That looks like a very interesting and helpful book.
Sweets, you have been through a hard time, and are doing so well.
Hi sweets35, sorry if the links triggered all those feelings..but I hope it helps to resolve it internally somewhat too..
I think you have every right to be angry..and resentful..but guess what it is HE who is the loser in the long run. He will never know his own kids...and when his mother is gone..he will die lonely...unless he finds another person to latch on and live off..which I seriously doubt.
You have come so far..I really admire you taking charge of all your babies..and working and dealing with the other 2 (teenagers..almost)..it must take a lot of energy..I hear you about the cable bills..with gas/electric, cable, internet, that is such a big chunk of money every month...how about getting some body to do childcare now and then (high school volunteering?) If you can, reach out within your community for support..I know it is difficult with all that is going on..But building some sort of support network will help..

Thanks so much for sharing these.
