Needing Advice...Child's Safety...With Other Parent. Please

I have been going through a nasty custody battle for 2.5 years. I was so ready for the emotional roller coaster to end. Was being the imperative word. The reason why I left my son's father is because he was emotionally abusive and becoming physically abusive. He'd burned my pajamas & journal one night and tried to leave me stranded in the mountains, he pushed me down to the ground with our son in my arms, he tried backing up the car while I was holding oru son and I was standing next to the seat with the door open....more

Coming Home (The Story of my House Fire)

On December 17th, 2003 it was a cold winter’s morning in Morrison, Colorado a sleepy little town on the Front Range. I woke up at 5:00 am and began to brew coffee for the drive up the mountain to go skiing for the day. I stumbled through the house looking for my gloves, hat, and neck warmers.

I know diseases like polio or small pox are rarely seen nowadays...but there are more and more children who are not getting vaccines and what do you think will happen then?...more

A Mom's Embarrassing Moment After Sex...

I am a 33 year old single mother. I started dating a young man who manages an Auto Shop about two months ago. After work this evening we met at his house and hung out for a little bit and ended up having sex. Before I allowed him to push himself into me I told him to hold on for just a sec and pulled a tampon out and threw it on the ground next to my side of the bed. (I am not on my period.) I had almost forgotten it was there or I'd have taken it out sooner....more
