The Solo Mama Project is about the process of trying to get pregnant, being pregnant, giving birth, and raising a child as a single mom. My first objective is to provide a place for me to process, vent, reach out, express myself, and write write write. Next, it’s a place for friends and family to follow my journey. Finally, I’m linking over from Single Mothers by Choice, the national nonprofit that provides resources and discussion boards for women like me who are launching into parenthood on their own. I hope some SMCs follow me on over here once in a while, and post my blog on their blogs too.
Dare I dream that strangers will find this blog appealing? If they do, awesome–and especially great if young women who are contemplating single motherhood find some solace or reassurance or at least a helpful example (or a good laugh). And, of course, there is the much more general audience who might be intrigued by this not-so-common path. Most of all, I hope you enjoy reading it!
After a long journey, Baby E was born in May 2014. I’m one lucky mom!!
For me, the only thing that matters is love: creating it, surrounding yourself with it, growing it. Love and best wishes and thanks for reading.
