A mother who walks away from her family is a thoughtless, heartless and a ignorant coward. Who is thinks of herself only.
When a women is blessed with a child , it's a true blessing, its a mothers responsibility to nurture and love that child unconditional.
Any mother who intentional leaves a child solely because it's "too much work" needs to seek a psychologist immediately! Keep in mind, It is okay to ask for help it not okay to abandon a child.
It is not normal or expectable in any way!
If you walk away from your child, that child may walk away from you, when you old,, lonely and full of regrets.
Please, Moms do not let frustration and times of weakness cause you to give up the best gift life can give you, your son / daughter.
My name is K and my mom walk away when I was 3 my brother was 2 and my Dad was 22.
She is now 66 is very sad which has made her mentally ill for leaving us 45 years ago.
Why have I uttered so words,

My bother and I grew up with my Dad and my father remarried.
We all wish the best for our mother but will never bring her into our adult personal life.
She will pass away slowly and lonely.

I agree with Evelyn. 20 years ago my mom left an abusive relationship with my father. She had no money, no home, no friends or family (she was alienated). Before this she tried to commit suicide even though she had 4 kids to think of. I remember asking her if we were not a good enough reason to stay on this earth. She didn't know how to respond. Despite this, I understand that she was at her lowest point and needed to be away from my father. She left us with him, but gradually we have become close again. My pain is still there but at least I know why she did what she did. Talk to your mom. Understanding doesn't mean acceptance of her choices, but perhaps it may help to heal some of that hurt. Ps I am a single mom now and I could never fathom leaving my child.
