Overwhelmed Woman Cannot Take Care of More Children

Single Mother Not Prepared for More Children
I am a single, divorced mother of a 4 yr old and a 9 yr old. I'm in school trying to finish what I started 10 yrs ago when I first became pregnant in college and had to drop out. I've come to far to stop now, but I can't afford another child. As of right now, we live w/ my parents who are both over 63. The father of the baby is the father of my other two kids, but he is currently engaged to the woman he had an affair w/ when we were married and she is currently 2 months pregnant! The whole thing is a mess and we should have known better, but I can't handle this. It just isn't the right time.
