    Alright, I am kind of in an unique situation with some similarities with many of you gentlemen. I am going to be a single Dad, the due date is June 11th. In all honesty, I am going through the rollercoaster ride of emotions from happiness, fear, joy, anxiety, terror – the whole gambit. The biggest obstacle is this; my child is being born on another continent. The relationship evolved when I was overseas traveling, studying, and living. I have returned home to get a career and finish my studies in order to provide for our baby. We both know that the relationship was impulsive but agreed that having our child was the best choice. I don’t want to be a dead beat dad and want to be a part of the child’s life. There is some resentment for me not being their for the pregnancy process, and I don’t blame her or her family for that. I felt it was in the best interest for all of us to return to the States finish my degree (I have one year left) and get a job right now and hopefully a career in the future. I reach out daily to check-in on how the pregnancy is going and often get one word answers. Any tools or recommendations to assist in the communication process is appreciated. Do any of you have experience in dealing with long distance relationships in regards to children? I am in the process of getting citizenship for him once the birth actually happens; however, this may take some time as immigration is saturated.In the meantime, how do you guys keep the communications lines open? How can I be supportive to her while respecting her boundaries? I hate the fact that I am here, and the whole pregnancy is happening overseas. I will make it out for the birth, but the guilt is so overwhelming at times.
