    I need chains broken..leaving Scott was so hard, we had been married almost 20 years. He had cheated on me so many times, he had sexually assuallted an 18 year old girl that had been living with us, our daughter’s friend. He was abusing our kids, so I left him. He got our kids, he took them away from me. He had a lawyer, I didn’t. I had faith in God it would be okay. This happened about a week before Christmas. My faith in God really got shaken up, but I know He is there…I am looking for Him. I need Him. I need my kids. I just don’t understand why He let me lose them, completely. I haven’t seen them since before Christmas. No visitation. I have kinda understood God is waiting on me, but I still don’t understand for what…please pray for me. After I lost my kids I lost the will for anything for awhile. I’m coming back, and I need God.
