I am a domestic violence victim advocate, and I would like to help. While I can't work miracles (our system is set up in a way that very often victims end up severely injured or dead, even though they have tried to do all the right things) Here is what I would recommend. Hopefully you have documented all of what you tell us in your story. That can help. Contact your nearest domestic violence shelter program immediately and tell them your story.

Even if they say there is no room in shelter, they can help... Often the police will help cover the cost of a hotel for a few days, and space may open in the shelter, or they may be able to help you get to another shelter where you can be safe. Staying in your situation is not an option. You need out now, before he makes good on his threats. I also know that having an order of protection doesn't mean the police will take things seriously. You need to act now, for yourself and your children.

When a man abuses the mother of their children, and their children the mother has EVERY right to defend herself.

Sadly, this is not an unusual situation. People blame the victim for not leaving, without any realization that leaving is extremely difficult (sometimes almost impossible) and once she leaves, the abuse continues, in new ways...

Best of luck to you and your children. How can something like this happen!! Watch the movie ENOUGH with JLO if you haven't seen it. & I agree with the post by Kristy Whitehouse wholeheartedly! Please try to get involved with a battered woman's shelter for your kids & your sake!!!

Go to a place he does not know about or a center where abused get help, your story will go viral. I wish that I could help you, but I'm in Sweden and not US. Bless you and your kids! You are a great and strong woman and mother! I bow with deep respect for you, having survived all the ungraspable terror that you have and still standing. Keep up your amazing spirit! Namaste.

I am so sorry for your family. The system is not protecting you or your children and it sounds clearly they don't plan to. Have you gone to a safe house in your city? The police department has to let you know of one. If they don't call the next city over till you find one. Also I know of a book called Times Up it gives advice to you on how to save you and your childrens life. I pray you find help. Never give up hope!!! You and your little ones are in my prayers.
