I was a single, teen mom growing up. My first was at 16, and my second at 19. Both fathers were drug addicts and were not active in my daughters' lives. At 24, I found my (now) husband and he quickly became a wonderful father figure for the girls. Since then, we have moved states and my daughters' no longer see their fathers. Recently, we have been having financial disagreements with them, and when it is brought up that I raised them both by myself with next to nothing, they think I am blaming them for it, and they say that it was "my decision" to raise them both single-handedly. They say my "candidates" for fathers was a poor choice, and they blame me for them not knowing their fathers. Is this really my fault?
