Hi! I'm Jessica. I have a little girl that is 7. Her Dad and I have been divorced for almost 4 years. When we first split, he didn't have much to do with our daughter. I fell in love with another man whom my daughter adored as much as I did. We relocated 3 hours away and I married him. My ex only saw our daughter one weekend per month and she spent 90% of those weekends with his parents while he went out to bars. Within the past year, he has remarried himself, and apparently "seen the error of his ways". Now he gets her every other weekend and we are constantly fighting. He picks fights over everything and now says I took her away from him and has even told our child this nonsense. I worry when she is gone. She comes back dirty and wreaks of cigarette smoke. He picks fights and lies about things that happened during our divorce. The two weekends a month that I drop her off with him are nightmares, because he has to create drama. This is wearing on me emotionally and even effecting my current marriage.

welcome

Quoting Bree62012:

Hey I'm Bree a single young mother of an 8 month old girl. The father is not a part of our lives and I think it is best that way, at least with him. We live at home with my mother to help take care of her since her heart attack last year.

I'd actually decided to stop seeing him and this happens. I'm just looking for help, answers, tips and advice wherever I can get it.

Welcome Lisa!

Quoting Mom2CMW:

Hi ladies, I'm Lisa and the proud mommy of 4 year old Christian. Christian's father and I separated March 2011 and divorce final June 2012. He left and since that time 2 years ago I have been in survival mode. Some days and months better than others but since December 2012 I've hit a level depression that has been paralyzing. Significant factor in December is that I wouldn't let Christian spend the night at the hotel with his dad and girlfriend. since that time he has chosen to disown my precious baby due to his anger at me. He refuses to talk to him or answer any of his calls. I am now so depressed. I feel so guilty as this is all my fault. I'm angry. I hate him. I'm bitter. I'm resentful. I need your support before i fall apart.

Hi Lori, welcome to the group.

Quoting alanasmumma:

 My name is Lori- I'm a 28 year old single mom of 2 daughters (8 and almost 5.) I have been a single mom for a majority of their lives- even while I was married- my ex husband was in the military and was gone a lot and we separated 4 years ago. I was a single mom when I met him and have been doing things on my own since I left him. I recently became unemployed due to my company closing so I am having to readjust to being a stay at home mom- which is a big change for me since I have worked at least part time (minus a year and a half total) since I was 16. I am looking forward to connecting with other single moms since I don't get out much.

Hi Cassie.  Welcome!  

Quoting cassfrog7:

Hi!  I am Cassie.  I am Mom to two wonderful kids; Charlotte (about to be 5) and Grant (2 1/2)!  I was married for nine years when my husband decided that he didn't want to be married anymore.  I am still struggling with being alone and explaining things to my kids.

I live in Alabama and all of my family is in New Jersey.  I decided to stay here because I couldn't afford to live up there and couldn't imagine living with my parents.  I have been living on my own for three months now, and have not found a job yet.  I attempted to do the right thing by moving my food stamps from one county to the one I am in now, and have been denied here.  UGH!  I don't know what I am going to do!

I hate to complain, because I know so many have it worse.  I am just feeling very lost!
