    Consider ALL things.[/QUOTE]
    Baller, you are so on point with your comments. There is so so much to consider before going forward and you have at least set the foundation from which to possibly build on. This is an extremely delicate situation especially because of the child and father. A wholehearted discussion is needed like Baller says and honesty needs to be at the forefront...That is where it all begins and it will set the tone if there is to be a relationship.. It reminds me of the heart to heart that my wife and I had before we entered into our relationship....Excellent post and excellent comments by all...

    Before responding to specific posts I want to ask if anyone knows of how, traditionally, a situation like this would have been perceived. Yes, I know not that long ago in South America, the Caribbean and the continent children were not only raised by parents, a single parent even, but the community/village but what about the single parent ? What would be the future for her/him ?
