Thank you so much everyone for your prayers!!
It has been a rough time, but I think there’s light at the end of the tunnel.
My daughter is doing great - loves her new school, loves my parent’s house, loves not being yelled at constantly.
I have gotten all of my things here now and my husband is living with his stepfather. So contact right now is minimal. There have been isolated threats of “making me move back to the county.” I have surprised him and myself with inner and outer strength that I didn’t know I have. When he brings this up, I remind him that if he plays hardball, I will play harder and he won’t like it one bit. I have stood up for myself to his awfulness and I feel SO much better. I have been assured by local domestic violence center that he would have a very hard time making us move back to his county. I have MS, am on Social Security Disability (only $700 a month) and have NO family or friends in or near his county. And because she has a very stable life right not, in a new school and settled down, no judge would uproot us to put us back there. Especially since he has no permanent residence himself.
I have appointments with the county next month to look at my options for what comes next, as far as divorce.
Again, thank you everyone for your prayers. I have my first confession in 12 years on Friday and some pretty major sins to confess, so please keep me in your prayers because I am TERRIFIED!!!
God bless you all!
