Hello my fellow blog-mates and friends! I would like to take a moment to introduce you to Ms. Single Mama, Alaina Sheer. Her story is one that is in many ways familiar, but exceptionally unique. She had a marriage that like 50% of marriages in this country didn't make it, but instead of letting it be her "the end", she focused her situation and energy into a blog, an e-book, and series of You Tube Videos that equate to a life uninterrupted. Having grown up with a single parent, I know that there were many nights when my mother felt like taking us (there were three of us), dropping us off somewhere, and wishing us luck, but I also know my mom had a strength not to be matched by the strongest body-builders. My mom is a survivor and I see that in Alaina. Even more than surviving, Alaina thrives and encourages other people to do the same. From her v-log questions, and pics, to her candid advice on things that really matter to single parents, Alaina has proven that she has a wisdom and strength at a young age that can only be admired and applauded. I truly love her transparency and just "her-ness" that many of us can relate to whether married or not, and I appreciate that she is willing to share it with us. I hope that you will check out her pages, videos, and yes, Facebook: she has terrific give-aways and events for married and single moms and dads alike. Oh, and you have to go to her blog to find out some awesome news about her and a special someone in her life ;) As always, Happy Blogging!
