Choosing Single Motherhood

More and more women seem to be choosing single motherhood. They may choose to concentrate on their education, or their careers, rather than on a relationship with a man. Maybe they haven’t had good relationships with men in the past. There are numerous reasons why a woman may choose single motherhood.
 
Here are a couple of websites for you to visit for more information:
 
Choice Moms: For women who are looking at being single mothers, and for those who already are. January’s theme is Building a Support Network.
 
 
Single Mothers by Choice: Support and Information.
 
 
I know that these links will be of help to you, and I have also linked to them in the sidebar.
