Default Southeast Michigan

Wow. Looks like there aren't many MI parents that post here much. I'm in southeast Michigan. Closer to Pontiac than Detroit.

Been a single parent most of my kids lives.

Their birth father left us when they were ages 1 and 2.
I remarried when they were 6 and 8.
Their step father left us in 2010. They are teenagers now.

I kind of feel like a failure to my kids. I hope that being abandoned by two fathers doesn't mess them up for life. We're just now getting on our feet and starting our new lives over. They seem to be adjusting (maybe better than I am).

Never thought I'd be a single, middle-aged mother, but here I am.

Welcome! I know my kids might have issues but is there anybody really that doesn't have a few issues? They may have had two men leave but there Mom is there and that will be enough.

Michigan IS gorgeous. I love the seasons. I've lived elsewhere and I missed them terribly.

Thanks Sara! You're sweet. {HUGS} I hope you're right!

Hi MochaMom,

I grew up in Michigan, and all I can say is: you can take the girl away from Michigan, but you can't take the Michigan from the girl! Michiganders all the way!!!

And I agree with sara, *you* are in their lives and that is what counts. HUGS.

Default Re: Southeast Michigan

Hi, MochaMom,

I just joined the forum today. I live in Berkley, in Oakland County, just northwest of Detroit.

I joined because I realized that since moving to Michigan from Ohio almost a year ago, I've made professional connections, church acquaintances, and even have a boyfriend, but do not have any close female friends here to hang out with, talk with, share experiences with.

I try to be more of an IRL person than an internet person, but between working and raising kiddos by myself, there's not much time to find friends. I love my church, but it's small, and almost all the members there are either married couples, or young, childless singles who don't have much in common with a 40yo single mom of 3.

If anyone in SE Michigan would like to get together for coffee, or just even start some email or phone conversations, I would just love that.

Warmly,
Amy

Hi Hi Pneumaphile!

I'm in the Waterford / Commerce area, a bit of a ways from you but I don't mind a drive here and there.

We should totally plan a coffee day. I'm with you, no time to breathe let alone make new friends. My church is the exact same way as yours. I don't really fit in anywhere.

Kind of been in a funk lately. An "I don't care about anything" funk. Not my life, my job, my looks. My head tells me to pull it together but I just don't FEEL like it yet.

One day at a time, right?

I think I need some IRL friends as well. I will be in between the two of you location wise very shortly (royal oak area) or somewhere in there.

Once I move up there, I wont have anyone around anymore (all my family is downriver), and my husband will be working crazy overtime for the next several months.

I would love to meet some other moms around my age as well
