My daughter’s father n I have known each other for most of our lives but started to date seriously in feb 2007…i got pregnant in aug, moved out my parents place n in with him til oct….and that’s when I came to my senses. His true colors came out once I got pregnant. His lies n sneaky ways became evident. We were engaged…purchased our rings..applied for a marriage license. I broke up with him four days before our trip to city hall to marry. All this taking place while I was a freshman in nursing school and working night shift as a nurses assistant.

Anyway my parents let me move back in with them…i had my daughter in may 2008..graduated from college in may 2009. And recently moved out n got my own place in may 2011 with my daughter. And….her dad jus had a baby in july. Weird to say tht…gonna take some getting used to.

I have custody n a child support order. But her dad doesnt have a car, steady job or stable place to live. Therefore I haven’t gotten any money since sept 2010 and we rarely hear from or see him. It is hard..to be the only parent to play an active role in my daughters life. But this is my life. Its very rewarding n im blessed to have the means to provide for my daughter as a single parent. N grateful for the help from my parents, friends, n aunts who all play an active role in helping to raise my child.

    “When self respect takes its rightful place in the psyche of woman, she will not allow herself to be manipulated by anyone.” (Indira Mahindra)

    You learned this at an early age, girlfriend; and your beautiful baby will because of you as well! You are awesome and never forget that, marcoujor.

    Oh goodness, I happened to see your post on another blog I was just reading and my eyes actually started to water. What you said took me back to a place I moved on from a long time ago. From one single mother to another I understand what u dealt with and what you are dealing with now (even though u didn’t really get into it). No matter how far I have come, everyday is a struggle. I have asked God for forgiveness and prayed for guidance and the strength to not have any hatred in my heart and so far so good. I will never look back bc I have too much living to do for myself and my son. Life is just too short to dwell on things I have no control over. I have learned that things and people are going to be what they are. Let me stop bc I can write a book! I just started my blog as well and even though I have so much to discuss, I couldn’t figure out what to type. Anyway, I thank you for sharing a little bit about your situation!
