feeling out of sorts

So, my husband is due home on work release in about a month. He is addicted to crack, has had 2 1/2 years of prison clean time. I have a strong faith in God, and I beleive he has a plan for me. I believe I have to give my husband once more chance.

I was ready for the negative feedback from my family and friends, but HIS daughter called me yesterday to tell me she wasn't ready to see her Dad, let her Dad around her kids. She had asked me to babysit for her in November, and told me that I will have to come to her house for that, she wont bring the kids to me if her Dad's home.

Now, all through this prison thing, Stepdaughter has been great. She encouraged me to visit my husband, going with me on that 3 hour there 3 hour back trip. She TOOK HER KIDS to see him. And now????

I understand she's scared. He has hurt and disappointed children before. I understand her wanting to protect her children from that hurt. BUT I don't like her putting me in the middle.

I told her that; I wouldn't choose between her and her Dad (remember, she's my step daughter). she seemed surprised, but ok.

I dont know why I posted. I guess I need to vent to people who get how hard this is.
