I really need input and advice...please... I've been married 4 years, and 2 months after being married found out my husband had a little girl in foster care. We fought for over a year to get her into our home and I was finally able to adopt her to secure she was safe from her situation. I wasn't able to get any kind of paying job since being married because of that situation being so involved. I then had my now 10 month old, and am now pregnant again, unexpectantly, due in mid February. When I was 4 months pregnant with my 10 month old, I found out my husband had been cheating on me. Now that I am pregnant again, his cheating hasn't stopped. I've never been with anyone other than my husband, so this is all overwhelming for me to say the least... I can't stay in this kind of marriage much longer if my husband keeps treating me like this... but I am at a total loss of how to raise soon to be 3 little ones on my own, and how to find a job, and care of the little ones, and everything. I don't know where to start. I've never had it easy in life and things just handed to me, I can work hard and won't give up, but I don't know where to start with this...this is all so overwhelming. I have an Associates degree in culinary, but nothing else. My only real work experience is waitressing... I don't have any family that I could live with or have watch my kids and help me through my upcoming delivery or to help while I try to find a job and work...my husband has been my everything...without him, I'm alone. I don't know how to take care of my little ones and provide for them and get through my having another baby alone. How do I do this? Any advice or input would be so appreciated as I am just broken and at a complete loss right now on where to go from here. Please help... thanks

one thing at a time have this baby.... then seek help outside your home / family. put a list friends / family that would be willing to help you and the kids. lets not forget the best dad a child can have god and the best friend you need now god.
