I'm new here..I'm a parent of an alcoholic daughter..who is pregnant as well and she is suffering from PTSD..from sex abuse from her father..who is now in prison. She has just started last couple of years having flashbacks..and anxiety. I'm came looking on the internet for understanding and help. I know I need to Let Go and Let God..none of us have been going to church in a while. Moved and haven't found one we are comfortable with. I'm so scared for her..I want to fix it all and I know I can't..but I still want to. She is in counseling..but not as often as she should I think. Counselor is hard to get a hold of. She was sober for a while..then had a lapse a couple of weeks ago..then sobered again..then drank the last couple of days. Today is the first day of sober again. The baby's daddy doesn't help matters any at all. He causes more anxiety..stresses her out..afraid she will lose the baby to him. I try to reassure her..momma's are first choice when it comes to courts and custody..but she still worries. I just need prayers and understanding..and maybe tips on how to let go and let God..or how I can help her..

Sorry for what brought you here but glad you found us. I'd like to suggest you check out this part of the forum

Knowing what to do and how to help (and how you CAN'T help...) is tough, but there are folks here who can help you find your way.
