But is ok if they dont even give a chance to try, and might one day you will ralize that being single Mom have a lot challenges and go through all the make you so pruod. whatever is I just wait to meet the one GOD has for me
Honey I feel you. I've only just joined recently and I'm a single mum too. The one thing I want to ask God as soon as I get to Heaven (PLEASE?!): "Why did I meet this guy and have kids with him, if he wasn't 'the one' for me?"
God has His reasons and He doesn't necessarily share them with us. We just have to pray and believe that all will be revealed in good time.
(I secretly hope that my kids will play an important role; become a priest or discover something...?)
I admire you for your courage. Keep it up.
God Bless You!
I don't know...I have a 28 year old brother, never married, who's great with kids, he is the best uncle ever. I don't think he'd mind someone having kids so much as he'd be frightened of having the child get attached to him and then stop dating. He's technically Lutheran but I converted... LOL I guess I am a busybody. I think this site is great for forums but I don't see that it's much good for people here for the matchmaking side of things from a lot of the comments I see.
Ladies, there are apparently all sorts of things to consider when dating with a child, I've heard a share of horror stories from so many sources that I'm now sitting here thinking I should just wait till I'm 50 to even consider dating when the annulment goes through. I have no advice here.
From the other side of the road bridge....
I was you, eons ago it seems. There are plenty of men who are willing to be step-parents. I know there is a lot of back and forth on the fora for both sides, but in the real world, men in their 30s & 40s are just getting rolling with their quest for children. They are looking for someone your age to do so with. They do exist though. You just need to be careful, use discernment and much prayer, and do NOT expose your child to anyone you don't think will be a good fit. Children are easiest hurt. Good luck.
