So 2 months ago now, my girlfriend, literally shoved our 3 months old son at me. She announced that we were over, and that she wanted nothing to do with the "vermin" that I now held. I knew from the first month that she certainly did not want the baby. She believed in waiting until we were happily married to have children. But that didn't work as planned per say. She was alright with sex before marriage, just not children. As we all know, condoms and birth control aren't always the most sturdy of protection against unwanted children. Things happen, and when one thing leads to another, there's the kid. I tried my damn-est to persuade her that we could together be good parents, but she'd have none of it. Now 5 months old, I love my son very much, and my parents help me as much as possible with their new grandson. It is tough being a young and single dad, but I love him enough to accept any and all challenges.
