I have had a very turbulent life. I have spent the past four years rebuilding after losing everything in a divorce. I walked away with almost nothing, but the most important thing, full custody of my now 9 year old daughter. I had to file bankruptcy and I lost my house. I moved into an apartment in another county and remarried and had a son. Then we moved into a mobile home which my mom paid for in a very nice community. My life is full of challanges. My daughter has ADHD and anxiety, though she has greatly improved and just finished her best year ever. My son is 2 and 1/2 and has delays and is in the Early Intervention Program and will go into an IU. I work part time from home and am in the process of getting a second job. I just graduated with my Associates. Degree. My husband and I don't have a lot of money. I am working so hard to make our family a fun and happy one doing things like going to the local pool, having cookouts, playing games, doing crafts, ect. But I feel like I am at a stalemate. I always wanted to work with and be a foster mom. (It's what I went to school for) I want to find a good church community. My husband is Catholic and we are raising the kids Catholic, but I am not. And he gets upset we don't go to church together, but I don't go at all because I don't know anyone out here well and I am not sure where to go. Also I want to do volunteer work, something I can do with my daughter and be active in the community. I want to plant roots here and be apart of things that go on. But sometimes I am afraid to reach out because our financial standing isn't great and there are a lot of people driving BMW's and Caddies out here. I am not ashamed of my life. I work very hard and I am a good mother and a good person. I just don't know where to begin. Any advice? Or stories of how you started over?
