Every day we feature the beloved “Strawberry Letter” franchise that is so popular on “The Steve Harvey Morning Show,” heard nationwide. Send in your letters and Shirley Strawberry will dish out the necessary advice. Today’s topic: Dumped right before having his baby Dear Steve & Shirley, I’m a 29-year-old mom of two, who dated a guy for three months before learning he was married. His wife left him for his brother-in-law.  I broke it off with him and later found out that I was pregnant. When I told him he insisted we do it together and we did until two weeks before my delivery. He walked out without a word. My baby is three weeks old now and he says he isn’t ready to be with me right now. However, he calls me and pops up at my house when he gets ready. I’m at my breaking point over this and I’m seeing a doctor for depression. What do I do now? P.S. My two kids’ father was killed when I was pregnant with my second child and his wife is still with the brother-in-law. Also the wife wants to be friends. Huh? Signed Baby-mama with Drama
