When I found out I was pregant I decided to accept it and do what I had to do. Since she's been here I've steped up to be a good mom by putting her first and providing her with her needs. At times I feel so blue, miss understood and everything in between. Being a single parent is hard work especially when the load is all on you. I get no breaks because I have her each and everyday by myself. It hurts when men can carry on with thier lives and deal with their childeren if or when ever they want.

Often I cry because I'm so alone. It's not fair that many woman have what you want "a family" when all you have is a kid. Can only take it day by day

I can't even imagine depression plus being a single parent. I wish you strength. Do try to find any minutes you can to care for yourself. As she gets older, there will be some time. Hugs! I admire you so much for being the best parent you can despite everything. Stay strong, and be sure to get help when you can!

Being a mom isn't easy. I can only imagine how difficult it must be to be a single mom. Hugs.
