I was a single mom going to school all day and working at night. I finally graduated from school and got a job that wanted me to continue to do the same thing. I finally had to make a choice. Give up my child or my job. I did eventually found a different job and a wonderful husband to help out. The job I have now is great and allows me to take time off for my child that is now 17. Now I find myself back tracking to help her cope with things and circumstances that I should have dealt with when she was young. But hindsight is 20/20. We survived that but I still feel guilty that all we did was survive and not thrive. I would have done things differently if I could have. Just remember that you only have short time with you kids......
