Single Mother's Deserve Your Support Why a single, mother's calendar rather than a calendar for all mothers?
What is Flying Solo? It is a 12-month calendar with unique, monthly anecdotes on life as a single mother, a prayer, scripture and researched statistics on single mothers.
An estimated 9.9 million women are raising children alone in the United States, up from an estimated 3.4 million in 1970, according ot the U.S. Census Bureau. Our issues are different, our daily lives are different, and our parenting challenges are different.
Contrary to misconceptions, not all single mothers are wayward teenage girls who fell into parenthood. Many single parents are divorced, widowed or chose to become adoptive parents.
As marriage in America continue to fail, the number of single moms and children being raised in single familiy homes will continue to be an issue in the U.S.
