I have been where you are. It was basically, me, my son, and my folks. Long story. But, needless to say, after several years, I married my husband. My son adores him, even if they drive each other crazy. When they don't have a father, and you are able to give them a father figure, especially someone who loves you "both" then it's worth it. It's natural to be a little cautious. But, don't let that caution drive you crazy. If it's meant to be, than it will all work itself out. Just remember, your own happiness is just as important as your daughter's. Just make sure that this guy is the right one and will never hurt either one of you. Good luck!
