I posted a few posts in this thread when I initially was TTC and eventually became pregnant. I had a beautiful baby girl on January 7th. My partner of 8 years split 2 months later in March. It wasn't the stress of a new baby that caused the break up, but more the final straw as we had issues before pregnancy.
I can't help but feel lonely. I live in Columbus OH and although there's a huge number of gay and lesbian families, I just can't seem to find families to hang out with. I have a decent amount of friends but they don't have kids and see us once about every 2-3 weeks. I also belong to the g/l parent group here. My family lives about 3 hrs away.
I love being a mom but this isn't what I envisioned. I wanted that family atmosphere where I come home from work and see my partner and daughter playing in the back yard. Now, it's just us. Not that it's all bad ... I get to bond with my daughter and make the parenting decisions on my own.
Are there any other single moms out there? How do you make this all work?
