Little Girl Talking About Saving Her Mom
Two years ago I came home with a footlong sub from Subway for my husband. He was upset because I should've known to get him two. He tried suffocating me, covering my mouth and nose with his hands. He was arrested and had to go through 6 months of domestic violence classes.
I hoped that the classes would fix his issues. But, you can't change a sociopath. The charges against him were dropped by the courts. No reason was given. As soon as his probation was up, he became abusive again.
I stayed because I was worried that he'd get custody if I left. I thought I was able to protect my children from him if I was in the same house. I was wrong.
He attacked my daughter with a bat and broke her arm. He was arrested again and he's currently out on bail. He's not paying his portion of the bills he owes to keep us from being homeless because he wants me to give up so he can try to take custody of our daughter.
We're going to be homeless 9/12/13.
