Moms are celebrated for all of the super heroic deeds we do; deeds we’re able to do because we usually have a familial support system… and a societal one.
But if you’re a single mom, your life simply isn’t the same as your married friends’. Your family makeup is different, your mindset is different, your overall life is different. An ordinary day might look nothing like what others might expect it to look, so just imagine on special occasions, vacations, or even holidays.
Perhaps there is a real stigma, or it’s just in the heads of the single moms, but the fact of the matter is that many have expressed a feeling of exclusion in settings where both parents are expected to gather and participate.

Do they think that she just wouldn’t fit in, or are they assuming that she’d feel uncomfortable?
