How do you view military women that became a mom before they went in? Do you feel they are neglecting their child or helping to make a better life for them? I have a baby and she is the best thing in my world. I don't know what I would do without her, but I still want to go into the military. I will be hopefully going in a year or sooner. Everybody is so negative towards me because they keep saying that my daughter needs me, and everything like that. I don't know what to think anymore. I don't want her to feel like I am neglecting her, or that mommy doesn't love her because she is never there. She is 6 months old, so I was thinking that if I start now, she will be too young to realize and as she gets older it won't bother her so bad. I would like to hear your views on it. Also, if you are a mom in the military, how do you feel with leaving and everything like that? Thanks for the advice.
