If you're new to this single mom thing, you may be in a state of shock, waking up one day and wondering if you can make it as a single mom. What does it mean to you, to make it? How you define making it can affect how you will make it. Everything that your former partner did and earned may or may not be out of the picture. It's all up to you now, even if you do get help. It's a responsibility. It may feel like a burden. It may feel like a nightmare that you cannot wake up from. Regardless, for the sake of your children and yourself, you've got to do two things: 1) Figure out where you are and 2) Figure out where you'll be in the next five years. You'll have a better chance at success by making some plans and some goals. If you need some help or just an ear, reach out to someone or to us.
