It was about a decade ago when April decided to adopt. The single mother had two biological daughters but wanted more. And it all started with Elijah.
When Elijah was an infant, April met him at her neighbor’s house, where he was in foster care.
“I used to go over there daily and play with him because I wanted a boy so bad,” said April.
He inspired April to become a foster parent and eventually adopt.
Mother’s Day is a week from Sunday.
It’s a day when we honor one of the most important — if not the most important — people in our lives: our mothers.
We take them out for brunch, or dinner, or a walk around the neighborhood and remind them how much we love and treasure.
It is, truly, a day all mothers should be able to enjoy.
Yet, I know there are many mothers out there who, sadly, cannot.
I have always had a soft spot for single mothers.
Overjoyed with the unexpected results, Casas could only thank God, her parents, and her 8-year-old daughter for inspiring her to push harder and aspire for bigger things in life.
Eight years ago as a student at the University of the Philippines Los Baños (UPLB),
Casas recalled that she was “lost and confused.” She had low self-esteem, and she thought she would not do well in the field of science.
The Women’s Fund listens to many of these mothers. Last year, we conducted a study in which 200 single mothers earning less than $30,000 per year at the area’s largest employers shared their stories.
These women work hard. Consider:
My son feels the discrimination at the very core of his being and is both scared and appalled.
A 15-year-old with more compassion than the men caught celebrating on camera in front of the world.
Again, I ask, is this the world we now live in? Where privileged white males hold power over others
and use that power against them under the guise of Christianity.
A world where healthcare is necessarily considered a fundamental right but, certainly could and should be considered a privilege with attainable access to it a probability.
“I know it is the duty of the parent to provide for the family but if we don’t have money we don’t know what to do next.
“There are more than six people in our family, and we all depend on my minimum wage.
“That’s the way of the Samoan sand we have lived that way for a while.
But Brown is thankful every day.
We all look up to the parent that is present during our formative years.
And seeing your mom striving to make ends meet and growing up with that image will give you the best role model you could ever have. She will help and inspire you to become just like her— maybe an even better version of her—when you grow older.
While I stare at them in wonder. But I can’t get over the fact that they are mine.
It’s like a power switch has suddenly come on in my life,
filling the emptiness in my personal space with new energy. I get teary-eyed just looking at them.
It’s surreal to think of them as my daughter and son.
Five thrill-seeking holidays for single-parent families, offering water sports, bike rides – and endangered turtles.
Imelda and Darrel share custody of their four-year-old Violet. She reckons to be a single father would be more difficult than being a single mother.
Imelda said: I may be just speaking for myself, but I think that women do most of it anyway.
First, it’s very interesting being a mother, but it’s not easy being a single mother. However, at the same time,
I am very happy about seeing my son around me. That gives me joy from within. Seeing him is a sort of encouragement for me.
I love him so much.
I’ve been contemplating my own single womanhood and single motherhood a lot lately, in a particularly focused way.
It’s interesting to consider the stigma and widespread story around “being single”, as well as the real struggles,
honest loneliness, and unmet yearning a single life can include.
But one dad has found a way to get the kids all tuckered out before a flight.
Footage uploaded to photo sharing site, Imgur, reveals his technique.
Singer Vicky Kitonga, who is also a single mother, took to social media to encourage all single mothers with an emotional post asking them not to give up on their kids.
So the next time someone wants to tell you that everyone who uses welfare and food stamps is just freeloaders who don’t want to help themselves… don’t even?
