11 Promises for the Single Mom

Today’s post is a two-part series by my friend, Samantha Ferguson. She’s an amazing single mama and photographer in Birmingham, Alabama. If you are looking for someone to take some great family photos, make sure you check out His Hands Photography.

I was researching a few months ago about encouraging things to say to a single mom and I came across a blog post from Huffington Post. It was sweet, perfect, and FUNNY!

From Huffington Post, 7 things to say to a single mom:

  1. Your kid is going to be so proud of you.
  2. Of course it’s OK to leave him/her with a babysitter!
  3. It’s also totally OK if you didn’t reeeeeally miss your baby too much.
  4. A family is a family, no matter who the major players are.
  5. Your hair looks great!
  6. You are enough.
  7. You’re doing awesome.
