Co-parenting mommyof8withcancer.blog

My co parenting journey feels more like a nightmare! For the longest time I was hell bent on keeping the man that donated sperm to give me my four oldest kids away. Selfishly I just held so much hate in my heart for that man. I doubted his parenting abilities and had my head set …
