Starting over

by Theresa
(New Jersey)

I became a single mom once I decided to leave my abusive partner, and once I left I found out I was pregnant again with twins. Now I'm carrying the two babies and have a one year old and can't seem to get it right.

I tried asking the father for help since I left my job once I left him and now living with my parents, but he said they are my responsibility. I tried putting him on child support but get no help since he decided to quit his job. I have no transportation to get what I need, let alone the financial means to provide completely for my kids.

I want to start a new life with my children and forget about the past, but it seems that I'm crying and hurting more as the day passes because I just do not know what else to do!! I want to be happy with my decision since I know it was right to leave, but I'm just afraid of failing my kids.

What am I to do?
