I have one child already from a loving relationship that didn’t work out. I wanted another child but ideally with a partner and as a family unit.


I got pregnant by someone I was dating for five months. He blocked me when I told him. I was going to keep the child as I longed for one so bad but with no support system, financial worries and finding being a single mum to one child hard enough I couldn’t do it. The option for me was to keep this child but struggle mentally, physically and financially with two children, or look after myself and my living child comfortably. I opted for the second.
