I am so heart broken. I raised my 2 children & protected them. I kept from them why their dad left them 3 times. I remarried a wonderful caring Man that he still thinks the world of my kids. 2 years ago, my son met a girl. She was sweet at the time until she got a ring on her finger. I was "Momma Mary" until she got the ring. Then things went SOUTH! A month before my sons wedding, we...

He was a verbally and emotionally abusive man,...

I had dressed, put on my makeup, I had it down. What I wanted to say, how we were going to...
Hi, I am new to this site. I am a 61 year young woman who has been estranged from my adult daughter for 4 years +. I don't even know why or how the estrangement occurred, but it was exasperated by the death of my mother two years ago. The loss of my mother was huge! It was like losing a limb. The first time I saw my 32 year old daughter was at my mom's burial. After the first 2 years of...
