It's simple. He lied to her.

He said he changed. She fell in love with his kids. He convinced her that with her by his side he could get his poor darling baby away from the evil ex wife. Sandra had the means to help and bought into his sad story. She also had a biological clock ticking that she probably didn't acknowledge. He's kind of hunky - even with the tats. Women do have the ability to romanticize a guy they're hot for. She believed him because she wanted to. He's a pathological liar and probably a narcissist Narcissistic personality disorder: Symptoms - MayoClinic.com
She fell in love with his kids, with being a mom, with being a family, and with him. He HAS to be a skilled liar -- every woman thought SHE was the only one.
It's too bad because she's such a sweetheart and she would make some man and his kids very happy. She's real, and she didn't deserve this. She wanted the fairy tale. Who can blame her.
Now - I hope she has lots of strong, wise, loving women friends around her who will not let her go back to him no matter what.
