Its nice to find a group like this!!! I need some support lol, but don't we all? I've been a single mom since May of this year officially (but in my theory for years). I have two beautiful children, Ashton who is 6 and a half, and Cora who is 3 and a half. I live in Medicine Hat, Alberta, Canada. It has been a very wonderful and at the same time a very rough period for me since May. I am going through quite the lawyer battle with my ex right now, as he feels that even though we are sharing the kids, he feels he doesn't need to offer support or pay for anything. I am currently trying to get sole custody of them during the week as he works shift work and is on call 24/7 (I can adjust my hours since I'm the boss) and they are being tossed around to his family/friends, and I am told I'm not allowed to know who is looking after them when it is his days. It has been quite stressful at times, but also quite liberating for me knowing that I am ten times happier then I ever have been. I am supporting myself and my two children, and that is an amazing feeling of power. I look forward to chatting with many single moms and I say all the power to us :D we are some tough and strong women.
