So, I was married to my childhood best friend, he had a newborn baby when we got married... I raised him, he is 5 now. Also, I have had multiple miscarriages, and twins who were stillborn.

My best friend and I got divorced, it was final a few months ago, we now live in seperate states, this is going to be my first mothers day without my son, and this is going to sound stupid, but I feel sad that noone is going to remember me tomorrow :( I dont want gifts or anything, I just want to spend time with my son, and that isnt going to happen. 

I dont know, I just need to vent.... Sorry, I know this sounds childish.

Aww thank you, I would rather be anon because I have some family on here, and I dont want to deal with the "You are so selfish" "You arent a real mom anyway" drama that my family is so keen on :/

I'm sorry they're not very supportive. Because whether you gave birth to him or not you raised him as if he was your own and IMO that's a mother.dont let it get you down. Treat yourself tomorrow for the years you did be a mother to that child. Screw what everyone else has to say about you or he situation.

Because I told my ex that I wanted him to be old enough to understand it, and make the decision for himself. My ex completely agreed, and it is still a possibility in the future, I have visitation, and talk to him on the phone all the time :)
