  • Choice Mama-hood?

Are you contemplating single motherhood?  Mr. Right hasn't appeared but you think you might want to be a mother. Single motherhood is an exciting and daunting proposition. It raises a host of questions.  For me, it took over a year of contemplating before I could make the decision. It was critical to have someone working with me to point out various stuck points and to reflect back to me what I was really saying.

  • Can I afford it?
  • If I am a single mama, will I ever date again?  Will it be impossible to find Mr. Right?
  • Can I face using a sperm donor?  Can I deal with knowing very little about the donor?
  • Do I know anyone I could ask for sperm? If so, what would our relationship be like?
  • Will I be able to raise a child alone?
  • What will it be like for the child not to know his/her biological father or construct another non-traditional relationship with a known donor.
