My ex husband took our children and left me homeless on June 11, 2011. I did not see our children for 2 years, 6 months and one day. He allowed me to talk on the phone with them once, but they didn't know who I was. I am now back in their lives, but with severe PTSD. I am also bipolar. I went through hell to get my children back in my life, when several times I just wanted to die, because I thought the pain would never end. We have had eleven months to get to know one another again. In this time, we have grown close again, like there was never any distance. I am not a hugely religious person, but I know that God is the reason I survived without money or medicines for over two years. And one day, my children and I will spend even more time together. Because at some point, they are going to realize the damage their daddy did to me. Nothing will stop them from figuring out the truth, eventually. I just hope my oldest, does not despise his daddy for keeping them out of my life for so long. He remembers being with me before I was abandoned. He thought that I broke a promise to never leave him. Now, he understands that mommy and daddy got in a fight and daddy decided to take them away from me because of my brain problems. I hope he understands that his father was just doing what he thought was best, because we are very close and I don't want my son hating his father because of our bond, one day. No child should be without either parent. I wonder if anyone on here has had to go through something like this before..
