My daughter and I are becoming so excited to move across the states in a couple months to go help my friend. She's finally ready to leave her abusive boyfriend and wants me and my daughter to go stay with her so our kids can all be family. My old friend has always been the sister I never had. I did have a sister, but no one in my family has any interest in being a family. My old friend was always there. Every emotional breakdown, every swift kick to the face from life, she was there with me before I moved away 8 years ago. She was the type of friend for me that was just there. Even if she didn't know what to say or what to do to help, she was still there right next to me. The best kind of friend. Over the years after moving, we did grow apart some. Especially when we were both first moms. But we always stayed in contact. We're both so excited to go live near each other again. My daughter and I found suitcases yesterday and it really sunk in that we're leaving. We we're so amped up yesterday that we couldn't settle down to go to bed or do anything other than talk about moving. I have so much to do though, and less than 3 months to do it all. I have to start earning more so I have enough to get my truck fixed, build my credit back up, lose more weight, get rid of more of my stuff, paint this place, look for possible places to stay over there just in case, get things in order here. I know I should make some lists, but it feels like it's too early and they'll just change constantly. I think this move will be so good for all of us. My daughter will finally be around people we trust, have a family, friends her own age to play with, hopefully even sisters, maybe a gramma, I'll finally have a life again. No more of this barely surviving lifestyle I've been stuck in for almost 4 years. One more big step up, towards a better life. I am so unspeakably excited that we'll be able to FINALLY go camping again!! I grew up with nature in my blood and have been so depressed since not being able to go hiking or camping or swimming. We'll finally be in a position to start doing all of it again! Well, it'll be new for my daughter, but she says she's excited about it. There's even rock climbing family gyms there. I have always wanted to learn to rock climb. And it's an affordable price too. Cheaper than other basic gyms that just only have a 2 hour kids daycare room. So, my munchkin and I can learn to climb together. I haven't been able to do any of this in so many years. I cannot wait. Now, I just have a whole lot of work to do to get ready. I'm going to take a semester off of school when we move also, I don't want to risk my grades dropping again. I can't wait! Freedom to live a normal life again, HERE WE COME!!!!

@NCMom He lives in another state, and she ditched us to go back to him. No, we just got here a few months ago. I knew there was a risk, but we were "like sisters" for 12 years. I didn't ever think she'd just carelessly abandon us like that. Thank you, I appreciate it. Lord willing, things will stabilize for us. Sometime soon. I have a feeling it will.

@Living4Peace Wow again. Someday your friend will realize people (generally) don’t change...at least the likelihood of abusive boyfriend changing is slim at best... I’m sure u are holding things together as best you can for your daughter.
Keep us posted. As we care
There’s social services out there and a lot of caring compassionate support thru church. Blessings

@NCMom Abusers rarely do change, but often times the ones who choose to take rarely walk away also. i tried to be there for her, but she isn't ready or willing for help and I need to be there for my daughter first. We're in hot water as it is. I'm close to getting a local drivers license and hopefully qualifying for some resources.
Thank you. There is a a church near us, but honestly, I'm scared to reach out. I've literally been laughed away before by a church leader when we went homeless almost 5 years ago, so I don't really know how to go about it... It's embarrassing to even talk about.
