The big ask.....


So for those of you who know my story and those who don't. I have been a member on here since 2012, and in the shadows for much longer. Thank you for all the support & well wishes, not to mention the amazing advice and perspective. I am headed to court for what is expected to be a 3 day trial. Please pray for my little family of three. Send me all the strength you can spare. The kiddos have been telling me how proud they are and I just hope I can be strong enough to live up to their praise. I am fighting for their future to be secure without them having to engage with AH if they chose not to. I am fighting for a standard split which seems like a no brainer but this is my first time so humor me. I can almost see the light at the end of the tunnel, I know there is more sadness to come but honestly I would just be grateful for a few days of peace without this constantly hanging over me. Send me all your juju, prayers and any magic if you have it.

Good luck ! I am in the middle of my trial too. I just want to move on and get done with it. I have already been making efforts to keep the focus entirely on me but I think once this huge phase is over, it is all about me from there on. It is tiring to go through prolonged divorces. Mine has been going on for 1.5 years. But I see the light at the end of the tunnel now. A new beginning. I am so glad that your children are cheering you on. Hugs !

Prayers for you. Family court battles suck in general. I'm so sorry you're going through this. I will pray for you to have the strength to endure all this craziness and for the best possible outcome for everyone.

Hi dawnrising,

How's your in person support network? This online support is amazing, too!


May you have many blessings, great inner strength and good surprises through these days.

I havenít had a moment to breathe. So first things first after 2/3 a day in court and some shenanigans we basically got continued to start over on feb 6. Ah still reads my stuff so I will tell you all about it in feb.a butt was kicked as far as the wood work. I had planned on hiding out for a few months and resting but my hp has other plans. My 3 dogs got out and itís the country so they can be gone in any direction in seconds. They were missing for 7 hours. The hp part in those hours of driving and talking to every person I saw , I met so many neighbors. So many willing to help. I met a guy who took my # and offered me organic beef, chicken and eggs. I met a lady who gave me all the locals sites, I met a financial planner, a headhunter, a cpa. I finally found my dogs they came home muddy and exhausted. The next day a neighbor brought me a gps tile to put on the little ones collar and I will be going to church with her. Another neighbor brought me a sweet potato pie a bulb for the garden . When she asked about my husband I told her and she says I go to Alanon on tuesdays can I pick you up? There are just crazy signs all around the universe has wrapped its arms around me . I am humbled
