would you do it again ?

No. Because my children need to know what a healthy marriage looks like so they can have one of their own. When people enter a marriage all there ideas of it come from their parents and if they don't know what it looks like they will not know how to have a healthy marriage. Children are damaged by divorce and carry it forever passing the damage often to their own children

i'm doing it again my lil girl is coming up for a year and i'm 24 weeks pregnant. my lil girl's dad has nothing to do with her i tryed to get him to see her but he just ignored me all the time and the farther of the baby i'm carrying couldn't care less about me or the baby he wanted me to get red of it he told me i had a choice i kept him or i kept the baby i almost went threw with getting red of it but i desided that my daughter would get more out of a baby brother or sister than a bloke that just isn't worth the air he breaths.

do what, have another child by myself? if i felt my daughter was missing out on a sibling i would. most definately. ive already told her father that even though we r TOTALLY over i would get him as 'sperm donor' if i feel she'd b happier having a bro or sis.

I don't think many women would ever PLAN to be a single parent. However, I would go through my marriage and divorce all over again if it meant I would still have my son. The joy he brings me far surpasses the sadness his father did!

If I knew then what I know now about how hard it is to raise a child alone - absolutely I'd do it all again!! My son is wonderful. Having said that I would never have a second child, whether alone or married, but then I had a horrendous pregnancy and I'm far too old at 42 to start all that again!! I was told I could never have any kids, so my son is a wonderful bonus and having more would have been against the odds anyway!

When I had my first child I was 17. I was greatful that my mom and grandma where there to help babysit so I could finish school. But I had to work a 40 hour week to support my son. I had to pay my mom and grandma for the babysitting. His father left a month after he was born so I had no help financialy or emotionally from him. I think that if I could go back and do it again, I would do it at an older age. An age that I could have provided better for my son. Maybe after I went to college and found a good paying job. I love my son with everything in me. I just wish I could have given him more then he had when he was younger. Only now that he is 11 have I been able to provide a nice home in an excellent school system. Before we lived by the projects that he had to walk past to get to school. A school that was not that great.

Most definitely!! My son is the joy of my life!! I would do it all again in a heartbeat...even with all of the struggles! When he says "mom, I love you, you're the best mom in the whole world" and gives me a hug, I know I've been blessed by God!! Children are a true blessing, and CAN turn out just fine without a father in their life!! We attend church regularly and that has helped quite a bit. Good luck and take care!

Would I be a single mom again? I hope that when I plan to have more children it is to an excellent HUSBAND this round, but if that should fall through for whatever reason; yes, I would be a single mother again if it meant our family would be healthier without papa.
