I am a single parent of a 5-year-old boy. He is living with me and I am not receiving any support from his father since day one. I have raised him, sent him to school , provided his needs and wants. We are living in my parent's house. My mom's taking care of my son whenever I'm at work and she's the one taking care of my son in school. Now, I have a boyfriend. Our relationship is a secret because my family doesn't want him. I am now two months pregnant, still confused on how will I tell my parents with my situation. Pretty sure that they will get mad, right? But my bf and I have talked, he said he is willing to support our child no matter what happens. We are planning to tell it to my parents this March. What I am scared now is on how will I make them understand my situation? Btw, my bf wants to raise our child on his own because he knows that I also have my son that I must support. I don't know what to do, I am totally confused on what should i do first, or tell or plan. We don't have plans in getting married because my family is against him. I am scared on how the public would see our situation. I am totally scared on what would happen in the future. I don't know what to do. Been talking to my friends with my situation to ease the pain, it has been helping me though. But at night, i can't sleep enough thinking that my family will reject me or something. Please help me, should i just marry my boyfriend? or should i allow that he'd be the one who'd raise our child? Thanks. I'd greatly appreciate every comment and response.
