My names Tiffany I live in Greenville SC. Im 21 years old with a handsome baby boy who is gonna be 6 months this tuesday:) Im looking to make new friends cause the ones I used to have disappeared after I got pregnant and the one true friend I thought I had has drifted away cause she thought it was too hard to hang out with me with a baby. So here I am hoping to make new friends:)

:) Thank you, Christine. Dedicating my life to her is the least I can do.

WOW Candace you are such a strong person! There are so many people out there that would have given up easily. It is sad that people don't understand what it's like to have a baby until they have one themselves. They don't understand what a wonderful feeling it is to have these babies in our lives.

It was too much for him to handle, so he dropped my daughter and me off at my parents' house on Christmas Eve of 2012, two days later he sent me a text saying that he would give me full custody of our daughter if I gave him a divorce.

dang you are one strong momma!! I couldn't imagine doing it without my boyfriend, but he's like a roller coaster lol some weeks he's great and others not so much lol we mostly get into over him not showing me appreciation lol But i just don't see how people can judge or leave a medically disabled baby. He's perfect just like every baby is :) Why did your ex-husband leave? if you don't mind me asking

Right? Babies are wonderful. My daughter has a trach and a feeding tube, and so traveling and doing stuff with her has to be planned. It can't just be done on a whim, and my used to be friends hate that because I used to be so spontaneous. I can't be now. They don't get it.

I'm so sorry your friend did that to you. My daughter was also born early (26 weeks) due to my preeclampsia. Not only did all of my friends bail on me, but my ex husband (my daughter's father) bailed on us also. It's been rough for sure.

wow thats terrible!! yea the girl that was suppose to be my "best friend" bailed on me after she found out I was pregnant and told me she would support me and be there for me through it all. I was in and out the hospital with high blood pressure, and pre-term labor and she never once called or checked up on me. but after i had him we hung out and went to the mall and she seen how hard it was with a baby cause you have to make sure he's got enough food and everything else. our trip was cut short cause he started crying and she literally left me standing in the mall by myself cause she was embarrassed so i just told he to take me home and haven't heard from her since. people these days are too worried about how they look in public and its sad. I can't believe your use to be friends would do that. Cause I know I never would. I love all kids lol

I'm sorry your friends bailed on you. It's unfortunate that people take something as wonderful as a baby and use it as an excuse to stop being someone's friend. I completely understand though. I have a medically disabled child, and my friends find it embarrassing because "she's not normal" and stop hanging out with me.

We tried giving him some rice cereal but he threw it all up. So I'm going to give it another week or 2 before I try again. So are you a stay at home mommy too?
