My name is Amanda, i'm 22 years old, and going to school full time, and I recently became a single mom.  My daughters name is Hayden, and shes almost 2 1/2 years old.  She is the best thing to ever happen to me, and I am so glad to have her in my life.

Recently, the father has been trying to get joint physical custody of Hayden.  He lived with us since before hayden turned 2, and our relationship has been a disaster basically from the start.  He has always been a drinker, and he smokes marijuana occasionally.  I have caught him smoking pot twice while he was responsible for watching Hayden, and he has left her home alone when Hayden was under 1 year old, so he could go get McDonalds.

I'm terrified that he will get joint physical because he has a very very good lawyer.  I also have a lawyer who thinks that 50/50 would be a mistake, and very hard on hayden.  I guess for the most part that's my story of how I became a single mother.
