In October 2011 my marriage was going through a major change. When I met my husband in 2003 he was a drug addict and when we became pregnant he went straight. Anyways 8 years into our relatioship and four kids later he decided life was to hard and went back to some of his old ways. I met a man and fell stupidly for him. My husband and I split in may of 2012. I allowed him to take the kids to live by his parents so they could help with the kids while I got on my feet. I had not worked in 8 years and employment is hard to come by. So he moved into one of their properties and was going straight to take care of the kids. I trusted my husband to do right by the kids and with his parents right there he would have the support to take good care of them until I got on my feet. So that is a little history of how this all started.
Two weeks ago the man I fell stupidly for beat me up and put me in the hospital. I went to visit my children for the weekend as planned and I walked in on my husband doing his drug thing in the bathroom.I want my kids out of this situation and into a safe place for us. I am currently unemployed and living in a smalll apartment. This is enough space for me and the kids for now. I am posting this not to get critisized or judged but to see if there is any resources or organizations near me that can help. My father has offerred us a safe haven but he is in Canada and I dont know how that will work. Also he wont just let me take them out of country. Please if you can be helpful or please just pray for my family. I have come to this site for help. If you can help please do. No one is innocent in this situation but the children and now it time I put them first and make sure they are safe and their needs are met. It is about them and them only.
