Being Strong

Source: tumblr.com via Katie on Pinterest




After reading THIS post be Lindsey I was inspired to tell you a little more about me. I will spare you all the depressing details but at the age of 18 I met Bradley's father. After 4 months of knowing each other I was pregnant. Not exactly what I had planned but he was coming! To make a long story short things didn't work out. I tried. And I tried again. I think he moved in and out about 5 times.





The life he wanted to live was not what I wanted for my precious boy. He got to see his dad every other weekend for a while and it terrified me to let him go where I could not control what was going on. I hate not having the power to keep him safe because his safety is all that matters to me.  I was single for the most part till Bradley was almost 4. Being a single mom is one of the hardest thing that a woman can do. But you suck it up and do what you need to do your your children.





Bradley changed my life. I was having a blast going out and being free and knowing I could do whatever I wanted to. It was a blessing in disguise to have him. He made me change for the better. 





I love you Bradley. And I am so happy that you now have Jason to be the dad 
that your father can not be right now.

Sounds like we have similar stories.. My daughters biological dad and I only knew each other a few months.. But we stupidly got married. Split up, got back together, split up again, got divorced. She hasn't seen him in almost 2 years but that's fine by me. Adam is the most amazing dad she could've ever gotten.

I love the ending. I am a single mom to my three year old son, who seldom sees his dad. Very similar stories. It is very hard, but you give me hope that there could be a fairytale ending! Thank you for sharing.
