 Hi, I am a 37 year mom to 3 awesome kids. Summer-18, Chance -17 & Phoenix-10. MY older 2 have the same dad a deadbeat who whos me $92,000 in child support. My youngest father is a part of his life and helps out. My mom died when I was 19, my daughter was 1 1/2 and I was 8 months pregnant with my 2nd. (my dad died when I was 16)

Today my 2nd child graduated from high school. I have 2 high school graduates :):):) My daughter has an almost 2 year old son has done a year in college, is now in school advancing her grades before going back to college and my son applied at college as well. Both are non drinking drugs etc, respectful kind kids!!

From a single mom who has done it alone with these 2 struggled barely made ends meet, had electricity cut off twice in out lifetime, walked miles to work cause my car was broken down just to put food on the table and so on....things do get rough,times are hard at times but having my 2nd child receive his diploma today was an amazing feeling, a proud feeling.

To others out there who think it is hard and want to give up don't!! There is sooo much more I have been through that I won't post, the reward of seeing your kids striving is the best feeling in the world!!!Stay strong and things can get better for us!!

What? You mean single moms can raise successful kids? Holy Cow!
