    Doing my best but its really hard esp when I had to come back home yesterday. I left her with her stepdad and brother, I wish I could have stayed but other circumstances forced me to come home.

    Life is full of so many nothing moments, then there's the few great and the few worst moments and this has to top the worst category. I feel for you man. Stay strong.
