Hi! I am 5 months pregnant with my fourth baby. The father and I dated for about 5 months, planned to get married, he met my other children, etc. Then, all of a sudden, this isn't what he wants, and he breaks it off. I have been a single mom for 5.5 years, and I have an excellent job, support system, etc. I know I can raise her by myself...However, I am seeing the effects of the lack of my ex husbands presence on my oldest daughter is having, ie..seeking extra male attention from coaches, camp counselors, and I am TERRIFIED, of how and what to tell my soon to be completely abandoned daughter when she asks where her daddy is. Oh, and today, I just found out that he lied to me again, and has ANOTHER daughter that I didn't know about. My daughter is number 6 (that I know of)!!! Also, legal advice: I will not let him off the hook regarding child support. Is it possible to terminate the father's rights, and still receive support? We live in Georgia, and no, I am not related to Honey Boo Boo, as bad as this situation sounds. Any advice is so appreciated!!! Thank you so much!!!
