An anonymous woman, Tima Kumkum, posted this heartbreaking story on her Facebook page, asking for her guidance and the opinions of her followers on what to do after her two daughters had a nasty interaction with their father.
Tima received a letter from a woman who wrote: “My wife and I have been married for twelve years, and we have three children: an 11-year-old girl, a 7-year-old girl, and a 3-year-old boy. My first daughter began bleeding for two weeks around a month ago. As a result, I didn’t pay much attention to it at first, but I made sure to guide her.”
“Her father, my husband’s father, had slept with her just three days prior, she told me, resulting in her bleeding. Even before that, she claimed he’d been pointing his finger at her for a few years. Our second daughter was also fingered by Tima, who told them not to tell anyone or they would perish.”
“Tima, what in the name of God will motivate my husband to abuse our daughters in such a way? That moment, I simply couldn’t control my feelings. After waiting for my husband’s return from work, I confronted him about the situation. Only for him to break down in tears and beg for forgiveness, and that is the devil’s doing.”
“Tima As I type this, I’m baffled since my daughters are distraught over the whole thing. If I don’t take action against their father, I’ll feel like a failure in front of them. Tima, I have no idea what to do about this. I don’t know if I should forgive him so that we can all live together as a family again, or if I should go to the police or report him to the family. I just don’t feel like myself; please advise on what to do about it. I’m at a loss.”
