My husband and I met about 18 years ago. We have four beautiful children together but in addition I have 3 from a previous marriage and he has 1. All the children get along well and do not consider themselves to be step or half brothers and sisters.
About 5 years ago we suffered a fire and nearly lost everything. We had home owners insurance but that did not satisfy our mental attitude. We both dove heavily into drugs and it tore our family apart.
In the middle of the night, I packed up the four youngest who where still living at home and we moved ten hours from a place I called home for 40 years. I put an end my addiction to crack hoping and praying my husband would follow suit.
Years had passed and I did not hear from him until about a month ago......clean, in good spirits and a Christian Man...wanting nothing but his family. I have always missed this man and loved him. I could not deny him of his family. Three weeks later he came "home".
I did seek assistance through the system to collect child support over these years but they were unable to locate him. In the meantime, a staggering $20,000 racked up and felony charges were issued. I told him what the situation was and he immediatley told me it did not matter. He will come and take care of this so that we are able to put this behind us and be a family again.
Neither him or myself are able to pay the bond for his release and are currently waiting for a bail reduction hearing and praying the Judge releases him to come home on no or little bail. All the support is owed to me. So what ever monies are paid will be directed back to the home.
I love my husband and I love my children.
I know the Lord is a forgiving Lord and my family means everything to me.
All I want is for my husband to be given a chance to show he has changed and can be a positive God Fearing man.
