Ive never thought that i would be a single mom. The thing is Im very i love with my childs father but he dosent want to change his prioritys for me and his soon daughter. We once lived together but when everything started to go downhill I moved from our apartment in Alabama back to Atlanta with my parents. He is so bitter and upset he dosent want to have much of anything to do with me nor the baby. His family is not supportive at all and he kept the pregancy a secret for at least 3 of my 4 months. My family is very supportive and although they show me plenty of love and support during this time I still feel alone. I work as a hairstylist and im constantly on my feet . . .im also takin online classes. It feels like my life is consumed of work work work and planning. I just want love. his love. I want things to be they way they once were but I know thats prolly not going to happen. He says when the baby comes he will support her but we will see. . . just pray for me

Oh sweetie, I hope that things work out for you. I would suggest not fretting too much about your baby's father right now. You need to focus on you and on your baby. It's going to be a tough road, but you're very fortunate to have your parents' support. You're obviously a very hard worker, and I don't doubt for a second that you'll do a great job. Just don't be ashamed or shy to make sure that you get child support out of the father! Parenting alone is tough enough, but it's even tougher if you are paying for it all yourself.

Good luck! I don't doubt for a second that you're going to be okay.
