    Thanks mom for all your sacrifices.

    I owe you my life and every scent of success I ever receive. No matter how tough it was, I would never want another person to roll with. You may not have been perfect but you were perfect for me!

    They Deserve More Recognition

    If you want to talk about every day heros you don't have to look any further then at some of them. The appreciation they get they deserve.

    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 Lizzie!

    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...

    Not just single mothers

    but also single fathers because I know they work just as hard as single mothers. I was/ am currently being raised by a single mother and think I am a better person because of it. When my dad left he left a mess, emotionally and financially. He is a heroin addict. Whenever he was...

    I definitely admire single moms.

    I was a single mom when I was 16 and in high school. I have two pregnant daughters that are soon to be single mothers. I give them all of my support in their pregnancies and motherhood.

    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...

    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.

    To all single mothers out there!

    It's not easy being a single mom. You've to teach your kids everything. Feed them, clothe them. You're human and you're going to **** up sometimes. But the bond you build with your kids can't compare to anything in this world. Being a single mother is twice the work, twice the...

    A man had a discussion topic on this site which was the reason I signed up. His title, "never, never, never date a single mother" pulled me right in. After the first line, "men who date single mothers are desperate with no self worth" I couldn't believe my eyes. I know some...

    I admire single mother

    because my mom is a single mother and she works so hard to support me and my two brothers. She always supports my dreams and helped me get art supplies so I can draw. She may be single but she the best. And I think it's amazing of her and other single mothers! They just go...

    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...

    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...

    Single mothers are amazing especially those who actually put her kids first. My friend is a single mother of 4 and not once does she complain. We've been friends for a year and not once has she asked me for favors. I usually offer her an hour or two of my time so she can go do...
