‘Do you guys like pizza?’ Their eyes were nervous. This was yet another move, their 5th home. Where had these babies been?’: Woman becomes single foster mom of 3 overnight, ‘Every sunrise deepens our love’

“I did one final check on them and climbed into my bed, only to be awakened by sobs. My sweet 3-year-old had a nightmare. Rocking her, I wondered how it felt to seek comfort in a stranger. She clung to me, sweaty and shaking, her little heart pounding. I wondered what weight this little soul carried. I didn’t believe adoption was my best option. I was wrong.”

‘I immediately kicked my boyfriend out of my parent’s house. He’d been cheating during my pregnancy. I questioned bringing a baby into a broken home.’: Single teen mom urges ‘you will achieve your goals’

“Those two little pink lines showed up. Just to be sure, we walked to the store to buy 6 more tests. Even though every single one of them were positive, it still didn’t seem real. My high school classmates were well on their way to grad school and post college careers. I questioned bringing a baby into an already broken home.”

‘Being a single mom by choice? Not the most common. I spent years hoping I’d find a husband, have kids. At 33, and several failed relationships later, I gave up. It was time to do it on my own.’ Single woman told she has ‘no fertility issues,’ faces battle in pursuit of pregnancy

“I was out shopping and went to the bathroom. My mom looked over at me, tears in my eyes, and asked what was wrong. I was bleeding! I prayed, thought good baby thoughts. After all, I had no fertility issues, right? Yet this went on for months. With each month, I lost hope. All I thought and dreamt about was having a baby. I cried thinking that might never be me.”
