Synopsis

It was my ex-husbands fiftieth birthday party. His sister and I are good friends and we were sitting and chatting about our children. My ex went to the front to say a few words and thank the usual for a great party setup. But instead I heard this.
“I would like to thank that woman sitting over there. She has done a great job raising my two children and she did it alone, being a single mom. I am proud of my children and how they grew up. Thank you, Lucia, for raising such great kids” I was shocked firstly because his current girlfriend was standing nearby and I never expected him to acknowledge me even less thank me. My first thought was, “Bloody shit, now you thank me”

This is a book about My children and me.
No, this is not a rag to riches story of how I fought against the odds and own multi business setups or how I became super cool. Instead this is my realities of being unemployed, tired, weak. However, I found strength and determination knowing that two precious lives depended on me and that I had to make sure they grow up well mannered, well adjusted to society, strong and determined… You know what – I succeeded

This book is written by myself and my two co-authors (my children) and gives perspectives on divorce and parenting from the single mother's side and the views of her two children It outlines our successes and failures as well as the lessons learnt. I believe that through this book, single parents will have a greater understanding on what our children think and how best to handle many different situations. It will also give children a greater understanding of their parents and what they go through.

Similar titles

  • "The courage to be a single mother" written by Sheilla Ellison. Published by Harper Collins in 2001. My book is different as my book deals with my relationship to my children and overcoming many barriers of being a single mom
  • "Growing up with single parents - What Hurts and What Helps" written by Sara Mclanahan in 1994 and published by the President and fellows of Harvard College. This book is a study which took 10 years on the children of single parents. My book differs in that it is a study on one such family
  • "Single parent families (The changing face of modern families) written by Rae Simmons. Published in 2010 by Mason Crest Publishers. My book is different as it is written by both the parent and the children hence giving both sides of the story.

Audience

Take Heart Mom, this book is for you. Through my life lessons I hope to inspire and encourage you to rock on and never lose hope. Chin up children - this book is for you too as it was co-authored by my own two children who share and can relate to what you going through.
