I have a niece that informed me she was sexual, physically, and mentally abused by her stepfather. When she informed her mother she did nothing about it. This is the second time from what she told me this had happened and the mother did nothing. Now i reported it and the child was allowed to remain at my house by mother's request until the investigation was over. But that has all changed. Mother made the child come back home and CYF agreed even with the child telling them she doesn't feel safe going back. The child will talk to a detective soon and i am just worried that the child isn't safe at home. The mother won't allow the child to talk to me at all so i have no clue of what's going on. Any advice would be great and thank you for your time.
