This is a group for single parents in SE Portland to meet each other for mutual support, connection, and friendship. I'm a teacher and single parent with sole custody of a beautiful 9 year old girl. We would love to meet other fun, kind, and tolerant individuals to get together for outings and potlucks, and to swap child care responsibilities and other resources. Being a single parent with sole custody, working full time, and not having much family support in the area poses it's own unique set of difficulties, and so single parents in this situation are definitely encouraged to respond. I'm limiting the group to SE Portland so that we don't have to travel far to meet up and so that we can better support each other.  If you would like to join, please respond with a brief introduction and/or add a profile so we can start to get to know you--thanks!
