I need help, advice, SOMETHING! I have 2 children, 14 and 7, am divorced and have raised my 7 yr old alone for the last 3 years. My son lives with my ex husband in another state. However, I am now pregnant with twins, my daughter's daddy is the father, and he is MIA and will be permanently. Can anyone give me advice on delivering and raising these babies alone??

welcome to the site neibor, I am not sure of the programs here in our neck of the wood, as I get no help, wife or state. I would check the local and state program, I know the kids will get MC+ if you apply for it, as too other programs I am not sure. I have my youngest on the free lunch program at school, thats about the extent of state help I get. Luck to you though

Well, I work at Con Agra so I make too much money to get any state assistance and I have insurance through there. I am really wondering how in the world I am going to get 2 babies on a feeding schedule through the night by myself and still work, as I have my 7 yr old daughter who lives with me all the time as well. But thanks for your words of encouragement.
BTW, you have 2 beautiful young ladies there!
God bless you all!
Michelle

, conagra is like two or three blocks for me now.

Anyway if you post this in single mothers of multiles you may get someone who knows how to jugle the time better then me. I know it is hard when there are two people baby tending, and only one baby at that, luck.

Oh, thanks for the compliment, I am just glad they basically ignor boys so far, nothing serious anyway.

I can't give you advice on doin it alone.....i just recently became alone But i can say that having people (lotsofpeople) around for the first few months. At that point it doesn't matter whether it's "daddy" or not. My ex worked long long hours.....but i had tons of friends and family that took turns coming to the house to help with my girls who were 5 and 2 when the twins were born. I basically sat on the couch feeding and changing the babies and hugging the girls for the first month. I don't know what else to say than get help....friends, family, church family...

It Ok to respond to old post, She, the Original Poster may even stop back and post an update. There may be others that are in her same situation and would feel the need to just read and would not have to go through all the hoops to sign up, just to ask the same question.


Reading the response, and seeing Lurch... who died of cancer, reminds me to give a prayer out to him.

"old posts" are someone new question somewhere in the world. Thanks for responding. One day someone will have the best answer to the question.
