Marjorie Fahey isn’t alone - just man-free

I was left pregnant without a man, gave birth without a man, raised a child without man. This doesn’t mean that I’m alone though!

After enduring all the put downs from the birth-dad (BD), not receiving nor requesting a cent of child support, BD didn’t even want to know my little girl,

He only talks to me to say “Wow, I didn’t think you could do it”… well yeah I did it.

Baby’s 1st Birthday Party
Marjorie threw her daughter a big 1st Birthday Party!

To celebrate my daughter’s first birthday, we threw one epic party with all our friends and family.

Then we flew out to Cairns to spend time with my little one – even after getting her vaccination shots, we still had a good holiday.

One thing I’ll be sure to teach my daughter, is never to rely on a man’s opinion to identify who you are. ❤❤
