Hi I have a beautiful toddler, she just turn 2 yesterday and I couldn’t celebrate her birthday cause we don’t know anybody here, I am from another country and I miss my family a lot, my husband works everyday and I have no friends here, I take my daughter to the parks but it’s very difficult to make friends with other moms since they are only on he phone and seem they barely give some attention to the kids on the park, I am a housewife, I have nobody to talk beside my daughter and it sucks live in a foreign country, would love to make friends so I joined a gym but even there women’s are so cold😿😿😿 please any advice

It's hard to be out and meeting people with a toddler, but it is possible. Volunteering, even a couple of hours a week, puts you in contact with people that either share your interests, or need your help. You don't say what country you're from, but it's clear you speak excellent English. Could you provide bi-lingual help to some organization, that would let you bring your daughter along? Hospitals always need volunteers, and they often have day care, where you could leave your daughter for a few hours. If you're religious, churches have many volunteer and other groups. I don't know if any of this helps, but I'm recommending a place where you can contribute with other people, maybe Moms, that will be grateful for the help.
We're pulling for you. Please keep us up to date on how you're coming along ... and enjoy that beautiful two year old (at least until she learns the "No!" word -- just kidding).

Sometimes you take what you have & make the best you can with it. Your daughter still turned 2 with or without the celebration you would have loved to have given her.

Honestly your Lonliness & feelings are giving you tunnel vision. Set aside your sadness although it is completely understandable. Think of life & your present situation as an adventure & there is plenty of time later perhaps to go be in your home land with family.

Right now think outside of the box. Make a small party for just you, dad & your daughter! Its a day you will always share with her. Despite what circumstances you are in always make sure she knows how special she & her birthday are to you.

Making friends is a slow process. See if there might be places of worship (similar churches etc) that have functions you might attend or if there are others in similar situations.
No matter what, things will change & new things will develop some better some not. There is no "destination" in life its a process some of which we can help to determine how happy we are when it and life isn't how we wish it to be.

That is my "normal"...when life isn't going so great. That's why & when I look at my "adventure" I have ahead. Things can still be fun especially with a child & husband to love

Hi! We've all been there. I took my toddlers to My Gym, semi-structured play with friendly instructors that involves Mom. There is lots of inter action with other parents and their children. Invite another mom to coffee for a chat after, and see where it goes. Good luck!
