I am sorry to hear of your situation.
Until such time as a Court orders you out of the home you can return to the home freely. It is your house and you are allowed to live there.
With respect to abandonment. Abandonment refers to more than just leaving the home. It requires you to leave the home and leave your dependents without the essentials e.g. food, clothing and shelter. The fact you go home each to day to feed the children is indicative that you have not abandoned the family.
By leaving the residence however as part of a divorce your spouse might get the home. This is the down side of one spouse leaving. It has nothing to do with abandonment it is simply logical to allow the spouse living in the home to keep it.
