Single moms

I am a single mom of two wonderful children. I have to work two jobs to get by because their dad hasn't been apart of their lives much for the past four years. At times I feel so guilty because of that. At times my little girl cries because she wants to see her dad so much. I feel bad because my son doesn't have a father figure in his life. I know they are both hurting inside. As for me, I hurt inside everyday. If anyone has any advice for me, please feel free to share with me.

I can understand a little bit of your situation. I have 5 year old and I do everything for my son his father is in his life as far as watching sometimes and even gets him on weekend. What he doesnt understand is that I need help as well with food, clothes, shoes, etc... He is not on child support and I feel like he is talking advantage of me becuase I'm very independent and my son gets almost everything he wants. He is in a private school and I pay for everything. On your part you would be happy at least if their fathers where in the picture. I know that hurts be strong and pray everyday let God know your problems even though he already knows he just want you to go to him with your situations. I wish the best for you and your children...God Bless!

There is a single moms group on here that may come of some help to you. There is a lot of support there for single mothers and you may find some in the same situation as you are in. I am a member of it myself. Although I have not been in your situation personaly and do not know all of the details. Have you considered getting temporary assistance or taking the father through Child Support Enforcement to get the help that you need?
