Ok, DH had a really rough childhood, I mean REALLY rough, horrible abuse at the hands of his father and other family members after being kidnapped from his mother. He was beaten so badly that there are parts of his back that he can't feel at all because of nerve damage, not to mention being put in the hospital almost dead because he was denied medical care. After the hospital stay he was returned to his mom at age 16, and she demanded that he get a job and pay off every scrap of food she allowed him to have. After he graduated he got a good job and moved as far from her as possible. Now here's the problem; my family LOVES him! They want him to be part of the family I was raised in (I have a great family) and he's so scared that they'll try to use or hurt him that he backs away most times. He's getting better now with our daughter almost here, but he's still edgey. How do I help him realize how much they love him?
