    Hello Family,

    I'm a single parent (divorced for 50/11 years) and i have 3 children. A son that is 26, a daughter that is 19, and another daughter that is 10 (we adopted Destiny, which is where "Destee" comes from).

    So i've been in this parenting role for a long time and have made many mistakes ... but God is Good and all is well! :)

    Looking forward to this forum and all that it can do for us.

    Thanks again Sister PurpleMoons, for suggesting it!

    :heart:

    At this time I only have a daughter, who is 19 months old. I got a late start in parenthood (at least compared to some). However, me & Mrs. PanAfrica are working on more.....will continue "working" tonight on this situation. :huh:

    i have 8 children, 27, 24, 21, 19, 17, 15, 13 and 8. Recently my children were taken my the government, this as been very depressing for me, i have raised my children in the nation of yahweh, with the laws of yahweh. and 1 of the laws is to teach our children at home, which i did, i also worked, and my children were taken becuz of these two reason, i hve been fighting this devil for over 6 months now, and there seems to b no 1 that can help me. i have come to realize that i may nvr get my children back, no matter what i do, i can not afford a lawyer, something that is told to me more often then i would like to hear, i just wanted to drop a couple of lines on how many children i have and how i know that i am all alone , even though america is full with so many people

    Goodness sister

    I can't even imagine going thru something like this. I know you say you are alone, but can you seek help thru the nation of yahweh, it seems like they should be able to assist you in this since this is the religion you believe in and have served and followed their laws???....smh, I just don't understand...smh
    Please keep us posted, let us know how things tun out.
