I married a man 20 years my senior, about 11 years ago.  He was a good provider, very loving to the children.  The marriage was largely business-like, in my opinion.  I often felt that my opinions and views were second to anyone else's, including strangers.  Last year we separated, my children have special needs so I don't have custody of them now.  I live many states away from them, staying with relatives because I have nowhere to go.  Once I had an opportunity to visit my children my in-laws wouldn't allow it, my ex husband was nowhere to be found.  No court order has barred me from seeing them, I simply was locked out of the house.  So I went back to my hotel room and waited to see them for 1 hour the next day.  That was the last time I saw my little ones.  After many years of not working I am slowly starting to build a simple life, hoping I have the means to return to my children.  I'm here to look for resources to help me, I've done nothing wrong...I'm not an abuser or a criminal.  Just here to try and find some strength.

Thank you, it's taken me a while to be able to do this. Been in shock for months now, high time to be proactive.

I can't say I understand your situation, but I can give you a shoulder to cry on!!! Hi Friend!!
