I'm sure many of you will be able to guess who I am. There has just been a lot of bashing on here tonight, & I'd rather it be here than in my inbox. Here's my story, or the pertinent parts anyway: I met my now-fiance when I was a 14 year old high-school freshman. We clicked immediately, and have been committed since. We were together for almost a year, & I'd been on birth control for over 2 months, before we made love. I'm not irresponsible. About a year later (my junior year, I was 16) our daughter was born. I took my pill every day, at exactly the same time. No one's sure why it happened. After she was born, we found out that she had severe special needs. She has lots of doctors for different reasons & requires a lot of time, energy, care, & love. This will most likely always be the case. Nothing that we did or could have done caused this or would have changed it; doctors have told us this many times. Through all this, there was never a thought of DF leaving- we were happy (as happy as you can be while shocked & terrified :) We both graduated high school- I was 3rd in the class & already had quite a few college credits under my belt. I'm now an honors nursing student on scholarship at the community college & work an online job from home. DF works as well. We're saving up for a place of our own; my parents are happily letting DD & I live with them until then, as long as I do well in school. My little miracle girl, who shouldn't be here for 2 separate reasons (my birth control, plus doctors say my body should have rejected her because of the root of her special needs) will be 3 soon, & everybody who meets her falls in love with her. I think I'm doing alright, all things considered- exhausted most of the time, bitchy & snarky when I get mad, unreasonably jealous sometimes over little things, a little bit passive-aggressive, and I'm on some low-dose anti-anxiety meds... but that's about it. I love my man, I love my daughter, they both love me (well, seem to, anyway :) & I'm doing well in school for something I love to do. I guess my question really is.... what do you think of me? Please be honest here- feel free to use the anon button if your opinion is negative & it makes you more comfortable. I'd just like some true evaluation of my progress as a mother (from what you can know over the internet, anyway). Thanks for reading if you've made it this far!

What's to be bitchy about? You are a hard working mom - if you left out the part where you are a crack smoking drug dealer who's pimping out their kid for a fix then I guess that would require a smack down! LOL Keep on truckin little sister being a mom is the best job in the world and also the hardest. Even super moms with super kids have doubts, fears etc. don't sweat the small stuff and jealous negative people are the small stuff in life. Here's a little christmas, xmas, yule, or whatev gift early - giving you unconditional love and acceptance, peace of mind and body, and the strength and courage to persevere against the odds.
Good Luck and Best Wishes
