RROAMM, good idea. In case you haven’t seen them, there are a few already here. Just as one (not to slight the others), you might want to go back and look at Leopard’s posts in the South Africa thread. She does into some detail about what she’s experienced, particularly a a single mom, what protections she’s got in place, etc. And if you know some women with the background to write some good posts, please invite them to join us and post in the appropriate topics/threads.
