Single Mother - My Choice

 
 

Amy’s Success Story


Hello everyone! My name is Amy and I am the proud single parent of an amazing 3 year old boy. Aside from being a mom, I also work from home. Being a work at home single mom is always a challenge but it is well worth it, especially because I have the opportunity to support my child while also spending more time with him, which means a lot to me. The road to success was not always an easy one, that is for sure, but I was able to get by because I kept pushing, using my son as my main motivation, since I want to be the best that I can be for him.

I never actually expected to be a single mother, I don’t think that many of us really think that is what we will go through in the future but it happened. When it did happen, I was not quite sure what I could or should do. I knew that it would be tough to raise my son on my own but I also knew that it was something that I had to because he deserves the best in life. I started looking around for resources that were available in my city and state for single parents. Surprisingly, there were actually a whole lot of resources, more than I had originally known about.

Amy & His SonAside from finding temporary resources, I also knew it was important for me to find work but I wanted to be able to work from home so that I could spend the first few years of my son’s life with him, helping him to learn everything that will prepare him for school. I thought long and hard and decided that I would see if I could do something that I love, writing, and turn it into something profitable for myself. It didn’t come easy and, as a matter of fact, it took several hours of extensive research without losing hope but eventually, I found different gigs. I started to become more established in the world of writing and, eventually, I started earning the kind of income that I needed to be able to support my son and myself.

Even if you are a not a good writer, there are tons of different opportunities available if you are looking to work from home. And, if you really want to be able to work from home, you will be able to find something. At times, you will feel discouraged and would want to give up… I know because I have been in that situation before. But, if you continue to have hope and search for what you are looking for, you will be able to support your child or children. It is much easier said than done but it is entirely possible. I can now proudly say that I am a single parent with a successful work at home career.
