How has ur last five years played out?

5 years ago i was placed ing foster care. nothing happened other then the fact that i was with bad foster parents and i was put with another family. About 9 months after being put into foster care (Aug 5 2005) i went to a christian camp thing called Sonfest and meet my future husband there. 10 months later we got married (June 23 2006) and just a few months after that (Sep 1 2006) we had our first son Reese. Nothing happened really other then the fact that my family found my real dad after 13 years of not seeing him. I also meet my husbands mom in tenn. and his 3 brothers. July 5 on my bday we got pregnant again and march 31 2009 we had another little boy Brodie and now we have been married for 4 years and today we have known each other for 5 years!

Its been great how has urs been?

  • Well, I met my soon to be ex husband at one of the only jobs he had in the past 5 years, but it wasn't all bad I guess. I spent the last 5 years having nothing, being frustrated about having nothing and not being able to pay bills because he didn't work, and had to move in with my mother in law...looking so forward to this next chapter in my life LOL.

  • 2 pregnacies, 2 babies, sold and bought a house, lost my mom. Good and bad, mostly good, with just that one big zinger.

  • 5 years ago I realized I was co-dependent on a deadbeat boyfriend and I broke up with him. I've moved around a lot, done a lot of volunteering, tried a few jobs. I found a couple of really good jobs where I learned a lot. I was finally financially capable of getting into University 1 yr ago. I finally met a boy of my dreams, easy going and raised catholic 2 1/2 years ago, got engaged a year ago, getting ready to have our first child. My family and I have reconciled on both my moms and my dads side within the last 2 years... Overall, fairly well. These 5 years have been good.

  • Last 5 years so rough. Hubby lost his father, and we moved 1000 miles away from my family. HUbby was hurt and is now fighting ss because he can't work and my son was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. I can not find a job either.

  • wow it was a crazy 5 years! 5 years ago I broke up with my fiance who i knew for 10 years, and dated someone for 7 months who was missing teeth, drank often and had a foot fetish. I ran into a bad crowd and got a dui and I partied a lot. 2 years ago i met SO and 3 months later I got pregnant. things are wonderful now. we are hoping to buy our house soon, SO is a hard worker and i'm a sahm. our son is my world and I have a clean slate and rarely go out anymore. I think back to all the bad times...if I didnt go through that I wouldnt be where I am today. I am stronger and have a better head on my shoulders
