My daughter is 3 months old, and has never been away from me for more than five hours at a time. Her father never even made one phone call throughout the entire pregnancy and I have been doing it on my own for the past year. And I LOVE it. A few weeks ago though I got served papers. He is taking me to court for joint custody. Out of nowhere. He now has her overnight once a week and every other weekend. I am so scared of what this will do to my daughter and how she will handle it. It breaks my heart. I am literally crying every day worried sick. She's not going to understand what is going on.. all she will know is that she's not home and that mommy's not there. If anyone else has gone through the same thing I really need some advice right now on how to cope with her being away from me for so long. It is heartbreaking to say the least. I know that I have to eventually find a way to handle it, but right now it seems like the end of the world.
