When my son was 7, my then 12 year old daughter sexually assaulted him, he did not tell me about this until my daughter left home at 16. They are now grown up, 27 and 32. I had an amazing relationship with my son but was not in touch with my daughter for some years the just sporadically. We became close again when she became pregnant with my granddaughter, now 15 months old and she now spends lots of time with us, my granddaughter has been such a blessing. My some moved to America 5 years ago and is happily married, no children yet. Until very recently I kept my relationship with his sister a secret as I was a avoiding upsetting him however it was becoming harder to hide so told him. He has now said I must choose between him and his sister, that he can't have a relationship with him if his sister is in my life. I love them both so much and have developed a close relationship with my granddaughter and have no idea what to do. I feel like my son deserves support it I also have guilt about my daughter as I feel I should take some responsibility, I was the one who raised her. She is an absolutely amazing mother, puts me to shame and she is doing a wonderful job of raising her daughter. I believe that she is a good person who did a terrible thing. I can't talk about this to anyone I know and I feel like I am backed into a corner. I can't stop crying, my heart is breaking.
