I’ve been a single mum since the day i conceived…..my daughter’s father was never a one night stand, but he’s never been proactive in her life.
I had cervical cancer at 18 and was on the pill (to regulate my periods & cramps) so when i fell pregnant, as hard as i knew it would be (and has been) i decided to keep my child and have never regretted it.
Up til now (my daughter will be 4 in August), it has been reasonably ‘easy’ to answer my daughter’s questions as to her father, and she has accepted that she, myself, and our cat Pepper are her family, but lately the question comes up more and more, ‘how come i don’t have a dad?’
I’m running out of things to say and would love some input x
