I would say do it. I come from a broken non traditional family... I call my mom a gypsy. I never lived in the same house sometimes town for more than 2 years at a time. I am also a ex-navy wife (he got out).
I say remeber it takes a village to raise a child.
I remeber relying on a woman I barley knew to help me when I had to be at work at 5am. We met through our daughters preschool. This worked out because she needed someone to help out after school. I then got a promotion and I had to be to work at 3am.
This woman who I barley knew has become my best friend. We both were navy moms trying to raise young kids and work to help out financialy. I say you do what you need to to make your situation work.
Good luck I hope this story helps ease some of your worries about it.
