Being a single mother

“I was always alone in the journey of my motherhood. My ex-husband did drugs and never supported my family. I decided to leave him as I felt that would be better for my family. I raised 3 of my children as a single mother with financial difficulties, until I met my AWWA social worker, Mdm Rafiah, who lifted many of my burdens. When I was younger, my siblings and I were put in a children’s home due to the mistakes my parents made. I never want my children to go through what I went through, and I use that as my motivation to work harder for them. My children are like my lucky charm, and they bring me joy, which is more than enough for me. I am happy with where I am today. I have an understanding boss who allows me to leave on time to fetch my children and also get a monthly income which has been supporting my family. It is not easy being a single mother, but I want to encourage all single mothers out there to be strong, and everything will fall into place. Our children did not ask to be brought into this world, but we can do our very best for them.”
