I found this article in Slate when I was pregnant and searching online for advice on being the best single mother possible. Another single mom recently sent me this article from Bloomsbury Academic. The statistics about children of single mothers are scary. I think we can change that story though.
I have met a lot of great single moms since baby was born. Seeing these women do such an amazing and loving job of raising their kids is a great comfort. As is reminding myself that people like Barack Obama – among many, many other successful people – was the child of a single mother.
Some days are hard. But most days I actually feel lucky to have him all to myself. 😉
