      I adopted a child as a single parent. She is well-adjusted and thriving in my home. Imagine her life if she had remained in an orphange!

      I've parented singly, married and divorced. My son's father and I throughout have worked hard to co-parent in a nurturing, thoughtful, loving manner. And we have a delightful, intelligent, fabulous, energetic and compassionate son. Frankly, our best parenting has been OUTSIDE of marriage. It's a piece of paper that hopefully reflects a couple's level of commitment -- it does NOT create that commitment.

      A child needs stable, loving adults in life. Let's work more on stability and less on the configuration of adults.

      I am an unmarried, single mother and resent the implications that this fact somehow makes my daughter "at risk." I'm sick to death of every social ill being blamed on single parents. While I agree that there can't be too many supportive, loving adults in a child's live, marriage is no guarantee.
