Going Solo as a Single Parent
Submitted by wwhhiittnneeyyy
I'm 21 and just found out I'm pregnant. I was already in the process of moving halfway across the country to go and live with my mom and finish college at Mizzou, but I'm afraid that I won't have complete support from the father of my child.
He's 30 and already has a daughter that's 13, who he barely gets to see. I really wish that he could be supportive, but he's the kind of guy that never wants to settle down or be the fatherly type.
Although he's supportive of my decision, I'm afraid of doing this without him, especially since I'm going to be 2,000 miles away from him, going to school and trying to raise a child. I'm also scared that I won't be a good mom. I think I'm just overthinking everything. Any advice?
