I am a 17 year old mother. I just recently graduated high school & am working. I also plan on attending college soon. My daughters father is in prison for 10 years. He went to jail while I was pregnant. I ended up talking back to my ex that i was with for 3 years, he assured me that he wanted to be her father and that he would be there for her. But he ended up leaving. I no longer feel that she needs a father, i dont even want a boyfriend ,any guys around because i dont want anymore dissapointment in my daughters or even my life. I know I was dumb and made a mistake believeing that my ex would be ready for that anyways, but i just wanted my baby to have a father... a family ): . Should i tell her about this when shes older? My family is very rebelious im scarred that they would even tell her. I even feel that i would be hiding things from her if i dont tell her... I JUST WANT TO DO THE RIGHT THING. This all came from me not having my father around. i felt a void for so long because he wasnt around! But my daughter filled that void. I dont want her to feel like this, i dont want her to have a baby to fIll a void from not having a father45. IM STUCK. this is always on my mind. I love my little girl so much, and it tears me up thinking that one day she'll know all of this and be dissapointed in me. Mad at me, even hate me. Shes all i have! i want to raise her right, I want the best for her. Any advice please!!
