Your ring is beautiful! Good for you getting out and making a fresh start for yourself and your kids. I wish you and your kiddos good health and good fortune moving forward.
I think, if I were to get a post divorce ring, I’d wear it on my middle finger, to remind myself of that joke “Picked the wrong man, gave him the wrong finger.” 😛

I traded in my wedding band and a pink sapphire ring that was given to me for my 5th annviersary after my separation and got a birthstone ring! (sorry it’s a huge picture–I am not tech savvy!)

I’m so sorry Bee. You’ve endured a lot. You sound like you are much happier.
I love the ring idea. I think it’s a nice reminder of how strong you are 🙂

janelka25 : “due to daily stress during second pregnancy my little baby boy was born with very rare Denys-Drash syndrome”
You can’t blame yourself for a genetic anomaly. Genetic mutations happen all the time, stress or no stress. Humans evolve through genetic mutations, so really they happen all the time. All of us are carrying around genetic mutations in different genes. Most of the time these mutations are harmless, however sometimes they cause genetic diseases/disorders.
Make no mistake that Denys-Drash Syndrome is a genetic disorder caused by a genetic mutation/abnormality in one particular gene (WT1). There was nothing that you could have done to prevent it–it was an accident that just happened. This is not your fault.
