Single Mom But Not A Single Mom


My name is Shawntell and I have a 4 month old son named Levi. He is my world he is my first child. I want more someday.

Here's my story. I have been with my son's dad for almost 8 years. I'm 21 and he's 20 his name is Talan, he plays basketball and plays at CU in Pueblo in CO.

When I first found out I was pregnant he told me to abort our son. He didn't want to be in a relationship with me and he had another baby on the way and he ended up lying about it. We ended up working out a relationship and got engaged and everything.

Six months into our pregnancy he tells me he's been cheating. He was there through somethings. He was there when I gave birth. Everything was going fine until 3 weeks after I had Levi.

A girl calls my mom a week later and says he doesn't want to be a relationship. He's not ready. He knew he didn't want to be in a relationship with me he didn't even want to have a kid by me and he should have used protection.

I ask him to buy stuff for our son, he doesn't. Christmas was the first time my son has seen anything from his dad's side of the family. He comes and see's our son but he not there financially and physically most of the time. He asks about him when he's in town he comes and gets him but I live still like a single parent because I do everything for my son everything on my own.

Hi Shawntell!

Congrats on your son! Levi sounds awesome. Isn't it amazing how they show up and completely turn your world up-side-down?

I am glad that Levi has an opportunity to interact with his dad. My son's father also wanted an abortion. (He is very glad these days that that didn't happen.) In fact, my son didn't know his father until he was about 10 years old. I know you're hopeful that this man you've been involved with for a long time steps up and participates in Levi's life.

It is very common for young men to freak out at the birth of a child when they have other plans for themselves. He has a lot of growing up to do.

You, however; have a child to raise. You are indeed a single mom, and you really need to protect your little family.

Daddy needs to be held accountable for financially helping to meet the needs of his son. I encourage you to pursue these arrangements. Levi deserves the life that comes with financial stability.

Focus on yourself and your dreams. Go to school, or pursue a career path that interests you.

You have just gone through a rough time, and I am very proud of you for coming through it with such a level head. I have no doubt that you will be successful and will provide Levi a wonderful life.

Hugs and love!
