Support systems

That is my daughter’s father. He’s a part of her life when it’s convenient for him, whenever he feels like, oh, I have a daughter today. Financially, nothing. Even when I had a job they made me waste two days of work, going down there to file for child support... If you want your medical and you wanna get food stamps for the child you have to take the child’s father to court for child support. Now what happens if I was afraid of him? What happens if he beat me up but my child needs medical insurance?

This is her dad holding her up in the air. …Asiya’s dad is 19 too, and he takes good care of her.  His dad wasn’t really in his life when he was younger so I guess that’s maybe why he takes care of her.  He wants to be in her life.
