Thank you very much for that Eben.

I guess it is especially hard for the person who did not start out as a single parent but somehow ended up that way. The adapting is a really tough one.

I do hope that you can be an inspiration to others in this group who are still struggleing as single parents

You need lots and lots of prayers to survive as the single parent. Sixteen years ago I became the single parent. my children were 13 and 11 at that time. With the help of my Lord and a few of my friends to day they have completed their studies and my son is working in South Africa as a missionary and my daughter is a nurse. All this became possible becaus of my Lord. Trust Him to lead you in the right way. You will never be sorry for it.

Hi, to all you single parents, hope God is blessing you as he is me with my son, Daniel who is 11 years old.
I pray God may lead all of us single parents in His ways for the sake of our children. Take care and may you find the joy in the Lord, He knows each of our future.
God bless

Hi Cherylann, I am sure that by the time you see this picture you would know who this is, I was introduced to AO through a friend, when I saw your group I just could not resit joining, you see I have had this challenge for most of my adult life and now I feel obligated to share with my sisters in Christ my experience, you are not alone in this fight, yes whilst we may have made mistakes in our past, there is a Savoiur.

We can not and should not put ourselves down for fear that we are alone in this struggle, because we are not, there were times that I wanted to give up too, but because God loves me, he showed me a way out, all it takes is trust in God, lean ONLY on him to bring you out of this, Single Parent Hood is not a disease, it is a way of life and the way you handle it is the way it will turn out of you, all it takes is a little note, a good word spoken, a moie night, a little play time, playing some games, a phone call when your are far away or some other thing, just be inventive and you will see a difference in the way that your relationship with your kids develops, know that you have to work extra hard as a single mother but that is alright because God gave us enough to handle it. Dont mind when the ffinances are low and the debts are high, be faithful and pay your tithe and offerings, God will work it out, I know becasue I have tired it and it works.

Finally my dear sisters in Christ, be strong, your kids are looking on, never do anything in their sight that will hinder their progress to the Kingdom, they are watching your every move and remember that God loves you and I love you too and will be putting all you guys in this group on my pray list

I must say that this is a good idea and that we need to keep in touch.

God Bless.

Yeah Sister I read you I have only one child but being the sole bread winner it is a bit tough.

I do think that she is a blessing from God ....she is the best thing that ever happened to me.

I thank God for her every day

Hi there Cherylann.
I love seeing my kids grow up and become nice, disciplined and responsible human beings who love the Lord and respect their fellow man. That keeps me going, just watching them grow.

The challenges I face really relate to lack of capacity to fulfill all my parental obligations alone - as a single working mom, in a demanding senior job and with 2 kids I have so much to do all the time, I just never catch up. I fear that my kids are missing out on so much quality time, my son certainly has been affected by it.
I have sent my daughter to boarding school, she loves is there and is happy, my load is not so bad during school term. I miss her all the time though.
