My curiosity was becoming

My curiosity was becoming more and more aroused. The meeting with Cupertino, the muttering about the past of Salvatore and his cellarer, the more and more frequent references to the Frantically and the heretic Minorities I had heard in those days, my master’s reluctance to speak to me about Far Dolin .

Let me tell all you people

Let me tell all you people with no kids, bashing single mothers, sure a lot of people have made mistakes...yes thats what they are MISTAKES no one is perfect, and not every situation is the same . I am hard-working single mother I have a career and my son is well taken care of. i do not receive child support, i am not a gold-digger, i support myself by myself , and if i did i'm sure most people could not survive off of 60-80 dollars a week. I've never seen so much negative attitudes before in my life, i dont know if the people that come on this site or bitter, but I'm glad that someone is doing something positive for women who are single mothers who don't have the support of their family or the father. Christmas time is really hard time of the year, and I'm glad someone is extending a helping hand.

For the people on here making

For the people on here making negative comments, SHAME ON YOU!!! Remember God doesn't like ugly and it's apparent that you all with the negative comments are ugly as hell on the inside, and maybe THAT is the reason why you are continuing to struggle. Stop being so selfish and more selfless. Maybe if you can be a blessing to someone, you will then be blessed abundantly. Until then.......
Why you gotta be anonymous's picture

Wow! I'm surprised at all

Wow! I'm surprised at all these negative comments. How are going to be mad at somebody for trying to help someone else out? The man is trying to do a good deed and everybody got something negative to say. How about when you get into a good enough financial space you can give $1000 to who ever the hell you want, until then don't hate on someone's situation or philanthropy.

Single mama?? What about single daddy's? Struggling college students? Unemployed? Most single mama's make dumb ass mistakes therefore, they deserve 2 be in their situation.

its really said that you feel that way. most single black mother's are in their situation from trusting their hearts to dead beats who end up leaving them or they were in a relationship with a person and things just didnt work. It's not about their mistakes, life just happens

Damn.. Signle mothers get all

Damn.. Signle mothers get all the good deals. I cant get a college grant because I make too much money to NOT be a parent... I get murdered in taxes every year... Now THIS. Enough is enough. And sometimes these single moms aint struggling because they live off of the child support. So whatev. HO HO HO.

Get your facts straight. Okay

Get your facts straight. Okay you make too much money to get a grant because the only person you are caring for is you! You get murdered in taxes for the same reason. Being single with no dependents sucks but it means that you are working for you..no child needs the money you bring home. But let me say this don't down a mother who has raised kids with no child support because of a no good man thought the grass was greener on the other side. You may find yourself in the same boat. Trust me it is not fun nor easy..nor would I go back and do it again.

Not to be disrespectful, but

Not to be disrespectful, but nobody told these women to go out and have kids for men who can't afford them, or even to have them, when THEY can't afford them. I understand that we are living in the here and now, and the facts are that these women are having these kids anyways, and it's not fair to let these kids suffer, but I can't feel sympathetic for women who choose to have kids when they are too broke to take care of themselves.
NikNak's picture

I know you said that you were

I know you said that you were not trying to be disrespectful, but this comment was very disrespectful. First, not all single mothers have babies by men who can not afford to take care of the, so please get that straight. Second, if a women gets pregnant, it is her choice to keep the child or abort it. I had my son when I was in my last year of college. I was engaged to his father when it happened. About three months after he found out I was pregnant, he began cheating on me. I called off everything, finished school, and got a job. I went back to graduate school, paid for by myself, and finished and got a better job. I have supported my child by myself as his father does not want to deal with him because I won't take him back. And sweetie, let me tell you that today, I own my own business, drive a nice care, and have purchased my second house. In the beginning it was a struggle to take care of my son because I was not working, nor did I get any assistance from the government. So I am saying this to you, because what you have just done is stereotyped all single mothers into a general category and you can't do that. Heck, as a single mother, my child has participated in more things that his friends from married families and have traveled more than them as well. So take this comment and stick it where the sun don't shine because all of us are not bad.

Eb's picture

I congratulate you mspriss,

I congratulate you mspriss, but I'm talking about the women who always expect a handout, or to be treated as if they have some kind of disability b/c they decided to lay up w/o a condom. I'm a huge proponent of family planning, and the truth is these women pop up pregnant like they don't know what birth control or abstinence is, then they come w/ the sob story. And as much as you were engaged and then your ex (shockingly) turned out to be an a-hole, the fact of the matter is you wouldn't have had to struggle so hard if you were more careful about your contraceptives. It is not that hard to take a pill/get a shot/insert an IUD.

Soooo.....Let me say this...I am a single mother...been that way for 15 going on 16 yrs. I was married to my daughter's father...divorced...and hes has not been in the picture since the papers were signed. I didnt ask for help...I went out and got a JOB! Its damn 2010...not 1950 where women are housewives and and stay at home cooking and cleaning! Lets be real...they created a show just so we laugh @ "Housewives"! If you have children...take responsibity for them, you created them...why is is someone else's responsibility to take care of them for you? Children are NOT your meal ticket for the next 18 yrs! The "single mother" plite gets on my damned nerves! But i will co-sign the rent is too damned high...along with gas prices! Tasha hold a contest for free gas or groceries for a year...thats something WE can ALL relate too!

welp i see this post turned negative real quick but i like that he's doing this and they YBF jumped on board. i mean, it is tough if u have to resort to having to raise a child alone. that was NEVER God's intention so hopefully we leave from those premartial mistakes so that our kids will not have to go through that.

LMBO! Let's try rewarding

LMBO! Let's try rewarding COLLEGE GRADUATES WITHOUT CHILDREN who are struggling to make student loan payments and are unemployed due to the recession. #BlackPeople applaud each other for OUR bad choices. If you intentionally had unprotected sex with someone who was NOT your husband, fuck your situation. I have no sympathy for you bishes.

You were very capable of

You were very capable of going to school and making the grades to get scholarships and other forms of support. No one told you to go out and take out all those student loans. Whose fault is it that you chose the wrong major? You should have taken on something that was recession proof. Your probably unemployed because you think your too good to work the jobs that cause you to work a little harder than usual. So like hell no one has sympathy for your broke unemployed ass.
