Doing it All on Your Own

This article about the personal finances of a single parent in April's Kiplinger struck a cord with me:

Single women, by far the majority of single-parent households, earn an average of $26,500 a year. Child support, for the 45% of custodial parents who receive the full amount, averages about $5,800 a year.

I was a single parent for most of Bo's life when child care cost more than our rent.
