Hello!

Recently my daughter’s father and I ended our relationship. At first I was worried sick about everything-living expenses, how I would cope on my own with bub, where were we going to live… With the added stress of being 3 weeks before Christmas. We found a place through the real estate with ease due to good tenant history, and packed up everything and left. We settled in, bub coped with the change a lot better than I expected, and I was able to establish a routine for the two of us. Don’t get me wrong, it’s hard and it’s lonely, but taking care of an eight month old on my own and stepping up and having to be responsible for everything was something I’d never thought I’d be able to do. I have a new found independence and confidence within myself that I CAN take care of us both and I don’t need anyone else to rely on.

  • Well done :) you and your bub will be much happier and it will show soon enough :) I went through this myself about 5 and a half years ago, although my daughter was 4 and not a baby, but I just wanted to let you know that there is someone for you out there who is willing to take care of you and your bub :) I didn’t think there was someone out there for me at the time but I married that man 11 months ago and he treats my daughter just like his own :) all the best for you and your bub, I hope you find the happiness you deserve :)

  • Backtrack to 1994 I had 3 children under 4, was in a controlling, abusive relationship, was quite young at 23. With my girl starting school, middle child starting kinder I upped & moved, found a rental place, enrolled Miss in kinder & master in kinder & began to live my life the way I wanted, free. Good luck hun :)
