  1. Thank you for sharing your journey as a single mom. My son is now 47 years old and I made a lot of mistakes, but I also got a lot of things right. Don’t give up on the male role models. Yes, some of the “community sports coaches” come with a price, but there are others. church members, coaches in school (free), mentors through non-profits (strong background checks), and of course other male family members (upon your approval). Remember you are doing an awesome job by loving him, encouraging him and understanding no one gets it right all of the time, no one. God’s Blessings!
