I am 8 weeks preg with my ex boyfriends baby. I was on bc but obviously that didn't work. He and I were only together a few months but everything was perfect I thought up until he blindsided me with a breakup saying he never got over his ex. I haven't told him I'm preg even though I have known a few weeks. I had a miscarriage at 10 weeks a few years back and have been dealing with my own feelings and how to tell him. I didn't want to throw this on him while I was still processing the whole thing myself. He has told me he loves me. I was falling in love with him. But then last night I got the call I wasn't expecting and he said it wasn't fair to me that he still cares for her so he is just done with our relationship. I already have kids. 3 out 4 are getting older and such amazing young adults. Financially I'm not stable but always get by so I'm not worried about money. I just don't know how I can emotionally go through this alone. At this stage in my life I've already experienced so much pain and heartache. I am very loving and need the companionship of a healthy relationship. I'm broken in so many ways but still somehow believe in love. Now this. God help me through this time of my life. Because today, home from work after crying all night, I don't know if I can get through the day let alone a pregnancy and raising a child alone. :(

Hi Kaylee: Been there down that...and proud to say that my daughter Kaylee is one of the biggest blessings of my life. I was 42 when I discovered I was pregnant...and my only son was graduating from high school. A little shock was an understatement. Now I couldn't imagine my life with Kaylee. She has brought be so much joy. I was so worried about raising her on my own and when she had questions that I had no answers for, I was so heartbroken and truly just wanted to make it all better. I wrote a children's book for her to explain the absence of her Dad, but it has been so healing for me as well, as the deeper meaning of this story, sets the stage for the idea that she truly was "meant for me" and that our family is perfect just the way it is. You can read a little about our life on our website www.abovethetrees.ca
Hang in there Kaylee!!! In time as you search for the deeper meaning of this situation, you will feel it in your bones...that it too was meant to be. Everything in life is the opportunity for growth. Reach out to others and cheer up, knowing that you too, were meant for this child.
God Bless & Love and Light for a healthy and happy pregnancy
Sandra
