New Zealand's best website for single parents to interact, network and find information on single parenting. Loneliness is one of the big factors that single parents find themselves experiencing. I am an admin for a Facebook support group for single parents, and loneliness quite often comes up as a topic of discussion. Whether it's once the kids are in bed at night, or they have gone to spend time with their other parent, or you have an important celebration to attend, or you are just climbing into a cold bed at night wishing you had someone to cuddle up to, loneliness rears its ugly head. I see loneliness as a process that you go through as you adjust to being on your own, and learning to find yourself. I won't deny it, I still get fleeting bouts of loneliness, but that is all they are these days, just fleeting moments of wanting someone to cuddle up to, to talk about my day, and to make plans with.

Lonely moms in Auckland
It wasn't my goal in life to be a single mother. My three beautiful children were planned when I had a career, a house, and a husband. I lost all three of those things just before my youngest child turned 2. So began my life of being a single mother of three. At this point I was at rock-bottom.
