My boys were three and four when I became a single-mother, and like many divorced women, I felt a new sense of empowerment and the urge to don a self-knitted pussy hat (even though those weren’t a thing yet.) At the top of my list of ways to help the world, was ensuring that my children did not grow up to be like their father. I immediately started working to support our little family. I also went back to school.
