It is wonderful that your mother has said she wants what is best for you. That is huge.

I'm not trying to turn this into an argument, BUT saying that "all a child needs is love" is flowery BS. A child needs a safe, stable environment and a parent(s) who can provide for them.

That said, having the means to raise a child, a desire to raise a child, and a support system to do so, is going to result in the most successful parenting situation. And it sounds like you are thinking clearly about this and have the necessary ingredients.
