So, there is a bit of backstory here. Our oldest son passed away as the result of a tragic accident in March. Our surviving child is 4. I was the one watching the children at the time of the accident. Because I was alone, there was an investigation by CPS. Husband was granted sole conditional custody because we lived together.

This summer he worked for a moving company. Three-ish weeks ago he told me he had another job; going to Virginia and would be back in about 2 weeks. Wednesday night I called him-he was not in VA. He was in TN with a girl. He has been talking to this girl since September and planned to leave me. He talked about coming back to take our 4 y/o away with him. There is an emergency planning mtg. with CPS on Monday to grant sole custody to someone else. Hearing next Thursday.

Hello Freed,

I just wanted to say that I am so very, very sorry for the pain and anguish you are going through. The loss of a child is devastating, ((((((HUGS))))))
You are being incredibly brave and strong.
I hope that things go really well on Monday.

I am so sorry that your 'husband' is being a far cry from the man you need in your life right now.

Stay strong, you are in my thoughts

I am so sorry for the loss of your son. I cannot even begin to imagine...

Do you mean that sole custody would not be granted to you or your husband? I can't believe that CPS would look favorably upon a husband/father who just up and left his family. I don't know much about how this all works, but was his conditional custody set for a certain amount of time?

Sending you peace and strength...

Oh my gosh! I cannot even begin to imagine your pain. I am so incredibly sorry and wish I could give you the biggest hug. You have gone through more than anyone should have to go through. Stay very strong and I will pray that your son is able to stay where you are. You should not have to go through anymore pain. (((((((((HUGS HUGS HUGS HUGS HUGS)))))))))))
