  1. I am the child who watched her father do this to her mother. Me and my mom are doing a lot better. Almost 3 years have gone by and she's engaged! They haven't picked a date yet, but he has 3 amazing children that we love more than anything. I'm glad that he is out of our lives and thank god everyday that she is still alive.
