PLEASE DONT GIVE UP, NOT FOR YOURSELF AND YOUR UNBORN BABY! YOU DONT DESERVE THIS TYPE OF TREATMENT. PLEASE CONTACT YOUR LOCAL WOMENS SHELTER WHO CAN PROVIDE COUNSELING, HOUSING, ASSISTANCE, ETC FOR YOU AND YOUR CHILDREN. THERE IS HELP OUT THERE FOR YOU! THERE ARE PLENTY OF OTHER PEOPLE WHO CARE ABOUT YOU AND YOUR CHILDREN WHO ARE WILLING TO ASSIST YOU IN THIS CHANGE. YOU DONT WANT TO LOSE YOUR BABY DO YOU? OR YOUR OWN LIFE? THIS IS A CONTINUAL PATTERN FOR MEN LIKE HIM. HE CAN NOT CHANGE ON HIS OWN. DONT THINK HE CAN, OR BELIEVE HE WILL. I WORK WITH MEN LIKE THIS ON A DAILY BASIS. PLEASE THINK OF YOUR SAFETY. YOU CAN GET A PROTECTION FROM ABUSE ORDER AGAINST HIM, FIND HELP IN YOUR COMMUNITY WITH HOUSING, ETC. KEEP THINKING POSITIVE AS MUCH AS YOU CAN, HAVE FAITH! YOU DESERVE BETTER IN LIFE FOR YOURSELF AND THE FUTURE OF YOUR BABY. IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS PLEASE SEND ME ONE. I WISH YOU THE BEST OF LUCK!
