 Wow ok one I think its a crapy way he left. Two CONGRATS on the new baby. Three I feel for you I think I would be pulling my hair out but your keeping your head on and chugging along. I guess the only real suggestion I have is wel IDK I admire you being able to do all that. I would def ask him for CS to help for support for the kids. I hope he helps with the kids. Oh number Four Keep your sanity. I know I am not much help at all

Sorry, I have no clue!  but Congratulations on the new baby!  That's wonderful news.  I have two boys, and they drive me bonkers most days.  I thank god that my bf is great with them and helps me keep them in line when he is around.  :)  I wish you the best of luck!

my dh left when i was 4 mos. preg w/#2,both his.i was freakn out at 1st about money,but it's been fine.not to say there aren't hard days,but it has been better than i imagined.he was paying cs til he had baby #5 w/his psycho gf.i just take it day by day.

i consider myself very resourceful.ck out what kind of programs u qualify for that can help financially.emotionall,that's a diff story.lol.if u need counseling,a spa day,whatever do it.YOU r the rock now.u have to take care of you so u can take care of them.i noticed that if i don't take care of myself i get real snippy.just a lil time to watch t.v. in peace works wonders.or a long hot shower.

hang in there.u never know how strong u r til ur tested!!!

So sorry hun.  It is tough and will be for a while, no need to sugar coat things, because I wouldn't want someone to do so for me.  But, you just keep on in life and try and keep things as normal/stable for your kids as possible.  Things will get better!!  I promise!!  *HUGS*

Its not gonna be easy, but God doesnt give us more than we can handle. Focus on your kids and getting your new life together without the a-hole. It will eventually get easier, just hang in there.
