Hello, I'm a single mother of 2. One is in heaven and the other with me everyday. While, pregnant I made a promise to my children that I would them proud of me. During, my pregnancy I tried hard to make things work between my children father and I. Yet, my hard work didn't pay off. Once, I was able to work I started working but due to the fact that my body was not completely healed to do such work I then returned back to school. The first year or so returning back to school, I kept a 4.0, got a job, and even put in effort to make sure our daughter at least seen her father. But, it went to the point where I was tired of being only one putting forth effort, broken promises were being told to our daughter by him. I did not want that for her. I try inviting him over to spend time with her but it never falls through. He calls making false promises. I have repeately ask him not to do that. I explain to him the cause and effects but won't stick. I have tried everything from keeping to my promises towards him and children, to going broke trying to put forth an effort so he can be apart of her life, to being talked about by my family, friends, and parents to point i feel no love, to dying emotionally, and feeling trapped. Is it wrong for to want a normal family for my daughter? I'm kind old fashion and I know that single-parent homes.and singlemotherhood has become the new.norm, but I can help but think about how it could be or if only he took the time to listen or if only i knew what I'm doing wrong other than tring to stick to apromises that I know will benefit my family that I created. so tell me what should I do? Where should I start? An I wrong wanting my daughter to.havre the experience of having normal?
