March 21 is National Single Parent Day.
“A single mother has a backbone made of steel and a heart made of gold.”
We want to take the opportunity to celebrate the brave, amazing, strong single moms we serve here at the clinic.
Many of our clients have taken on the challenge of parenting without a partner.
We are here to support them. To say, “Yes, you can!” the whole world is shouting “No, you can’t”.
Narisa is a single mom who came to us when she was pregnant with her second child. She knew from the start the father of the child would not be supportive. Her mother told her that there was no way that she could have the career she wanted if she had this child. However, Narisa knew deep down that she wanted to be a mother to this child. Narisa’s client advocate was on Narisa’s side, helping her to get connected with support and programs in the community to help her during and after her pregnancy.
That is our job, to take our client’s side and advocate for them no matter what.
Today, not only is Narisa an amazing mother, she got her RN certification and is a fantastic nurse!
