Karen this made tears come to my eyes. I spent the better part of my kids' childhood attending events alone and at first it was difficult but over time I realized it was easier than being with someone I no longer loved and who often just wasn't there anyway. The joy of watching Ian and Katie grow up surpassed any thoughts that it would be better to have a partner, and although I too am now in a relationship that is long distance he will never be part of their lives the way that a father is. Meghan's mother was a beacon for single moms everywhere and that she chose to go alone made me proud.
