Yes, my DD is 26 yo today - 01/06/2008 (my DS is 4 yrs 5 mos)
I was a single Mama @ 20 & no help in any way from her bio-crap dad.
She was 4 mos old the last time he saw her.
my parents & her bio-dad's family helped when they could.
There was hardly any help for single Mamas in 1982 - no family leave, etc.

she's a great, smart caring young woman.
for all the single Mamas out there... stay positive !

She is lovely! You must be super proud and rightly so. Congrats to you and happy bday to her.

I was doing the math while watching the slide show and thinking "Wow I was 7 then..." I am only 6 years or so older than her.
