Happy Mather's Day!

For all those brave single mamas 
doing the work of both parents!

Whether you're parenting singly 
by choice
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!
