Hi! I'm Erin. I have 3 children all boys. I have been divorced for almost three years now but I do have a boyfriend. The father of my children has up and moved 3000miles away... It has been really hard because I don't know what to do. My kids are upset but only when they have to talk to their father. Their day to day life is great, they are happy and my boyfriend is great with them. They are all buddies.... I have been struggling with a lot because on top of my ex just leaving, he also hasn't paid me any child support. I'm trying to do everything I can do and I've been really lucky to have great family and friends around but it's not like they can help with everything. I really just need to vent because life is stressful lol

Hi my name is Emily.  I have 2 daughters ages 5 & 1.  I've been divorced from my oldest daughters father for 2.5 years now and the father of my youngest (my ex fiance) is a dead beat heroin addict currently in jail... so I've basically been a single mom since my divorce.  I got laid off from my job in January and since I get unemployment decided to take some time to be a stay at home mom for a couple of months before going back to the grind.  I just felt like my girls could use some mommy time since we've been through so much.  My ex husband is an excellent father to his daughter... but I feel so alone with my youngest daughter not having the same love and affection from her father.  I just don't want to feel alone anymore and would love to meet other moms like me.

Hi Cindi, welcome to the group!  I agree that it can be emotionally hard being a single mom, but it helps to have a good support system.

How old are your children?

Hi Erin, welcome!

It sounds like your kids have adjusted well, overall, but have you considered counseling for them?  Also, it sounds like you need to file contempt on your ex for his not paying child support. (((hug)))

Hi Mandi, welcome!  It sounds like between you and your son you have a few pretty serious health issues.  How is your son handling his new diagnosis?  Is he on any medications?

Welcome Emily!  I'm glad you're able to spend some time with your girls before your oldest starts school and you go back to work.  What kinds of things do you like to do together?
