‘i messed up’

Ricky says, ‘I admitted the affair because we weren't going to get back together. I'd made a huge mistake that I could never come back from. [The chances] of her ever trusting me again were stacked against me. She was permanently looking for things to mistrust me for.

My Andrew: misguided, but a good person A heartbreaking photo: but I want you to see it Glancing out the kitchen window, my heart jolted.‘Andrew!’I screamed, as my 8-year-old boy clambered up a tree, the pencil-thin branches bending under his weight.‘Look, Mum,’ he giggled. ‘Look how high I can climb!’ Typical Andrew. As curious as he is fearless. Ever since I’d adopted him in September 1996, aged 6, he’d been a daredevil. A risk-taker, an adventurer.Go fishing, and he’d be the one to get stuck in the mud!But for all his mischief, Andrew was a kind, loving boy.Always fixing things around the house, wrapping up gifts for us in electrical tape.Still, there was a troubled side to Andrew too.In care, he had developed mood disorders and depression.By…
