Single Mom by Choice
If you have been thinking about having or adopting a child as a single parent, if you are in the process of trying to become a single mother, or if you are parenting as a single mother by choice, then come join the conversation. This roundtable will discuss things like: how to start, what single parenting really looks like, how to tell your family, friends or even your child, or different ways of becoming a single mother by choice. Come for a casual discussion about becoming a single mother by choice and to connect with others on the journey. (Note: This is not a discussion for single mothers by divorce, but for women who, at least initially, start the process as a sole parent).
