I love your story, troubled as it is. It gives me real hope that sometimes the Church gets it right, while individuals are not so good at discernment.

I don't offer any advice, just for you to know that you are in our daily prayers and I hope that it gives you hope and blessings. :thumbs: :votive1: :votive1:

Since my last visit to i-church I am pleased to say I have taken my son to mass and I am very pleased to say he enjoyed it and had a million questions to ask.

I even plucked up with courage to inform his father that I was taking our son to a Catholic church. To which he replied, 'as long as he is happy'.

This was a reply I never thought would happen.

So all I can say is through the power of my faith, and through prayer, god must have given me the strength and courage to take him along with me to my place of worship.

I am also pleased to say I am getting Baptized at the Easter Vigil, confirmed and take my first communion.

I am truly thankful for all who has taken the time to read my story :-) ,

:cross: :angel:

Well I thought I would update you all on my Journey in to my happier Christian journey..

The Easter Vigil was beautiful and there were 4 of us taking part. We were welcomed most gracefully in to the Catholic community and We were all baptized. I was confirmed and received my first Holy communion :woohoo:

My mum and my sisters came along to support me which meant a lot to me.

Thank you for all your kind words and prayers.

My son is also enjoying coming along to mass. Which I am very proud of :redface:

:woohoo: :woohoo: :woohoo:
