Melissa wrote, “Until then, I had no doubt that I was a good mother. My life wasn’t perfect or traditional, but motherhood was my top priority and I worked my a*s off to give my own two kids the best life possible.”

She continued, “But then something happened that put a major crack in my self-confidence. Bo called to tell me that he was moving back to Texas, and then he said the words that hit me like a sledgehammer: Dakota wanted to go with him.”
