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.
