Single mother

Dear Queenie,

  When I got pregnant by a man I was dating, but not serious about, he wanted me to have an abortion. I broke up with him instead and never told him when the baby was born.

  Queenie, should I let him know in case he is willing to be a father to his child now that the baby is here?—Single mother

Dear Mother,

  Whether he wants to be part of his child’s life or not, this man still has certain legal obligations such as child support. Of course, to enforce those obligations you may have to go through some DNA testing to prove his  relationship to the child. You should consult a lawyer before you talk to your baby’s father.
