D- Word

Today the final decision has been made. We'll be filing a divorce. As soon as finances allow I will be looking for a small appartment for me and DD and I will be trying to go back to work in September.
I feel sad and numb, but I know I will survive. I'm sorry for DD that she will have have to go through this, that she will lose her family, but I can't do anything to prevent it. I didn't want it to happen, but sometimes there's no choice.

Gosia, I am sooo sooo sorry to hear this. I know you have been trying and this had to be one of the most difficult of decisions to make. Please know that I am here for you if you need a shoulder or someone to vent to. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers. Things may look dark now but they will get better as you move on in your life.

I'm so sorry Gosia. I've been through a divorce myself and I know you will get through these tough times. Your DD still has a family, it's just not the "traditional" arrangement and she is obviously loved and well cared for. She will be OK and you will too.

(((((Gosia)))))) I am so very sorry to read this. I have followed your blog and posts for awhile and I sincerely hoped you would be able to work things out, but it is not always possible. You and your family will be in my thoughts and prayers; I know we don't know each other well but my heart goes out to you and I too would be happy to listen or offer whatever comfort I possibly can.

I do commend you for taking action once you realized the marriage was not going to work; my parents stayed together for 9 more years after realizing they shouldn't be married any longer and staying together "for the kids" causes more harm than good, trust me. Best of luck to you.

{{{{{Gosia}}}}} I am SO sorry. I know you've tried so hard to make it work and you've given up so much. Please know I'm here if you need a virtual shoulder to cry on or to let off steam. Take care of yourself and DD. x

Gosia, I'm so sorry too... I know how much you've been trying. You will have all my support and thoughts during this diffcult time.
But if you've come to realize that things really can't go better between you two, it will be better for your daughter. It won't be a traditional family but I'm sure it will be much less destabilizing for her than living in tense and unhappy atmosphere with two parents that don't go along well.
I'm sure you're doing for the best - you've been pondering the situation for so long.

Look ahead Gosia, things will get better for you. You're ready for a new start and that is a good thing in itself.
Lots of hugs to you and your daughter. You WILL be happy Gosia! And never forget you have plenty of friends ready to help you, listen to you, support you, and simply be there for you.

{{{{Gosia and DD}}}}

As others have said, I've been following along as well, and I know that this wasn't an easy decision to make. And it probably seems like the worst thing in the world - your family is breaking up, you're worried about DD and finding someplace to live, and you think that you have failed.

It's not failure when you try and the other party just isn't willing to make the effort. And as Isabelle said - you won't have a traditional family, but it will still be a family for your DD - the best one that you can make for her.
