Hello ladies, my name is Jody. I am now a 20 year old single mommy to a special needs 8 month old. I have always dealt with emotional and physical abuse in the relationship I just left, and after threatening to kill me, I finally gave up. I called the cops for the first time in my life, and he was immediately arrested for assaulting me. We go to court for our divorce hearing tomorrow. He has never taken care of our son (who was planned by both of us), hasn't given us any money since we split, etc. I am scared to death of leaving him with his father so they will be supervised for now, but it is still scary. I cry just at the thought of leaving him alone. Does anybody have a similar situation or words of advice about the process or healing from all of this? Thank you.
