That molester was convicted, but appeals have resulted in a new trial, I learned tonight.

I'd be happy if those so inclined would pray for the girl, and the whole family, in this horrible situation.

Prayer is NOT what she needs. Violence isn't either. Contact the Police and Social Work departments. It is their job to protect her.

And, actually scholar, what kind of person overshares this type of very distressing information and doesn't offer anything other than prayer as a solution? If you don't step up, you're part of the problem.

Really? Couldn't your grand-niece stay with your step-daughter?
What if that sexual molester re-offends? Some other girl could be left scarred for life?
