These women are left to raise children, work, attend school events and pay the bills all by themselves. While many of these strong women strive to make things work, it comes at an emotional and mental cost. However, the women aren’t the only ones who deal with being a single parent. There are more than 2.5 million single fathers in the United States as well. These parents put everything on the line, and often put their own needs second, to make sure their children don’t want for anything.
