WASHINGTON – For the first time, minorities make up a majority of babies in the U.S., part of a sweeping race change and a growing age divide between mostly white, older Americans and predominantly minority youths that could reshape government policies.
Preliminary census estimates also show the share of African-American households headed by women — mostly single mothers — now exceeds African-American households with married couples, a sign of declining U.S. marriages overall but also of continuing challenges for black youths without involved fathers.
The findings, based on the latest government data, offer a preview of final 2010 census results being released this summer that provide detailed breakdowns by age, race and householder relationships.
This site is dedicated to the women creating this shift in the “typical” family structure. Some of the women authors are single, others are not however they have faced challenges raising a child without the support of the father.
Some of the fathers started out being involved and their presence decreased as time went on, some fathers left before the child was born, others left due to circumstances beyond anyone’s control.
We at SingleMomLife.Us are here to share our experiences and encourage other single parents to keep fighting the good fight.
