Hello, my name is Ashley and I'm a 22 year old mother. My daughter is 2 this months old. I have a girlfriend and we have been together for the past 2 years. She has done everything that my baby's father hasn't. Me and my baby's father broke up when I was 4 months pregnant, after he started putting his hands on me and I got with my girlfriend when the child was 1 month old. So my daughter knows me and my girlfriend as her parents. I'm not saying my baby's father isn't in my child's life but he is young and he would rather run the streets then to see his child like he should. He only see's her maybe 2 times a month. My question is: do you think it would be wrong for me to want to change my baby's last name to my girlfriends? By the way she calls both of us mommy...no need for the negative feed back about my relationship I'm just asking if it's wrong to want to give my child my girlfriend's last name. She is the one who takes care of her and does anything for my child since we started dating.
