      My husband passed away 4 1/2 years ago and I have been raising my son on my own. Would love to sync up with others that are on their own. My son is 10 years old.

        • Hi—So sorry for you loss. :(
          I am not without because my ex still sees my children two Saturday nights a month but it’s almost like he’s an obligitory babysitter. It interrupts him in his life...and he’s told me that. The children (boys 13, 10 and girl 8) don’t want to go anymore because they get ignored. I’ve been divorced/single now for 7+ years. I feel that I parent alone...all the time. It’s hard but I know my children will grow up stronger for it.
          Although your situation is different from mine, feel free to gripe, chat or just say hello. :)
          Cheryl

        • hello, sorry to hear about your husband. my boyfriend (my son’s father) died when my son was just 2—he’s 9 now. it is tough on my own but i do have a great support system that i utilize a lot! my sister, my best friends, nieces, etc. i don’t know what i’d do without them. however, my son is special needs (he has albinism) and also just found out ADHD. he just started seeing a counselor now too. good luck to you!

        • I am sorry about your loss; although due to different reasons I find myself raising my children alone. I recently divorced my husband of 19 years and 6 months ago he moved out of the country. It is sad to say he does not stay in touch with his children nor does he support them financially. I also believe as “dailyblod63” that my children (ages 18, 16 and 10) will grow stronger because of it. We might be in a tough spot currently, particularly financially, but I know in my heart that me and my kids will come out of this with a stronger bond, although it saddens me that they lost the relationship with their father.

        • Hi there. I can share your pain. My husband passed Jan 4, 2004. I am raising our wonderful son who is now 7. It is difficult but for me a I believe that people come into our lives sometimes just for a season and leave their mark on our hearts for a lifetime. Jeff left me with our son.  While I still cry sometimes like it was yesterday that it happened, I do my best to trust that God has a plan for us. I keep Jeff’s memory alive and have started to bring out things I kept for my son as he gets older and asks questions. He still has a great memory of his dad. Anyway, enough of that, I would love to help with whatever I can...

        • A tough loss for both of us. I’ve lost both parents and I cannot imagine what you both have had to deal with. I give you credit for carrying on and being strong Moms.

        • Star67—-it’s not easy. I often wonder why men become fathers and then just show no interest in the life they created. Those thoughts used to take up a lot of my thoughts...now it’s just every so often.

          The financial aspect is rough...don’t I know....just have to keep the head high and muddle thru.

          Keep in touch
          Cheryl

        • I’m sorry that I am just now seeing this.  I lost my husband too.  It will be 6 years next month.  Yesterday would have been his birthday.
          Feel free to message me anytime if you need anything or just need someone to talk to.
