Im a 28 yr old mother who has had addiction problems, recently I left our home to go to treatment then to a 90 day half way house program. I am sober 6 months and I am 7 months pregnant with a healthy baby girl. My sons father and I are planning on moving back into together with our 11 yr old son who told his father a few nights ago he doesn't want mom to move in and doesn't want to change how things are. Thing sin the past were not excactly healthy as I would play on my phone and our sons father and I would argue a lot to do with my drug use. I have really taken the initative to change and with another baby on the way amd my sons fears my heart is breaking. My bf is so nervous because of my past actions but he really sees the change and wants our family to work out in the past we lived with his disabled father caregiving for him and plan on moving into our own place on the 1st. Our son being an only child and a daddy and grandmas boy he is really afraid that he is going to be unrepairably upset about us making him move in. I am just really looking for any advice I can get on how to ease our son into being able to trust that I not only have our babies best interest in mind but also his. Im truly to the core shaken up that my own son doesn't want our family back together and he has been hurt by me leaving in the past. Anyone have any idea how I can get him to trust me and how to repair his broken heart from the damages I have done in the past that is making him not want to make this transition?
