Thank you to all who have prayed for me and my family. Since the beginning of October, I have been here in Washington State with my son as he navigated a nasty divorce. His wife got caught cheating while he was deployed through phone records with someone she said she would no longer see after a previous affair. She fled the state with the kids and the babysitter reported it to base command. They reached her and threatened her with kidnapping and immediately flew my son home where I flew out to be with him. She returned, and then went to NCIS and CPS and accused him of marital rape and child abuse. I remained in Washington except for a few trips home to be present as a supervisor so he could have visits with his kids while the investigations took place. After months and several court dates, he was cleared of all charges, it was proven she lied because her stories to the various agencies were different, and some of the dates she gave he was not even in the country. Yesterday, our lawyer wiped the floor with her lawyer, my sons child support was cut in 1/2 because she lied about 800 per month daycare when it turned out she was getting through Dept of Social Services and was only paying 15. He now has more time with his kids, is paying less, and his good name and honor restored with NCIS and CPS saying she was vindictive and needed a mental eval. This mama is now leaving big foot country with a cat named Quazi that I adopted while here on a red-eye flight tonight for Virginia to reclaim MY life. I have to start over on my emergency savings fund after paying an enormous amount for a fantastic Lady shark lawyer and may seek a part time job. My hubby handed over well into the mid 5 figures to a son that is his only by marriage to me when my sons real father would not help out at all. My hubby also supported us by buying all our groceries while here, took care of my parents and horses in Virginia while I was gone and allowed me to be gone 5 months to be here for my son. I am so blessed. Not exactly survival monkey topic, but it was about survival. Headed Home!
