    I just joined.. I've been a single mom

    for only a few months now. My ex was physically abusive and I left after 5 years of forgiving him. I didn't set out to be a single mom, but I'm still being the best mom I can be :)

    Today I get to take my children to 6 flags.

    Single mothers are looked down upon

    for being in a relationship? Not all single mothers are looking for a guy, to replace daddy. Single mothers need love too. What's wrong with that? Absolutely nothing. I'm a single mother. I am also in a relationship. My SO is not trying to replace my child's father. Even though...

    Being a single mother is a path I chose

    when I decided to divorce and give myself and my kids a safe and loving home away from my toxic ex. I have no regrets in divorcing him... it's probably one of the smartest things I've done. But now, I'm faced with new problems. I'm trying to be strong, but I'm so so so tired...

    I Am a Single, Independent, Career Woman, But I Hate Being a Single Mom And Just Wish I Could Get Married to Someone I Love, Settle Down, Share Our Lives Together And Make a Family.

    My daughter's biological father gave me a false pretense to go on.  We were dating for over 2 years when I was seven weeks pregnant and we found out.  He said he wanted to get married and even bought me a ring.  After I hit the second trimester, he told me that he...

    Dear "single Dads".

    First, I should preface this by pointing out that I put the words "Single Dads" in quotations. The reason for this will be explained shortly, but I don't want anyone to think that I'm making a blanketed remark about all single fathers. I know that there are some single parent...

    Our daughter was nine years old when I decided I'd best get away from her father. Not that he's out of her life, I wouldn't want him to, because he's her dad and will always be. Just because I hate his guts doesn't mean she can't see him. After I broke up, we crashed into my...
