Although I had begun to suspect him from her sexualized behavior and from the fact that there were no other opportunities in her protected life for sexual abuse to occur, it was impossible for me to believe that her father would do such a thing until I heard my daughter explicitly describing one of his acts and crying softly to herself that she loved him, that it couldn’t be “that bad.” We are all capable of embellishing the truth and, in some cases, inventing it under the power of repeated suggestion.
