I'm BAAAAAACK! (Formerly MayLady)

Hey everyone! After a looooong absence I have returned! It has been a scary 2 years and I'm ready to talk about what happened.....

I had been having a lot of problems in my marriage for years and it got worse after having my precious baby Lily. My ex husband was on daily rampages, his addictions had gotten worse, and it all escalated into physical abuse towards me. I left him on 6/22/2009 and was officially divorced on 6/22/2010. I was in hiding for a time or two and was afraid to open up about everything. After some serious drama, counseling, and focusing on picking up the pieces, I am happy to report I am safe and moving on with my life.

Lily has grown so much and is very precocious! She's everything I could have hoped and dreamed for in a daughter. Sorry I was gone for so long! SO looking forward to perusing the boards and seeing everyone's little ones again!

Hi there!

I totally remember you and I am soo glad you are back! I love the pictures of you and Lily! I am soo sorry about what happened with you and your husband Sad I hope things get better for you guys and feel free to jump right onto our board again! I have been pretty much a lurker lately but our board has kinda slowed down. I can't believe our kids will be 3 1/2 soon and my son will be 2 in September!
