Oh, if you ever need anyone to talk to I'm a click away and my email is so you can email me anytime. I wished the best to your son because I know what it is like to grow up without a dad. I would like to be a friend to you and your son. Just remember that we go through the things we go through because God wants us to turn to him in time of need. God has said that you ask and you shall receive as long as you ask with good motives. I'm a 30 year old caring and loving person who loves to help out when I can but right now I can only be a friend.

I think its great your such a hard worker, determined to raise your son well. Have you looked into online education? It requires a computer and thats about it..theres financial aid for it just like if you went to a traditional college..I got one of my degees from Unversity of Phoenix, they are very good. My husband went to University of Texas online which was also good. Look around and check out some online universities..then you can get your education without leaving home or having to worry about transportation. Best of luck to you and your son.

I wished I could help you but I will pray that God will bless and your son. I'm kind of in the same place as you are in terms of money and transportation. I'm trying to become a Certified Dog Trainer and to help my Community. We can pray for each other.
