> I am a single mother with a seven-year-old child. I absolutely delighted in my pregnancy and my son's babyhood/early childhood. Now I'm under a huge amount of financial and emotional stress, and I find it's very difficult to take care of myself emotionally, and take care of my son. I find myself resenting him when my needs come up short. Of course, this makes me feel guilty and I am secretly afraid that I'm a bad mother. When I'm not stressed, I feel pretty relaxed with him and very allowing of his individuality. I like him, as well as love him. So it continues to be an intense learning process for me, and I'm glad I did it.

=Yeah, I think the overall experience will be one of greatness.. It's good to hear what the reality from the other side of the fence is.... I know it is very much worth all the sacrifices.

I'm very glad for you and glad to hear it. (:
