Parenting.com reported, "Unmarried women are now responsible for a whopping 36% of all births, according to the latest numbers from the U.S. Census Bureau." According to a University of Akron article, "Approximately 60 percent of U.S. children living in mother-only families are impoverished, compared with only 11 percent of two-parent families. The rate of poverty is even higher in African-American single-parent families, in which two out of every three children are poor."
- Pray for moms to be godly role models for their kids.
