Hey All!! My name is Rebecca. I am a mother of 3 beautiful children and next month will mark the year of my ex husband leaving. I wanted to start a group for moms who just want a support after a difficult situation. Feel free to make statements, ask questions or advice, or just tell us some encouraging words. I want this group to be for any mom divorced or getting divorced, weather you have moved on and found new love, or are just in the begining process. We can discuss our trials, tribulations, funny stories, vent, or anything else that may come to your mind. This past year has been a severe roller coaster for me w/ losing my "family", and starting a new one... Feel free to contact me any time for help or advice. I am not a professional but have learned the most importnant things that books can't teach you.... and that is through EXPERIENCE. Even if you are over your divorce, and dont need support on that, I'd still love to hear about you as we have a similar factor connecting us. Thanks and hope this helps in some way!

Hi, March 14th I will be married 19 years. In the last 5 years me and my husband fight constantly like 9 out of 10 days. The name calling and downing one another is getting very bad. I'm really so tired of the arguing but when I think about moving on I automatically think of another woman touching him and being with my adopted 3 year old son or my 4 month old grandson and it suffocates me. Anyone have any advice or similar stories.

Ok. So i'm a SAHM of 2 and currently in a situation where the love of my life has betrayed me on the deepest level I could have ever imagined he could. I'm currently dealing with the insincere apologies. I love him with every inch of myself but the pain is drowning me and that's not healthy for the kids. I wish i could say i know he'll never do it again. But this betrayal happened in the work place. I don't think my heart is strong enough for this.

Hi! I'm am not divorced or separated yet but, I feel like we probably will this year. We had our first baby in October. My husband has some anger issues. Basically I just feel very uncomfortable in my own home and feel like I always have to walk on eggshells. He yells at our daughter when she cries and breaks her toys. She's only 5 months old. My heart just breaks for her. I guess I'm just wondering if anyone has been in a similar situation and what happened with your experience.

I am also divorced with a disabled 4 year old. He isn't physically disabled but he cannot control his rage. He has been kicked out of 4 different daycares and pre k will not allow him unless i attend with him. I too have lost 2 jobs, his father left and the family thats willing is too old to handle him. I tried EVERYTHING! I am not the type of mom who lets my child walk all over me in fact I am the opposite. I am VERY strict because of his behavior issues. Almost nothing he does goes uncorrected. I speak to him calmly, time out, take away toys and tv. I even occasionally pop his butt to jar him because he will have melt downs were it seems he is somewhere else and can't snap out of it. We tried meds, didn't work. I FEEL YOU SISTER!!! We can only pray and say God gave them to us for a reason.
Exhausted,
Rebecca

Hi, well I just found the group. I'm a divorced and now remarried mom. I have a 7 year old from my first marriage and an 11 month old from my new marriage.



I went through an insanity inducing 3 years with custody and visitation with my ex husband and then another crazy time getting the okay to move from New York to British Columbia. My ex resides in Georgia.



I'm using my new husband to help with some of the divorced stuff because his parents are also divorced and he knows what my daughter went through.

Hi! I am 34, divorced mom of 3 boys, and am expecting a girl in the next month with the love of my life. My boys are from my only marriage thus far, and my daughter's father was my first boyfriend in high school. We reconnected after 15 years apart and have had a better relationship now that we have experienced life outside of school and where we grew up. He is divorced as well, but did not have children with his ex-wife because she aborted his child, devastating him. He has 2 beautiful girls with his psycho ex-girlfriend who has lost custody of all 8 of her kids because of abuse over the past 20 years. My boyfriend and I have no plans to marry anytime in the next 2 years, at least. We are concentrating on him getting custody of his girls and I maintaining custody of my boys, then once that is all over, we're going to try and adopt the girls' older half-brother. It's a lot almost all at once. I am finishing up a second degree in 2 weeks and have had a wonderful support network in my boys and my boyfriend. My ex is all up-in-arms about me having another child, but it's really none of his business since it is my personal life and there is absolutely no chance of my daughter ever being even remotely his...I'm not an elephant and I do not have the gestational period of one. He is a paranoid being who blames everything on everyone else, hence one of the big reasons I left him...the other being his alcoholism and bad attitude. Some people in this world are never happy and feel the need to bring everyone else down to or below their level to feel better. I am happier than I have ever been and I intend to keep it that way.
