hello, my name is Heather and I am very recently an officially single parent. My son is 2y. 8m, and is my joy and strength. His father and I were together for 17y, since HS. The year I became preg. he started his own business. I was supporting us, which was agreed upon. But, during my early pregnancy he started not coming home, on a reg. basis. I don't know why I stayed so long, I tried to leave @5mos. preg, but came back. Needless to say his disappearing acts became more of a regular thing...To find out later it was d/t a drug problem. I left April 4, after I told him 2 days earlier if he ever didn't come home again it was a deal breaker. And, must to my dismay 2 days later he didn't come home. He always had excuses and I just needed.... But, my son and I are temporarily living w/my father. I am starting work again soon. And I cannot believe how much better my son is doing w/out my stress and an in and out daddy. By the way, my ex hasn't seen our son since 4/3/07...Doesnt this seem weird to you? It does to me. You couldn't keep me from my son EVER. Anyway, it would be great to hear from anyone. It is a little lonely and VERY scary. thanx for listening.
