    I am a first time mom to a two year old son.

    For the first year of his life, I really struggled with postpartum depression and didn't feel I was cut out to be a mom. Add that along to money struggles, and I was really a mess. I've stayed home with him for two years and now I have to go back out in the world and get a job...

    I have struggled most of my life with

    circumstances that were always so complex, I had no one to gently guide me towards the right direction. I figured everything out the hard way. When my child was born, I had just turned 18, I had no idea what the following months would bring me. It was extremely difficult. There...

    At That Moment I Came To The Conclusion That I Am Going To Do This By Myself.

    I have been a single mom

    since my little boy was 3 months old. His father has never wanted to see him since yet he goes around telling people it's my fault that he doesn't see him.

    I don't know what I did to deserve being a

    single mom of two. I loved their father for 12 years. Gave my everything to him. And after all the years I was still very much in love with him. Him and our family, home and life made me happy. I tried my best to do everything I could to make him happy. So I don't understand why...

    My boyfriend of 8 months

    and I broke up about 2 months ago. Recently, we reconnected and started hashing out what went wrong. One of the issues that came up was that I let my 4 year old daughter run the relationship. (Ex: If she didn't feel like going out her and I would just stay home. ) My boyfriend...

    I hate seeing my parents together

    while I'm pregnant and struggling on my own. I feel like I'm not a part of their lives and they almost rub in my face the fact that they're together.

    Okay well, I'm not technically a single mom

    but I might as well be. I'm 18 years old and I've been taking care of my 9 month old baby sister since she was 3 months old. I was forced to put my first year of college off so I could help take care of her but really it's just me. I barely get any help. I watch her about 18...

    Tonight is not easy. Tonight I am breaking down,

    losing it, allowing myself to ride the grief wave. Tonight I am telling myself that letting all the held in emotion flow out while I'm alone is ok. Because tomorrow I will wake up. Life will still be ******, your two precious girls will still be on the verge of homelessness and...

    My daughter's teacher just made my day!

    !! I'm doing my best and it shows. She said my daughter is a great student and great person. She said nobody deserves the credit but me and wanted to recognize my good job. I broke down after I hung the phone up because I appreciate a total stranger recognizing me. She doesn't...
