I didn't start off my parenting experience as a single mother. I started things off by following a common path. I got married, had two baby girls, and played the role of wife and mother. I was married for close to 12 years before my husband left. All of a sudden I found myself carrying the new title of SINGLE MOTHER. Quite honestly it was never a title that I imagined having. But there I was, a single divorced mother with two children under the age of ten.
