“I just felt compelled to write you about your article.  It was so truthful that I had to say “Bravo!”  I’m a single mother. I have two children, one of whom is paralyzed by spinal bifida and my husband left shortly after his birth. My trials raising these two children all alone was unbelievable. Raising a child who is paralyzed and had to undergo 17 surgeries before the age of 6 nearly did me in.  I had very little education and money and jobs were incredibly tough….Now I feel that leaving their abusive father was still the best thing I could have done for them, in spite of the poverty and shame we have had to endure…I’m proud to say both my children…are finishing college…my daughter is graduating with honors…Bravo for finally speaking the truth.”
