My adult daughter is in a DMV relationship. She's been in that abusive relationship going on 8 years now. When the abuse started I attempted to get her out. However, every time I appear I didn't know her abuser was stopping her from leaving by threatening my life. Three yrs ago, they had a baby. The little one can recite the verbal abuse going on in the home. Apparently, something happened and DCF is now involved AGAIN (3x). They haven't removed the baby from their care. The parents told DCF SW I was crazy, and making up these stories. Knowing she is going to get away with it she is calling and threatening me with physical harm. My daughter drops the baby off with any family member willing to take on the responsibility for as long as possible. She often left the baby in my care from 2 wks to 2 months. Neither have jobs, savings, smoke weed all day and consume alcohol. My daughter refuses to acknowledge there are issues. His family acknowledges he is abusive. DCF is not siding with me based on what my daughter has told them. The baby shows signs of mental, emotional and physical abuse. DCF told me, "You didn't see it, so it didn't happen." All I can do is pray for the best outcome. My heart is broken.
