Well, the husband and I separated last year and are now divorcing. He just deployed today, so he's gone for the next 7 or 8 months. And I also have a boyfriend on the same ship as him, so for the time they are gone I am going to live with friends in louisiana. I was having issues with deciding on whether to take my DD or not, but I've gone back to my original decision which was to take my daughter with me cus no one else should be raising my daughter but me and my ex... and since he's gone it'll be me. The only reason I ever changed it was because my ex kept pressuring me to leave her when I left and I kept saying no until he talked about how great she was doing with his girlfriend. This made me feel inadequate as a mother... like I didn't know what I was doing. And maybe I don't. But it's my job to learn as her mother. My biggest fear is that if I left her she would grow to resent me. So I don't want to do that to her.
