Please help: Single mother dealing with absent father favoring one child over another
Hi, I am a 22 year old single mother with a beautiful baby girl who is 11 months old. Her father is not in the picture, and also has another child only 4 mos older than the one he has with me. My babys name is aniyah jaide her sister by another mothers is named ava elizabeth. I have been struggling with the fact he basically abandoned aniyah since i broke up with him,( we just werent working out and he was adding onto my stress along with not wanting to help out financially) we had struck up a deal that if he sent money out of each oaycheck same as he pays child support to Nicolle for Ava then I would not turn him in for child support for aniyah. he didnt follow up on his part so I finally broke up with him and turned him in in november. i am waiting to be called in to do DNA testing if he denies she is his child and does not sign the paternity acknowledgement form. I am also in college at Universoty of Phoenix ONline majoring in Elementary Education to become a teacher. I am also in the middle of moving out of my mothers house into my own apartment. I have so much pent up anger and stress that I cry myself to sleep so many times making sure my baby doesnt see me upset. I just need advice or maybe other moms who are going through the same thing. He has went back and forth between me and the other "baby momma". At one point me and nicolle were friends and we were looking forward to getting the girls together to meet each other and play as sisters should. She got jealous when she found out i was workking it out with our kids father and she renigged on everything and called me so many names and said I was a bad mother. Now she is with him. And every facebook status he is tagging her in it talking about what a great time he had with "his girls". He has pics of Ava everywhere but none of Aniyah and its like Aniyah doesnt exist anymore to him. It breaks my heart he is favoring one baby over the other. Someone please help me. I am so sick of hurting and struggling feeling like no one understands what I am going through.
