Hello, I am asking for some advice. My daughter is two and a half years old woh where does the time go? I am a single teen mom trying to start college and provide a better life for my child and I. Not going into too much details about the father of my child, but the both of us have a rocky past relationship. I never intended on keeping my child from him, I felt as if it was the right thing to do. He was abusive to me during my pregnancy and I left him and moved into a wonderful house for women and children. After I gave birth to her we tried to restart our relationship and within a month we began arguing. At that same time the fathers mother found him a job in a different province, need to say the long distance relationship ended poorly. We lost communication with each other as the last time we spoke ended poorly, both of us saying hateful things to one another. It was evident things between us were not going to work, I wanted him to come back to my daughter and I province but he had many charges against him. The grandparents resented me for pressing charges on their son and havent also seen my daughter in two and a half years. I have done many great things for my daughter and I soley despite the situation I was in. I graduated from high school and started at my local University, my daughter attends daycare daily and life seems to be perfect. Over the past couple months the father and I have been talking through FaceTime, we dont know how things can work because he has an amazing job and is really doing good for himself. He does not want to come to our province because he will face jail time. Just recnently his mother (my daughtes grandmother) contacted me and wished to see her, We established the first visit just a couple days ago. I am torn between my feelings, past experiance, and what is right for my daughter and myself. Being a single mom is a full time job ontop of attempting to tackle school. Everything in me says it will be great for my daughter to meet her grandmother and aunts, but another part of me is a little worried.
