Hi! My name is LaQuantae and I am 23 years old. My son, Kymani, is 10 months and he is my very first child. We have lived on our own since he was about seven weeks old, well to be more specific we've had our own place since he was seven weeks old but we've been alone since the day he was born. He father, who was my best friend for 6 years prior to my getting pregnant, left us both (and good riddens!) but now that I've seemed to worked out some sort of stability I feel more unstable than ever. Things are tough. Money is tight and being alone in all this is the hardest part of all for me. I love my son and I love being a mother but lately I just find myself feeling more and more overwhelmed. I am trying to find joy for myself outside of being a mother, but the day to day grind of just being a single mother makes that task so much harder.

Chelsea, 

I think you should trust your instincts. If you feel that this man is going to treat you and your daughter with the care, love and respect that you both need/deserve you shouldn't feel ashamed at all and you shouldn't allow anyone to let you feel ashamed either. It's hard finding a person who will accept a child that is not biologically their's so as long as he is good to you and your daughter you should hold on to that happiness you find with him. Your daughter is young but as long as you are cautious about the compnay you keep around yourself and your daughter you should be fine. I hope this helps! :)

Hello. My name Nikki and I have a two 1/2 year old girl named Evelyn.  I've been separated from my ex for almost a year. Yesterday I found out he's going to have a baby some time this year. That's one of the main reasons for me joining. I can't comprehend how he can bring another life into this world when he cant even manage to take care of his first. I've had a rocky relationship with him since the beginning, no abuse. Him just being a moron and sooo irresponsible. (Thus the other kid)

Anyway, I can manage a laugh. He lives in his car, his family wants nothing to do with him. He's the one who makes everyone elses lives look that much better...

Probably a horrible person for laughing. But this is cause and effect. Just that simple.

Hello all! Long time CM member, but have been away for a while...maybe even years. anyways, I'm back and looking to reconnect, make some new friends, and just have some fun for me. 

A little bit about myself: I'm 31, divorced, single mommy to Liriel (6) and Charis (4) full time college student working towards my AAS in Business Administration. I just moved into my own place EVER after renting two bedrooms in my mother's house for almost three years. it's exciting to be in my own place and yet stressful at the same time. Juggling all the bills, school, and trying to make sure my girls are getting the love, attention, and care they need has me exhausted most of the time. 


Um....not sure what else to share, but look forward to getting to know you all a bit more as time goes on.
