Too much attention to statistics and trends about single parenting can lead one to overlook the good news. There are plenty examples of single parents of modest to low-income who have beat the odds and found success and happiness in life. Some of our readers are single parents and all of us probably know single parents who are doing well. Several years ago the Journal of Blacks in Higher Education offered a remarkable story of four single mothers who beat the odds. Several attended Columbia College in Columbia, Missouri. We invite our readers to share with us their stories about single parenting. It may seem corny, but stories of success in single parenting can inspire others as well as offer strategies for life-long happiness.
