With two undergraduate degrees, an MBA, a TV talk show, and a published book, I thought I was living a great life (since my book is called Live Your Greatest Life). Then my my life changed, and it shook my world. I was a alone, scared, and pregnant. Outside my family and a couple of friends, I kept it a secret. I didn't want to hear the stereotypes and judgements. I was living in shame. I soon became overwhelmed thinking of everything that was headed my way (analysis paralysis), and at 7 months pregnant, started a blog called A Clueless Mom.
I received so much positive support and feedback, I started sharing my story with others and something amazing happened. I realized everyone knows a single mom. I looked for information and support as a single mom and was disappointed at the lack of help I found. I started The Single Mom Movement to educate and empower single moms to lead happy, fulfilling lives, so they can better empower the children of our future.
After my son was born, I felt so alone--that others didn't really get it or understand no matter how much they wanted to help. After working on my own shame and fears, I started The Single Mom Movement Community where we as single moms can go and get what we need, be around other single moms who understand, and get encouragement and support to thrive.
Single motherhood affects everyone, so it's our mission at The Single Mom Movement to get everyone involved to create big change for families. You don't have to be a single mom. You can sponsor a single mom, become an advocate, or join The Movement at www.TheSingleMomMovement.com. We look forward to seeing you in The Movement.
