Congratulations!  You have great advice. :)

Quoting ruderrow:

First of all, good luck!  I just received custody of my daughter on Friday with visitation for her father.  I was able to prove that I can provide a more stable living situation for her - mostly through home and job stability that her father does not have.  The judges look for that- remember, the judge's primary concern is the child.  Don't bring up things that are irrelevant just to try anyhow you can- that doesn't win you favor in the judge's eyes.  Proof, proof, proof!!!  Get yourself a good lawyer if you can- ask about payment plans if you need to, it does get expensive!  A lawyer will work from the angle of what he/she has gathered in their years of experience.  Good luck, and I understand what you are going through- mine lasted 9 months and since it is over I feel like I can breathe.

Welcome to the group.  Emotions are very normal both for a new mom, and especially a single mom.  :)

Glad you're here.

hi everyone.

So, its cold outside and its 2013.  I have been a single mom for the last 5 years.  I worked full time/have a full schedule with the kids and their activities.  I guessed the cold weather is bringing out a bit of melancholy in me today........feeling sorry for myself.  Overall, while life has been hard financially, I manage to keep my head above the water.  Most days, I am too busy to even think about anything or to feel about anything..............but once in a while.......something will trigger a lonliness I feel that tends to overwhelm me and I bet the blues really bad.

I don't know when was the last time I share my personal feelings to anyone.......I don't want pity because i don't believe in it.  The one thing that makes me sad is knowing that my sons are growing up without a father...........while they have all the love I have, I know it still affects them and will always be with them that they have no father figure.....................and it hits me when i am the only mother at their cub scout events or any events where all the fathers are there and then its me and my son......its moments like this that breaks my heart.

The idea of starting a new relationship is the last thing on my mine.  I don't think i can take the disappointment again, so I have pretty much shut that door.  I guessed, I am just sad and feeling a bit lonely and sorry for myself today and just need to express my feelings.

Welcome!

I think the cold weather has brought out some melancholy in all of us.  At least I've noticed a lot of people seem to be experiencing quite a bit of stress lately.  I'm sorry you're feeling lonely.  (((hug)))
