Good day,
Thank you for your message, however I am unable to assist you as I am not familiar with the laws surrounding that in the USA as I am based in South Africa.
It is commendable and very brave that you want to do this.
Perhaps you need to speak to someone is welfare or legal aid or family law?  Maybe even a rehab clinic there might be able to assist you?
Sorry I can't be of more help.
Good luck and God bless!

I have two sons from one dad - they are now young adults. I dated a man and we had a child. We have since separated over 5 years ago. I have done a lot of reading and internet research on all the challenges related to single parenting and dating as a single parent.
