Update on pregnant sd in abusive relationship

So exhausted's picture

Sd is doing good. She did leave her abusive boyfriend. He showed up at her work and assaulted her but security was able to get him and they have put measures in place at her work to keep her safe. She is escorted to and from her car when she goes in at night and when she leaves in the mornings. They have her at a work station now that is between security so anyone coming into the hospital would have to pass security before they reach her desk. She had ultrasound earlier this week and she is 12 weeks. We were able to get her things out of her apartment without any conflict. Dh has not went to jail for killing this idiot so that is good.

I took her to the family justice center after this happened and she filed a police report and is now getting counseling and she has been going every week so far. She seems stronger and I think after the ultrasound she realized how real this baby is and it seems like protective instincts are kicking in. I sure hope so. She looks a million times better now that she is away from him. I know her heart is broke but she also says she feels free again so I hope this will stay positive. I’m sure it’s not going to be an easy road but we are on a good track this week anyways. Thank you all for all of the advise and help a few weeks ago. I can’t tell you how much it means.

You and her Father deserve the credit; I hope she will continue to accept your great support.

Glad to hear she is doing better. She will be ok, with your good parenting skills. Bless you. Keep us posted.
