It is just my son and I. I am Claudie, 27 and have one son Nico, 21 months old this month. I left his dad when he was 4 months old and the last time his father came around was when my son was 6 months old. We do not hear from him nor see any child support...as I am sure is the song sung among some of us. I am almost all alone in this, my family not being much support. We are currently looking for a new place to live, one that is emotionally and mentally healthy for the both of us as we are currently living in a "cold" environment to say the least. I just want to meet other moms in my situation and gain some emotional support through this hard time. This forum kind of comes as a life saver right now as our living environment has taken a turn for the worse. My son has had a rough life so far. Born with a abdonminal deformity - Gastroschesis - has been since repaired however it is where there is a whole in the babies abdomin and their bowels and major organs are outside of the body. He was a sick infant and since then his health has improved. We are currently undergoing phsycological evaluations for his horribly abnormal sleep patterns and behaviors that seem to get worse the older he gets. He is the sunshine of my life and I can honestly say with out him today I do not know how I would get through my days. He is my heart!
