I'm a first time mother expecting my daughter in late September. I'm a nursing student at a university that is 2 hours from any family. I lived in a dorm until the end of this semester. My school offers a Scholar House for single parents, but technically I'm not a single parent, her father, my fiancé, is very much involved with my pregnancy. It is a wonderful place for housing the only problem is that my fiancé cannot live there with us…single parenting. We have applied for city housing so it wouldn't cost a arm and leg to live there but there is a 6-12 month waiting list. I am going to apply for county housing June 17th, and that has a 3-6 month waiting list. I've found places for 350/month but utilities aren't included. I can't have my child and pass her back and forth from where I'm going to school and my hometown. It would feel as if she was ripped from my arms at birth and I don't think I could emotionally handle that. But I also can't keep my fiancé from her. I think all I really need is support and reassurance that everything will work out in the end but I'm so afraid that I'm not going to be able to live with both my child and fiancé.
