Well, Let’s See How This Goes

My husband’s ex-wife actually replied to my email last night and it went a lot better than I had expected. She admitted that she has some issues and she has agreed to go to counseling. Whether she’s saying this just to pacify me, I don’t know. We will have to see where things go from here.

Honestly, I have no desire to control this woman’s life. I just want her to be a good mother to her children and to keep them away from unfit conditions. If she can learn what is and is not appropriate for children, then I have no problem letting them visit there. I just can’t, in good conscience, allow them to go to an environment where their emotional and physical well-being will be put at risk. If something were to happen to them, I’d never be able to live with myself. The things they have already been through are more than enough to keep me up at night.

Hopefully this is a step in the right direction. It is so much better for the sake of the kids if we can all learn to communicate effectively and if we can work out our problems like responsible adults. I really, really hope it’s possible. She is their mother. I hope, for their sake, she does get the help she needs.
