What we're about
This Meetup is for single moms of Downers Grove. From experience I know how difficult it is being a single mom - your problems a lot of times are very different from those of just a normal mother. I also talked to many other single mothers who have echoed my own difficulties and struggles: not having someone to share the burdens and the joys, not having the special someone to work together to solve struggles of parenthood, and probably most importantly, having all the financial burned fall on you, the single mom.
Yes, it’s totally fine if you’re dating and/or in a relationship. I am! :). I think it’s probably also totally fine if you don’t live in Downers Grove - some people want a support group but it’s not where they live; just that the meetups will be in Downers Grove.
This is really just the beginning, but I think that it could really help having a support system for single mothers. Thank you.
Btw., sometimes being single can actually be WAY better than with the wrong person. I’m sure some of us know that all too well.
Ps. My son is 7 months old, but I’m not sure if ages of mom and children should be considered here. I’m welcome to suggestions!
