Can you rel8 to this?
Not that many people actually have a choice when thrust into single parenthood but I’m here to tell you, it is certainly NOT for those who are going to faint at the slightest woe. Being a single parent means changing a few of your course directives and creating a new plan of action that now demands the needs of the little person (s) that you now govern. To make matters more challenging, if you have a child with special needs, life becomes THAT much more interesting.
As a single parent, I am eternally grateful to have my parents near in this season. They have truly been a blessing. When I was forced to “woMAN up” less than a few years ago and care for my autistic son alone, I really didn’t understand the gravity of my responsibility. I don’t think I even thought about it. I just went into auto-pilot mode ~ I fed and bathed him, I prepared him for school, played with him, disciplined him and managed through the tantrums and other characteristics that presented themselves relevant at the time.
