For the past 3 1/2 years, when all this was going on, I was home a lot more with pregnancies, then the children and my school…I felt stupid as more things were revealed – how could I not have known anything? The word betrayal isn’t strong enough. I felt like my whole world had fallen apart. It seemed that my world as I thought it was had never existed. I felt embarrassed for having been so deceived. I felt betrayed by many people around me.”
