How can I be both Mommy and Daddy for my amazing (surprise) daughter?

[deleted account] ( no moms have responded yet )

My baby is 5 months old and her father is not at all involved in her life. I'm probably sensitive, but I've noticed that many books or songs geared toward young children feature 'daddy' roles. I anticipate that in the future, my daughter will wonder where her 'daddy' is. How can I make her feel loved while explaining that her father is absent? How can I be both Mom and Dad? It hurts my heart to imagine her feeling abandoned.
