Hello Ladies, How is everyone? Congrats on all of the additions!!
Here's my update.....
It has been so long, I don't know if any of you remember me. I had a somewhat hard time going from a 3 child family, to a 4 child family. My pregnancy with my son was a difficult one, with them telling me there was something wrong with him, first they thought Down's (amnio ruled it out) then he had a problem with his heart. After he was born, we found it was a simple murmur, which would go away (thankfully). Then they thought he was autistic. (This hasn't been completely ruled out as of yet.....he goes to the developmental ped tomorrow)
My family went thru a separation (and soon it will be a divorce) almost 2 years ago, after I threw my ex-dh out for prepositioning my best friend for sex, this on top of ALOT of other problems(his anger issue, his not wanting to work, addiction to porn, treating me like crap, esp in front of the kids), that was kinda the straw that broke the camels back, ya know?
The kids have had ups and downs about this, but they do get to see him every weekend, and spend overnights with him. And I enrolled them in cyber school last year, after issues with the elementary school. They have done pretty well with this.
I reunited with an old friend from high school, whom I fell in love with years ago, but our paths didn't cross before. We found each other thru a mutual friend on facebook, and before dh and I split, we were just friends. Jeremy has been a great help thru everything, and we are now engaged. I know that this sounds like I went from one extreme to possibly another, but I can't complain.
Me, personally, I feel like a new woman. I realized my strengths and weaknesses from becoming a single mother, and found that I do deserve better than what Corey (ex) was giving with me, and found that with Jeremy. He has 2 kids and they get along with my kids. All in all, things are well....
SO if u made it this far, thanks...It felt good to get it out there
ETA: You guys can find me on facebook, Leslie Rader-Fehr, there are recent pics of all of the kids

Hi. Nice to meet you. Which cyber school are you using? I'm planning to use PA Cyber for all 5 of my kids next year. It seems like it may be a daunting task.

Glad you are back, and that things are going well!
