What about the Mother.....

I agreed to joint custody 18 odd years ago with my husband as the custodial parent. I was young, had not worked while married (3 years total)- we had agreed that I would stay home and raise our children. I could not believe that my then husband would do to me what he has done - I thought he was a good guy. He is not a good guy. He has continued to not be a good guy threw 2 more wives and woman with whom he had a affair with, got pregnant, and caused his third wife to divorce him. He lives with her now but keeps his own apartment.....

I tried everything to make my first marriage work for the sake of my daughters. I am a child of divorce and would rather work it out with him, though I did not believe him worth the effort. He was not abusive (physically) and I wanted to be a responsible parent. I remarried 6 years after the divorce and have 3 growing children that I home school.

I paid Child Support up until I had my first son in 1996. Since then I have had two more children and have remained a stay at home mom - my husband is our soul support.

To date I owe $30,000 in back Child Support. The father of my 2 oldest girls has done everything possible to belittle me to my girls - whom I have brought down to Texas ever summer for years. I have remained their mother in spite of the fact that it's been their first step-mother whom he treats as their mother. She is willing to pay all kinds of money to stay in their lives! She has no children of her own. She lost their only child through miscarriage - while he was in the Pocono's with another woman....

I am a mom. That's what I do. I train my children in the way they should go. I take my motherhood very, very, seriously. I have remained mother to my girls all these years, through shameful treatment and wrongful humiliations - all worth it for them.

Is their anyone out there who cares......
