I am so sad that you had that experience, . It’s heartbreaking when those decisions are completely out of your control.

As sad as I am for me and for the children, because I know how much they miss me, I am glad they are in a real family now with a caring and supportive stepfather and that they and my daughter no longer struggle financially. I just wish they could be closer — a place within a reasonable driving distance would be nice.

Thanks for reading and taking the time to share your story with me. I truly appreciate your support.

I was always a writer but lived in a bookkeeper’s body before I found Medium and broke free — well, almost. Working to work less and write more.
