Are you doing this alone?

Daddy's right terminated and you are doing this single mommy stuff all by yourself with no help from anyone.

I am doing this with family support but finacially alone and I was just curious who else was in the same boat as me :)

  • Im married but my dh is deployed. I have the financial support but not the family support, we live too far away from family.

  • My son's father hasn't been around in 13 years. His rights are not terminated because the courts denied it, no right to inherit if parental rights are terminated. He pays a whopping $46 a week and only because it is court ordered or he wouldn't even do that. I have been a single mom all my son's life. My parents help out when I need it but my son's care and upbringing is all on me. I honeslty wouldn't change being a single mom, it is the best to me. My son and I have an awesome relationship and are doing fine. It would be nice to have extra money to go on vacations and such but it's not necessary.

  • I am a proud single mom. Dead beat daddy's rights were terminated 6 days after my son turned 1 and with that, I told them to drop what he did owe for child support because I didn't need his money and probably wouldn't get it ever anyways. I have tried the whole relationship thing and just got out of one that was very dysfunctional, it was not easy but now I have come to the realization that it is a lot more fun and easier to be doing it alone. I hope that one day I will find that special person who will love us always and forever but for now, I am happy with it being just my son and I. My parents help watch my son when I need them to and they would do anything for us because we are that close but as far as taking care of us financially, I do it all on my own and I do have to say we are living pretty good.
