Trust me, my son is my biggest priority... that's why I'm selling the horses instead of boarding them... I'm putting my son as my first priority so I'm parting with everything "extra". Living with my parents has provided a wonderful, loving, and stable environment for me and my son, but definitely not a permanent plan. My (ex)husband still wants visitation rights, but I know that we're better off away from him. I don't believe in divorce, but a verbally abusive relationship is no place to raise my son. I've been strong through everything else I've been through, but this step is like pulling off a band-aid. I'm an RN, so I'm not rich by any means, but I've given up on horses for about the next 18-20 years... Jacob, my son, is so beautiful and worth every sacrifice I don't regret anything, and there's nothing I would redo... I just had to have a few tears over a goodbye with close friends. I just hope they go to good homes.
