    I live with my mom and grandpa

    but my mom is very verbally abusive and my grandpa doesn't speak English and gets very angry easy. I really want a motherly figure/ mentor who just loves me and doesn't judge me.

    I really want a family.

    I want to have a baby and I want a man to be there with me. I want to come home to my child and my man. I want to have a somewhat normal life. I just want a man dedicated to me and our child. It seems like it's so hard to find that :/
