Apologies

I’m sorry…

  

I just wanted to post a short note to apologize to all of you for my lack of comments on your  blogs.  As you know, my husband petitioned for custody of  little Emma.  Here in New York you resolve the custody issue first, then the divorce follows…totally insane.

The pre-trial is on Tuesday and since we are still living together, the situation is very tense and difficult for me and my nerves are shot at this point.  My mother had to to be admitted to the hospital yesterday and underwent an emergency heart catheterization and had a stent repaired that had been blocked by scar tissue.; thank goodness it was not more than that since I am unable to leave the State of New York with Emma until the close of the custody action.

I try to get around to see everyone but have not been my diligent self lately.  Please keep us in your prayers; this is the most difficult thing I’ve ever had to go through and Emma is all I have here and to lose her would be devastating. 

I promise to get back to visiting you all on a regular basis as soon as I can think more clearly and get past this trying time.  

I also want to thank each and every one of you for your support, your concern and your friendship…it has gotten me through the dark days and it means so much to have all of you  as my friends…you’re the best!

    Earl is my name 2 Dumbaskwrote:I am the husband:You folks don\’t know what you are praying for!Rhonda is certainly allowed to leave the state and with Emma for visits (2 weeks or there about).Rhonda\’s mother has been suffering ministrokes and issues with diabetes since we have been married (7 years) both our mothers suffer from issues of being in their 70\’s.Rhonda\’s mother has family nearby (1 grandson recently graduated from college residing with her & Rhonda\’s sister that maintains a very watchful and caring eye on her within 1 mile)Earl the husband filed for custody to protect Emma from online predators, more than 1Rhonda was planning (not pretending) to leave with Emma & meet in another state while I was gone on my upcoming out of town search for work.Thank the God ………….you people that are sincere and pray ……….that Emma is safe and that I caught wind of this, before her well being was put at risk.I ask you people, to pray, not for Rhonda nor I, but for Emma, that she can evolve out of this to have a family that cares and will not risk her being for pleasures or wants. I love Emma, I ask God that she is safe and loved.I can only hope that through all of this Rhonda has realized that Emma is more important than the personal desires she has pursued.I read these posts and I can see sincerity in them, it is a shame the ones that knew about this, didn\’t come forward for Emma\’s sake and well being! SHAME on the person that endangers a child!!!!!!!!!!!

    THIS IS HARRASSMENT FROM MY "HUSBAND" (see below). HE IS NOT IN MY NETWORK BUT CONTINUES TO FIND HIS WAY IN HERE TO POST COMMENTS AND NOTES. HE HAS INFORMED ME THAT HE PLANS TO EMAIL EACH OF YOU WITH HIS VERSION OF THE TRUTH. I INCLUDED NO DETAILS IN MY POST ABOVE BECAUSE I DON\’T BELIEVE IT BELONGS HERE ON SPACES. THE DISSOLVE OF OUR MARRIAGE IS THE FAULT OF BOTH OF US AND I\’M SORRY THAT ALL OF YOU ARE HAVING TO BE WITNESS TO THESE PRIVATE MATTERS. YOU SHOULD ALSO BE ADVISED THEN WHEN YOU REMOVE SOMEONE FROM YOUR NETWORK/PROFILE, IF THEY DO NOT DELETE YOU FROM THEIRS, THEY CAN STILL ACCESS YOUR SPACE AS EVIDENCED BELOW. FOR THE RECORD, I DO NOT HAVE PERMISSION TO LEAVE THE STATE WITH EMMA, IF I LEAVE THE STATE OF NY TO GO SEE MY FAMILY IN VIRGINIA, EMMA HAS TO REMAIN HERE IN NY AND I WILL NOT LEAVE HER. ALSO, MY MOTHER\’S CONDITION WAS NOT A RESULT OF A "MINISTROKE". THE MAJOR ARTERY TO HER HEART WAS 95% BLOCKED. I NEVER INTENDED TO TAKE EMMA OUT OF STATE WHILE HE AWAY LOOKING FOR WORK AS HE HAS IMPLIED AND IF HE CONTINUES TO POST COMMENTS TO MY BLOGS, I WILL HAVE NO CHOICE BUT TO CLOSE MY SPACE.

    Hi Rhonda, I think gettting new private space sounds like a really good idea. You certainly don\’t need this harrassment and further more, he needs to know that none of us are listening to \’him\’. I think there is something written in the CODE OF CONDUCT about harrassment on Spaces. We\’re all standing with you my friend. Luv \’n hugs.

    Lets make something abundantly clear here, I am not blocked from her space, I have her on my profile, she is my wife, not my ex…..she lives with me in our house with our child. There is no other side of the truth, there is the truth. For everyone on here that likes to stand in judgement of what I have done or am doing, I would suggest tending to your own affairs period. Rhonda made her bed with the decisions she made and the direction she took, if the court is a concern for her, the so be it. This is the reality of doing things you shouldn\’t do.

    Rhonda ~ I haven\’t been making the rounds as often as I\’d like either lately, but I wanted you to know beyond a shadow of a doubt that my thoughts and prayers are with you. Your Emma is a precious little angel, and God watches over His angels. He\’ll watch over you and Emma too. Having gone the whole "ex-husband fiasco" myself, I\’m not even going to comment on "Earl." My opinion would only add fuel, and what you don\’t need right now is more stress. I agree with everyone here — just close this Space, open another, and take your friends with you. I had to, and your true friends will follow. Spaces is for fellowship with those who care for you, not a place for recriminations, threats, and for use as a personal arena by someone who prefers to engage in high school behavior. God bless and keep you, Rhonda. Let\’s not lose touch.

    I don\’t know about closing your space. I know it would be easier in a lot of respects but it is your beloved space and HE is invading it. I suggest you report the harrassment and ask Spaces to remove you from his network once and for all. Just a thought. Hold on to your rights and power. Jx
