Are you kidding me? I'm really sorry you don't like CA, but why should your children suffer because of that. You're not a carefree 18 year old anymore -- that all changed when YOU decided to get married and start a family. I'm sorry it didn't work out as planned, but that's the case for many people.

Your children need their father -- and if you moved at least one would never know you. And imagine the trauma you'd put your 6 yo through. Absolutely wrong.

Nothing's to stop you from going -- but keep this in mind. Once you get through this difficult time, do your running away and get settled with a new life in wherever, you'll (hopefully) look back and wonder what you did. And then it'll be too late.

My stepkids were taken away from us, out of state. We lost the battle to keep them and the toll it's taken on those kids is unreal.

Think about this: my 6 yo stepson started calling mom's new boyfriend his "dad". If you could live with that -- that they forget who you are and start thinking of you as an uncle or family friend who visits once a month then perhaps that says something about your desire to be a father.

Reading your post made me furious -- my husband would give his left arm to be near his children and you're willingly moving away. He's stuck here for career reasons (and he is the sole support of his ex wife and children) so has to stay. It tears him up daily -- all the things he misses, the involvement by telephone only in their lives.

Don't leave your kids.
