Hello ladies,

I joined this board back in October 2011, to have somewhere to go to talk about learning the ropes and the joys and challenges of being a mommy to my daughter, Haley (born 8-1-11). I eagerly jumped in to participate, but sadly fell out of sight just a couple months later. In the interest of full disclosure, I found out just after Christmas that my husband was having an "emotional affair" with a co worker and was tempted to take it even further than that.

Well, I'm afraid that I sank into a pretty big depression, and although I always loved and took care of my gorgeous baby, the fact that he could do that to me soon after her birth just devastated me and things were rough at home for a whole. I moved back in with my folks, who were a GODSEND in helping care for Haley. I began therapy, both individual and couples, and now my husband and I are back together and trying to work it out. My daughter continues to thrive and we both love her so much.

But with that all being said, I have finally begun to branch back out into the world and online. I went AWOL from the Internet during all of this, maybe because I found out about his betrayal from his Facebook page. Sigh...but even though I was only here a short time, I found it to be fun, welcoming and informative so I'm hoping I can come back...pretty please???

I hope everyone's babies are doing great!!!

Christy

Welcome back!! I'm living back with my parents too (who are also God sent) after BF an I broke up and he kicked us out of our house (long story). I'm glad you're doing better and getting counseling. It's funny how you don't know how muh you need it until you go and then it's like "woah this is great" LOL
