‘I’m cutting ties with you, mom. This is not the life I want for my children. I’m setting myself free.’ I awoke to numerous texts and calls.’: Mother battling meth addiction 3 years sober after wake-up call goes viral

“At 16, I was pregnant with twins. ‘I promise to help you raise them.’ Days later, you ended up in jail. I cried for you as they prepped me for an emergency C-section. I desperately needed you there to hold my hand. You missed my graduation, the birth of my children. I spent years wondering how you could leave me. My love could never keep you sober. Then, I wrote my goodbye letter.”

‘Awww, your poor husband.’ I have 7 daughters and work full time. I’ve heard this comment a thousand times.’: Mom feels ‘blessed’ for all-girl family despite judgement

“I don’t always get enough sleep. I spend my ‘free time’ cleaning up messes. My husband doesn’t get to watch all of the sporting events he wants to watch, and he has learned to get the little ones ready for school by himself. We don’t do it all, we do enough, and sometimes that is everything. I don’t, under any circumstance, feel bad for my husband that we were blessed with 7 girls.”
