My partner lost his fight with depression by taking his life last July, now I’m raising our beautiful boy 8 months old along with 3 children from previous marriage. We weren’t married- planned but…I’m lost with no help whatsoever. Only my oldest daughter is helping me. Financially and emotionally. When it should be me supporting her- she’s just 17. My angel. My best friend. Every where I turn I’m send away become we weren’t married, after 7 months still waiting for the court to decide to put fathers name on birth certificate. But now I know that even that won’t help me with anything. At least my child will have his dad’s name.
I guess I just want to give a high five to all single parents- it’s tough but it’s worth it. Keep doing what you’re doing.
