Sister – She and her family live down the street and she’s 5 years older than me.

The Purpose of this Blog

The reason Dallas Single Mom got started was because a psychic told me to do it. Clairvoyant, Sandra Larson is a pet psychic and clairvoyant who first introduced me into the world of creating an online business or brand. She told me I’d be very good at it and here we are today. In February 2010 I was in a pretty big quagmire with regards to not receiving child support payments. So I created an additional income stream to make up for the child support money I was not receiving. It became something more and a way to give back to the community and provide a healthy outlet for the emotions and feelings I was having about this. Divorce, separation, child custody, the courts and CPS don’t make this process easier and many single mothers are in the same boat. Some single mothers face abuse, drugs, depression and even a life of crime. This site is to serve as hope for all and even those that fall from grace. Yes, it’s a messy story but we write our own endings.
