I love all of these comments. Just tons of insults thrown at single mothers who - for the most part - are hardworking mothers. I am a single mother. The circumstances surrouding the why of it are not as important as my story. My daughter is smart and loved. I am not on or have ever received government assistance - inc earned income credit. We go to church. My daughter is in private school. I received my college diploma. I have a wildly successful career while still making the time to get dinner on the table every night, take my daughter to dance classes and still have lots of fun with her. I did it all without child support. Or the guy who is missing it all, because he wasn't ready.
