Being a Single Mom...

February 24, 2010 11:23pm CST
It's hard to raise a child alone, but i had no choice. Because i love him, he's my only one. Even if his father is not here, i'll raise him to be a good child. To have faith in GOD, be good to others and not to hate his father. I can't promise to give him everything, but i'll promise to give him the best...

That's so sweet of you ROSCEL. I think that you are very brave and very firm about taking care of your child. You love him and he's the greatest gift that you could ask for. You don't need to have a partner if that person isn't worth it. I hope that you would be successful in caring for your baby. It's gonna be a hard road but I know that It's worth all of it when you get there. Good luck!

Sorry to hear about your situation. My cousin had the same problem a few years ago and what was worst about her problem was that she raised her first child without the biological father and after two years another child came to our family and still thes second child didnt have her biological father to take care of her too. My cousin got to take care of her 2 kids alone. My cousin has her own family now. Though she left her first and second child under the care of her mother, at least she was also able to find another family who loved her. I salute you for having a goal of giving the best for your child. I hope you two all the best.

Thank you so much! And i feel sorry too for your cousin. Well, lucky for her to find another family. In my case, I can't focus to find new one. I'm focusing on my child now. He's my only one, and I don't wanna get involve with someone else anymore. Good luck to your cousin and very happy for her that she found new love after all that happens to her.

It may seem hard at first but do not fret. Always remember that God will always be there for you no matter what. It may at times come out like He is making you suffer but remember God will not give you something you cannot take care of. Also, do not forget to take care of yourself. Along the way, you forget yourself at times but make time for yourself even just an hour or two a day.

Hi Roscel. I think that you can be a good mom without the father. I know that raising a child alone could be a tough one. But it doesn't mean that you don't have the capacity of raising a good child. Just bring out the best in you in raising the child. I know for certain that one day God will repay you for being a kind mother. I'm wishing all the best for you and your child.

being a single mom is a tough and a challenging job. Especially if at the same time you're a working mom. You are a mother and a father to your child. But i see to it that i'm with her during my free times..

Being a single mom is a tough and challenging job..especially if you're also a working mom. i can attest to that because i'm a single mom myself.
