Sounds like in your particular case, not loosing a husband in Iraq, for instance, or even splitting after agreeing to have a baby together, that you, alone, personally CHOSE to take on having a baby and raising him alone. Entirely your choice ... no one elses. You would not have "had" to do it. You "have to do it" now because that's the choice you consciously made. So ... no 'unfortunate force of circumstances' involved. Just an adults choice to move forward with a major undertaking alone.
All the best to you and your son.
