I think every parent should put their children first!! That's how I raised my past daughter. You really just don't know how blessed you are to have your children. When their gone it really sucks

I know this is an old post...I have a daughter w/ Down syndrome, she is 16 now.
I recently dated a man who has custody of 4 kids, 7 through 19. His 8 yr old is DS. I was excited, surely we would have things in common. We had 4 once a week dates before I met his children. By date 6, it was apparent; he was using his PCA time to drink, then came home intoxicated to cook and give kids 2 hours of quality time.
It is not difficult at all for me to accept it. I just hope to find someone who understands.

I believe that the woman ending the relationship because of that is shallow. if you have a real connection it should not matter about your child.... Obviously you have not found the right lady.
