The beauty of the world is it's difference; it is the ignorance and arrogance of man that makes the world unsafe.

Someone said it best when they said SAVE THE E-MAILS!!! When your daughter gets older you will not be able to protect her but the light in that dark tunnel of not being able to protect her is that you will be able to be there for here. My daughter is not biologically my husband's but he has been her dad since she was 2 and she is now 10 and we have had the "real daddy" converstion with her. She wants to be a pediatrician and we were talking about it one day and she refers to biological by first name so she asked when I become a doctor what do you think he will say? How do you answer that one? Children are so resilient; I believe taht if we give them enough love and support no matter waht the situation is they can overcome it. Most of the time we as adults make more out of things than the children. Actually, the last time biological saw her she was about 15months at his mom's house. The irony of this whole situation is that his parents paid an attorney for me to get child support ordered. Remember the old saying: "You can lead a horse to water but you can't make him drink."
I have a lot of friends who are of different nationalities and generally they don't judge each other as harshly as African American women judge each other. Honestly, there is more help in those communities. For example they have what is called date night. All the ladies get together and put in to hire two babysitters for the kids and they all go out. This is done on a monthly basis. As far as negative comments I think people have a right to speak their mind no matter how one sided, uninformed, ignorant, or arrogant that it may be. Sometimes people just lash out at others because they are to much of a coward to deal with their own situation. Think about it; you have amarried woman who is lashing out at single mothers but in realith her husband could very well be cheating on her. Scenarios could go on endlessly in regards to why people do what they do. Personally, I think that black women just need to come together as a whole and support each other. Fortunately I am blessed enough to not have to be a single mother but to all those that are I wish you and your family many blessings and all the success that God can bestow upon you!!
