My daughter and I have lived here for over a year since my ex left, he doesn't contact us or want visits, just pays child support. So i have sole custody. I love it here in this state where we live, don't have any friends though or know people to get together with. My little one is 2 and all of our family live a state away, five hours. In the next few days i need to decide to stay here or move back to the state where im from. i feel torn because i grew up aaway from grandparents and cousins and hardly know any of them. here i am doing it to my little one. but, since my divorce which was when i was pregnant my family hasn't really helped except for my grandma and aunt. my husband cheated and i left him. we tried to work it out a year later and it didnt even last a year, so here i am out here where he lives near his family and i have none. i want to keep going and enjoy the things she and i do together but he wants nothing to do with her, my family doesn't visit or call or even send my little girl birthday or christmas presents. its not that they cant afford it. i just have spent the past three years wondering why but no one ever says. in the meantime imwasting my life worried that they dont show my little one any care. cost of living there is more than here and my little one would have to go to daycare. here im attending school fulltime online and home with her. we go to the library for story time, dance class, gymnastics and she goes to preschool two days a week. really trying to get her involved with other kids and people. its just hard not having grandparents around to treat her special. when i visit, they act like we are imposing, i even bring a huge box of food for her and myself to not impose on them. but still they don't do anything with her or for her while we are there. its very costly to rent a car to stay a week there. i dont know to just let it go and keep trying to push her on them or write them a letter as to how i feel and then go on with my life and if they want to be a part of it then they can come see us. any advice??
