Single Mom But Not A Single Mom

(Denver CO)

Hi name is Shawntell 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 been with my sons 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 which he ended up lying about.

We ended working out a relationship 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 he says he doesn't want to be a relationship, he's not ready and 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 use protection.

I asked him to buy stuff for our son and he doesn't. Christmas was the first time my son has seen anything form 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 still like a single parent because I do everything for my son everything on my own.

Dear Feeling Single...
by: Sara

You feel single because you are. You don't say if you went through with a marriage, but you really don't have one at this point.

Do you love this man? You don't say. It is very difficult for some young men to get it together for their children. Sometimes, in time, it gets better. My son's father didn't enter his life until he was 10. He tried to be present when my son was quite young, but it didn't last long. My son is now 25 and has a great relationship with his father.

However; none of that helps you right now. I am sorry to say, you really can't count on this guy right now. Your energy needs to be spent on you. What do you want from life, and what do you need to do to get it?

If this guy gets himself together that would be great. If he doesn't, you'll be great anyway.

Hugs and love!
