Ok so this is my little rant..... Apparently I am a HORRIBLE mother according to some on this site because I am a single mother of a child with special needs. This prevents me from finishing school and working. I have no one available to assist in caring for my child while I am doing the "things" i need too. I get county assistance like Food and Cash but, I have no choice in the matter because of his disability prevents him from attending childcare. Does this make me a bad mom? I plan on finishing school as soon as my Dr. approves him to go back to child care and when my new child arrives. My new child can't be on assitance for the fact that I am with my future child's father and we will be living together. I would rather not live on assistance but, really 50.00 a month from my ex to support my child is enough? I'd rather live off assistance then be homeless. Sorry if I offend any single mom/s if she doesn't get assistance but, my Dr. has told me my son is not ready to go back to child care. Am I being selfish? I don't feel that I am for the fact that in about 2 years my Bakery will be up and running and I will be gladly pay 2x as much just so I feel better about it. I hate living off assistance I do but, my child comes first. Anyone else agree? If you disagree do me a favor and don't respond!!
