Hi, I'm Audra. I am and always have been not just a single mom, but I am not just mom I also play the role of dad to my 8-year-old son. My son has never really mentioned or had a whole lot of questions why he doesn't have a dad, till this school year. With Father's Day this weekend, I feel kind of lost. Especially because he brought up Father's Day about a month ago. Stating "I can't do anything for Father's Day like all the other kids in my class." Talk about a gut wrenching moment. However, I have always taught him that he doesn't have and/or do anything less then any other child that has a mom and a dad. Plus, I have never bad mouthed his "sperm donor" to or around him. I just don't know if I'm going about things the right way. He is a very smart, kind, caring, loving, beautiful little guy and is truly my world. I also have a saying, "It's better for him to have no "father" at all, then to have a crappy one that is bouncing in and out of his life." Am I doing the right thing by him?
I am 28-years-old and don't really have any friends. I also haven't really dated since before my son was born. I feel very lost.
