For all those brave single mamas
doing the work of both parents!
Whether you're parenting singly
or by circumstance,
thank you for standing strong
in the face of societal censure,
both subtle and overt;
for refusing to accept the perception
that you and your children are 'less than' other families
because you don't look like
a 'typical' American family;
for your humor in the face of obstacles
and for your enduring devotion to your children.
Know you're not alone!
