A Single Parent’s Declaration : ” I Still Have Joy!”

I absolutely hate being a single parent. Sort of! I know that may be strong words for some, but for me, it’s a reality. Especially because it was something I never intended to be or expected to experience. I mean each of my daughters birth were “planned” as much as two parents can plan and [...]
