My oldest daughter was abused by her cousin when I let her stay with her father's sister one summer. I took her to counseling for a long time but I still feel like it is messing with her. Do people ever get past something like this? Is there anything else I could do? She is an adult now and I hate to see her so untrusting and unhappy.

You did the right thing in taking your daughter to counseling for a long time. I think you should continue along the path of encouraging her to get help. Maybe a support group in addition to individual therapy would help her continue to work through this trauma.

You have done the best you can for her and now it is really up to her. My cousin, actually a couple of my cousins, were abused by my step grandfather and his grandson. The biggest thing with them was they needed to be heard and know it wasn't their fault that it happened. Now one of my cousins and I talk and we are in our thirties, she has married and has children but was unable to perform certain acts. She feels safe with her husband now and has overcame her fears. She is doing great and it may not take your daughter as long since you got her therapy but healing has started and it will be complete one day.

The brain is made to remember things either good or bad experiences. It is up to her to make these bad experiences shape her own future. You have done your part and continue supporting her whenever she needs it.
