My name is Fredricka but my friends and family call me Freddie. I’m German born but, American bred. My family immigrated to America when I was 10 and we settled in Boston. At 21 I married my college sweetheart and began what I thought would be my “happily ever after.” He was in medical school and I worked full-time as a Process Engineer at a local Boston firm. After 7 years of marriage, when I was 8 months pregnant, my husband met and fell in love with a Nurse where he was doing his residency. And that is when life changed on a dime.
I survived the loss of my marriage, I’ve healed from the infidelity and I’m now in the process of carving out a new life path for myself and my daughter. I’m now attending BYU, working on my Master’s in clinical psychology. My divorce and the adversity that caused helped me find a new passion. It’s my hope to one day save marriages via clinic work with families in trouble.
My daughter is now 2-years-old and the light of my life. When I’m not at school, she takes up most of my time. Single parenting isn’t easy but, she and I have a strong bond that I don’t think would be there if not for the divorce. I guess you could say, weathering that storm together helped us stick like glue. I thought my life was over when he left. Now I know, it was just beginning.
