No anger is a reaction to being helpless in a situation, fear can exist on its own. The mother sounds like an awful person that has lost their sense of morals, i don't think that therapy will help her if she doesn't see the problem in herself. Abusers can't understand how to keep people around them so they end up controlling them trough fear and punishment.
Calling child protective services is a good decision, but as everything if you don't present video and/or audio evidence the mother can falsify that they are a decent family and the circle of torment will continue.
It sounds like you've done the best you can for now. Seems a shame that it would make anyone see you as an enemy, but, then again, if it's bad people who see you are their enemy, that may be a good thing on balance.
child protective services can take a few days as they start the investigation and open the file. if you didn't remain anonymous they will keep you up to date, including you should monitor that link they gave you that will state the progress of how things are. it can take several weeks as they properly investigate the situation and make certain the child is safe and there is legit abuse. they get calls all the time and they have to make certain sort of thing. until then be patient and be there to support the kid.
keep in mind if they do find that the child is in danger they will typically reach out to family first before pulling the child away and putting her into foster case. so, be aware they might reach out to as many family as possible. sometimes foster is actually worse than the conditions they were pulled from.
The living conditions are worse, most of the foster caretakers are fed up with their job and they wont care if something bad happens. Until they find a family that can take care of her she will have to put up with children that are just as bad as her mother. They usually don't get enough funding to afford comfort and proper food.
Since you've done the right thing, you don't have to care what those two say about you. Let them say what they want, you're an adult, they can't hurt you. You're the enemy allright. Abusers want to go on abusing, don't they? So if you're trying to stop them, you're the enemy. But then, since you don't need to care about that, shrug and hope it will turn out good for the little girl...
It's the anger about this injustice. That gets in your throat, I know the feeling.
Just think of that kid and call yourself her hero! Think of yourself as Sigourney Weaver in that second or third "Alien" movie, you know, when she saves that little girl? Your lump will pass right away
Unfortunately I wouldn't be able to. I do not have my own place and I am on my own healing path (although ive gotten far in such a short time). I know I would be great for emotional support. I know I could help guide, teach, make new habits, emotionally support, and show her how to gain perspectives. Money wouldnt be an issue. But my own situation isnt stable enough.
and that is why i always told my friends back in the day to not getting married early, only get married after youre mentally stable and you 100% percent sure you can take care of your child alone if your husband turned out to be that person who knew how to make babies but not to raise babies,also cheats every time the chances come.
There is no magic wand to make this go away sadly, she'll just have to endure it until she can move out. She is going to miss out on having a normal childhood but hopefully after she's out she can finally grow as a person and not go down the same path. Its nice that you care and I feel you're doing the right thing but I don't expect anything to come of it unfortunately.
