      Wow, that is a very difficult situation. I think a wait and see situation is not a bad idea at this point. She does deserve to know why she won't be seeing her daddy and you do have to do everything you can do to keep her safe but time will let you learn the full story soon enough.

          I can't imagine being the mother in this position but as the child (which I was many years ago) I wish that my family had gotten me checked and gotten me help. Even though he was never convicted my family had their suspicions and never did anything about it. Now i have PTSD and nightmares. It's difficult but the sooner there is treatment (assuming anything happened), the better it will be in the long run. Good luck! :)

            I am so sorry to hear that. no child should have to go through this.
