No question...but only 9 days before my new life starts!! So excited!!

Some of you may remember...several months back, I came on here asking for prayers and support. My husband of 11 years had just announced to me that he was gay and had been so throughout the entire time we have been married. I went straight to the doctor, got my HIV test (which has been proven to be negative twice now) and filed for divorce.

I have two kids, so the thought of being a single mom was terrifying to say the least! I have since secured a job and a place to live in the city we will be moving to, which happens to be near friends and family. At the beginning of this...I was in a deep depression and thought I couldn't go on. Well...day by day and prayer by prayer...I did! I have since overcome many fears that have been holding me back for a long time. Praise God!!!

My divorce should hopefully be final within the next two months, I'm moving to my home state where my friends and family are and I am looking forward to the next chapter in my life. I believe that THE BEST IS YET TO COME!! If I can do this...so can anyone of you that is put in the position.
