Girl!!! Don't feel bad because you are doing what you need to do as a mother and he's not doing the same. First, lets talk about your selt. in men... he doesn't sound like he'd be a good father from the start (house arrest) and you knew deep down he wouldn't live up to his end of the bargin. I'm not bashing you because my child father/donor isn't much better himself.
What i did was stop making excuses for this man. You can't teach a man to be a man or father. Stop blaming yourself and when this man tries to reverse neg. this on you and tries to blame you for his absence and ect. Don't feed into his BS because that's the game most men play. I would intro. him by his first name and let him prove to you BOTH he's ready to be a "father/dad".
My advice to you is KEEP IT MOVING, pray, and look foward! Your life shouldn't and can't stop because of the bad choices this man has decided to make and now you can choose the way you handle/deal with this because your directly affected.View Thread
