    It is almost 2 am in the morning and I can’t help but write something to express how glad I am that I can finally speak out and possibly have replies as opposed to communicating with walls. It’s been 5 months since I had my boy but tough at the same time doing it alone. Only the heart warminga smile on his face gets me through the days mostly coz I know that I can’t afford to be weak, I rather must be strong for both of us.

    There’s so much I want to say but all in all I just wanted to express the fact that am glad I joined this group.

    Glad you have found the same comfort as me with this wonderful charity x

    It is amazing the strength you can find when it is for the sake of you child, it sounds like you are doing an incredible job with such a little one. I recently became a single parent to my two girls who are 2 and 4 and it has been devestatingly hard but I have found strength and solace in making the most of having so much time with them both.

    Feel free to pm me if you ever fancy a chat x

    Thank you so much for the comforting words. I can only imagine what you went through, however its really good to hear that spending time with them gives you strength. We live for them, just same way my boy comforts me. Just can’t wait for the day he will call me Mummy….

    Really grateful to this charity.

    Hi. Thanks for replying.. Don’t take this the wrong way, but I picked you out as I had a German shepherd called Tara who meant a lot to me and most of my passwords include the name .. ūü§ó

    How have you coped over Christmas etc? Was it OK for you.

    lol, no offence taken at all. Christmas was rather sad coz I was on my own and just my boy. But I decided to focus on the positive side of things, went to church and came home only celebrating the birth of Christ and that I was in a position to. All the same am grateful for having him at least. You, did you have a good time?

    I was on my own as well with my two boys. This is my second Christmas after my separation and I had them for the second half of Christmas day and boxing day. We had a nice time but it still feels and highlights the loss.

    Nice to hear you concentrated on the positives.. How long have you been on your own for?

    • First of all, do you **** if I ask whether am talking to a single mum or dad? Not that it makes a difference am just curious. The truth is at some point one feels like it’s too much but the smile on a child’s face tends to mend some aches. It’s nice that you also had your little ones at least and I know what you’re talking about when you speak of the feeling of loss ans generally happiness before. However, am still learning to believe that it gets better with time. I guess am allowed to hope. I have been alone for 2 years now..

    Yes sorry. I am a Dad, Paul.

    I’m almost the same as you, approx 18 months now and even though you’ve got on with life, sometimes it just slaps you around the face and it all comes flooding back.

    I always thought, marriage was for life and never doubted it for ten years anyway.

    My boys are 12 and 9 now. How old is your little one and if you don’t mind, what happend to you?

    Yes of course. I haven’t used this site before so I presume it is private messaging?

    Sharma, I have been there, pregnant and alone but you seem to have friends and family around you that support you in one way or another. Rejoice in the fact that you have that company because it always helps to have someone around. Yet again, church is a good place to be and like you said your Pastor makes it fun so the little gets to have fun too.
