Divorce

We’re getting one.

I don’t have a whole lot else to say other than that, right now. I filed the papers yesterday.

I hope to continue this blog even though I haven’t been great about posting lately. Just going through some tough times right now… and don’t really feel comfortable about putting it all out there on the internet. Not that I haven’t shared anything and everything here before, but this just seems like it should be private.

This is hard. This is so, so hard. But I know that better times are coming someday and that is what is keeping me going.

    Oh Julia, I'm so sorry to hear about the divorce. For what it's worth, you have our ultimate support here on the blog(no matter how much/little you want to post about this)! Even though we haven't met in "real life", I care so much about you and Caroline! You are lovely and fabulous and inspiring, and good times absolutely WILL come again — you are too good for them not to. Keep pushing for everything you know is right for you and Caroline. You are the best Julia, and you'll be in my thoughts. Hugs, MJS

    my heart just sank too. I am so sorry sweetheart. I can't even imagine. I hope you and Caroline have all the support in the world. I was raised by a single mom, who did it against all odds, so just know that you will get through this and things will get better some day. so much love, xo

    So sorry to hear about this. I've always been impressed how you handle school and a baby (often times by yourself it seems) and know you'll get through this too.Stay strong Mama!

    I'm so sorry. I've commented a few times before, but just to remind you I'm the one who found your blog by searching "unexpectedly expecting" – you can guess why. I got pregnant two months after you did. I wasn't married, but I was with the man I thought I'd marry. We're still together now, but we are on very, very rocky ground. Having a baby is hard. Having one you hadn't planned for is harder. Add to that Tyler's long absences and your going back to school full time, and I can only imagine the pressure you've been under. All this you know, of course. What I hope you also know is that there is a group of strangers out there who have been following your story from the beginning, and who are and will continue to be supporting you as you go through this. Thinking of you, Bex

    I haven't commented in forever but check in on your blog occasionally and have enjoyed reliving some of the good, bad and ugly of dental school vicariously through you……I'm just so, so sorry to read this post. As a girl who understands just the academic pressure you're under (not to mention being a mom and a wife on top of everything else which I didn't attempt to tackle until long after school was over) I'm hearbroken for you and Caroline and send a million hugs your way. Keep putting one foot in front of the other…better days are sure to be ahead.Hugs… :(

    ((HUGS))!! It's okay to feel sad, frustrated, angry, mad, happy, tearful, joyful and everything in between all at once. Nothing says it better than getting ((HUGS)) from your readers that feel your saddness & want to take away your pain. Just remember, your little pot of gold at the end of the rainbow is sweet Caroline. She'll give you lots & lots of ((HUGS)) & **KISSES** when you are feeling a bit gloomy. :)

    Julia, I'm sure this is very difficult for you. However, I know that you would only make the best decisions for yourself and sweet Caroline. I asked about you a few days ago, and I'm so sorry to hear this. Feel free to email me for anything.
