  • hey more power to you if you can do school and take care of your baby and hopefully a job as well. don't let anyone tell you different, you have to do what's right for you and your baby. get away from negativity

  • Go for it! You obviously want better for yourself, and your daughter. Go, do it.....Otherwise you will look back in 10 years and regret the things you could have done differently, and this is a biggie! This is a chance to make YOUR life and YOUR child's life better. Never, ever let anyone tell you differently! If you have the drive and ambition, do it. Do NOT wait. Make the move now, while you are young. When people pull negativity out it is out of the disappointments in their own lives. Some people just do NOT want others to succeed. If you have the opportunity, have the drive and ambition, and have the means, then go. I moved to Nashville Tn, from Alabama following a divorce. I knew no one, I had no job....I just did it. I needed a fresh start and I was 45 years old! It was THE best decision I ever made. No, it wasn't easy. Yes it was tough. But otherwise I wouldn't have met the wonderful man I am married to!
