Hi. I'm new to the group and a newly single mom. About a month and a half ago my husband started chatting with an "old friend" on facebook and the rest is now history.He suddenly abandoned me and our three kids (3, 1 1/2, and 5 months), leaving us homeless. I had been a stay at home mom our entire marriage (i have two older kids) because he didnt want me working. He walked and out and left us with nothing.
I am trying to get my head wrapped around all of this and start over. He had become abusive, so i was needing to leave, i had just not figured out a way, so i guess this is just the push I needed. I am confident we are headed for a much better place!!! :)
Look forward to getting to know you all!!

Hello sweetheart. If you need someone to talk to I am here. Or just someone to listen to you. Stay strong and don't give up.

I'm so glad to hear that the church was able to help you and that you have a safe place to stay for now. I hope that you will be able to get connected to some community resources for additional support. I know of a free counseling helpline so if you are ever interested, just let me know and I can send it to you. Thanks for giving us this update and you and your kids are in my prayers!

Thank y'all. I did indeed contact the church and they had gotten us to a hotel for a couple of nights until a friend could come pick us up. We are now "back home" where I grew up...about 6 hours away from where we were living. A friend is putting us up for a bit. I really have no family besides my husband and kids and a cousin, but the cousin has her own family.
Thanks again...

Sorry its taken me so long to reply. I've had to move the kids from place to place. If you could give me the info for the helpline that would be great. You can pm me if you want. I feel like i'm really not handling this well...

Hi, BeaTx and welcome to the group.  My ex cheated on me, too, and fathered two kids in the process.  He also abused me and our daughter.  I'm SO sorry that this happened to you, too.  Betrayal is very hard to accept and eventually overcome.  BUT, you will overcome it.  I promise you.
