When I first had ideas for this page, I wanted to see it turn into a place of support and strength, not ex-husband bashing.
Yeh, I know. It’s hard ladies. I still feel the sting. And when we pay child support,and have to see our money go to the person who, chances are, exist in the top 3 of the people in this world you most despise, it makes everything harder. It makes waking up and going to work feel like a true waste – like you are somehow hurting yourself. I know the sleepless nights, when you wake up from a dream of your child(ren) and its so real you can smell them, you can feel them, its so real you don’t want to wake up…but you do. And when you do, you go to work, and you lose 60% of your paycheck, and that makes paying the bills very hard.
We have to remember one thing, when the days seem so glim and hopeless.
We are still MOMS. The ex-husband can never take that away. The new step-mom, can never take that away.
The star that burns bright in the night sky, that you look at every night when you pray before you go to sleep, was first carved out …by you. She or he grew inside of you, for 9 months.
Don’t give up. You’re not alone out there…. and you can survive, no matter what you must overcome to see your child’s face again.
And they do want you in their life, no matter what their father makes you out to be.
