thank you. I can tell just from this thread that theres some great parents here. Im 24, so most people in my age group don't have kids, and the ones that do, havent reached this stage. So its easy for everyone I talk to to just point out what they disagree with, but they can't give a constructive answer when I ask how they would do it.
I shattered my toot and ankle at work a few years ago. I had 5 surgeries, but the doc couldnt fix it. I had my leg amputated below the knee a little over two weeks ago. Over the last few years, so many people have told me I have no business raising a child. As hard as that is to hear, it has been motivation for me to do what I need to do. I know that has put a lot more on her that someone her age should have, so that makes a lot of the judgement hard to hear. At the same time, I have to realize that some of taht is people looking out for her too, so I appreciate that part of it
