My bf and I started dating when my daughter was 6 months old. She doesnt see her biological dad (his choice). We dated for two years and I got pregnant. When my baby was 2 weeks old he woke up one day and decided he didnt want to be in a relationship anymore. That was his only explanation. There was no arguing before or anything so i was really caught off gaurd and had no idea he was having any sort of issues. He was always so great with my older daughter. Now he sees both girls a few times a week and eventually will start taking both of them on a regular basis. I appreciate him accepting responsibility for my oldest but am still so confused why the relationship ended. I never wanted to be a single mom again and was very honest about that from the start of our relationship. He knew i was looking for long term and eventually marriage. I've really been struggling with this new life and not having any time to myself. I do get child support for the baby but it doesnt cover everything. I work from home and work a couple of evenigs and one weekend day to try to make ends meet. I also stay home with my girls and watch my niece and a friends kids for money. I've also had to get public assistance, something I never thought I'd have to do.I feel like im running a million directions all the time just to barely make it. I know there's a lot here but i just need to vent. Any advice would be so appreciated! TIA!
