    These were so intersting! I am glad you shared. Along with Maggie Ann, I was also wondering what was the cause of so many single mom households.

    I’m not sure what the official opinion would be of the statistic for single moms. I have my own opinion for this, but do not wish to publish in order to be respectful of the people that we are trying to reach. If you would like to e-mail me privately, I would be glad to answer the question. Thanks for understanding.
