Thank you all so much for the help last week on the topic of parenting with adopted and special needs children - what beautiful insights you all shared with me! Many of your thoughts have found a home in my chapter and will go on to bless other moms!

This week, I am writing about single parenting - either moms who have always been single, divorced/annulled marriages, or widows. I would love to hear from any of you who face the difficult challenge of being a mom on your own - how do you nurture yourself spiritually, emotionally and physically with all you have on your plate? What special considerations do you face? What words of wisdom would you give to other moms?

As always, I appreciate your comments and support and will definitely protect your anonymity if I use one of your comments. Thanks, in advance, for any insights you can share!
