Being A Single Mom

I can still remember the feeling when I found out that I am pregnant. It was June of 2004 when I noticed some changes in my body, two weeks after visiting my boyfriend then, who is working in another place. I immediately told him about the changes I notice and that I have a hint that I am pregnant. I didn’t hear any complain nor any clue that he is not going to marry me when I finally confirmed that I pregnant. In fact he seems to be happy. But I was wrong because he didn’t come back the day he promise me to be back and I only realized it when I was at the labor room for he was nowhere to be found and I could not contact him in his mobile. It was then when I started to worry, I started to ask myself if I can support the needs of my child if in case the father will abandon us.

That time I already know that being a single mother is not easy, I know how hard it is because I saw it with my own mother. She needs to leave us and work in another country so that she can support our needs. Fortunately I have a very supportive family that help me raise my son and later on I found a nice boyfriend who accepted my son as his own and help me financially.

To those single moms out there you don’t need to fret for I found this awesome single moms website. The website is especially design to help single moms find financial help, scholarships and grants. One can also find helpful articles on how to get assistance such as housing, utility bills and food assistance in your state. So if you’re a single mom like me, is the perfect site to visit.
