We all know that most single moms are working their behinds off…and we all know that too frequently single moms take a lot of bashing in the media, by politicians, and perhaps by the neighborhood busybody. But things are changing, and just why, may surprise you.
Once relegated to the rear of the bus, single moms…and their children…are now taking center stage. Just as we were unwilling to be held hostage in bad relationships, or live without children waiting for that perfect guy, or gal, we have also been unwilling to allow our challenges limit our effective parenting. The result of our efforts is a generation of strong, smart, and appreciative kids who are moving forward in life, and accomplishing the incredible.
Wendy Solberg is one of those kids. A talented visionary and passionate artist, Wendy has channeled her enormous talent (and persuasively convinced others to do the same) into a beautiful and inspirational animated tribute to her single mother, and to all of us who pour everything we have into our children.
As much as I love to see single moms lead fulfilling and empowering lives, I love even more to celebrate the achievements of their children.
