I Admire Single Mothers

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 1,406 People

    I admire single mothers.

    I was a single mom as a teenager and now as an adult mom. I love being and seeing single moms regardless of age. I love young teenagers who are pregnant just like my daughter by her boyfriend.

    I Am A Single Mother.

    I am a single mother and it is no easy task.I did not ask for the father of my child to be unfaithful, emotionally & mentally abusive, or unloving towards myself or my daughter. A choice was to be made, and he was removed from my life. More importantly, my daughter's because of...

    I dated a few single mothers

    and ultimately married one. I can say to anyone considering going out with a single mother, it is not for the immature: 1. The children will dictate most everything you do. That's just the way it is. Can't get alone time? Tough. Had plans and now a kid is sick? That's...

    I grew up with just a mum.

    She always said that no dad was better than having a bad dad. She always said my dad contributed 1% (one *****) and she gave me the other 99%. She is right! I admire single mums.

    My Mom

    My mom became a single mother in 1968 when my dad walked out of the door for the last time. At 7 years of age, I don't remember enough to know who was in the wrong, but I do know that after that moment, never again would I have a father in my life. Mom drove a school bus and...

    My dad left us when I was a baby

    and so it's always been mommy, my sister and me. She's always worked hard and we have a nice house and everything, and I respect her soooo much for it!

    Big props go out to those single mothers out

    there. They've got to be the father and mother of the family and that has got to be sooo tough. Not only that, but single mothers are mostly frowned upon and so they have to deal with that social stigma everyday. I know I would have a really tough go of it myself, so to those...

    Thanks mom for all your sacrifices.
