I originally created this site to encourage and support mothers no longer with the father of their child (ren) our fathers raising their child (ren) without there mom. All of the contributing writers come from various circumstances, however we all have one thing in common: we want better for our children than we had growing up. I am proud to say we have accomplished that. We did not need someone to tell us to live the American dream (most people forget that was the original ideology behind the American dream before possessions became the dream), it was a driving force in our lives. We places ourselves in positions to go to battle for our children and protect them at all costs. We allowed people into our lives who had a positive influence on our children and let go of the ones who did not. Some of us are now single who had a mate others of us are now attached who started off otherwise. We can all tell you that it does get better a long as you have pure intentions. I am currently enrolled in a Masters in Education program to prepare for the next go round of battles for my son and have my Phd program already lined up. My family is stronger and has grown and I am not the only contributing writer in a better place since this site was created.
If you want the same changes, the change starts with you. Get out of you toxic ways and better yourself for your child (ren). Job holding you back? Place yourself in a better position to find other opportunities. People holding you back? Stop allowing them to do so. Be the change you want.
