Description: Single motherhood and the children of single mothers have been the subject of overwhelmingly negative statistical analysis. Male children raised in single parent homes perform less well in school and have more trouble with the law; girls raised in single-parent homes more frequently get pregnant in their teens and often have problems bonding emotionally with men. But, Marita Golden asks in her inspiring new book, where is the complementary data? Where are the studies that analyze single-parent families for the strengths of the mothers, the positive coping and adaptive skills learned by the children, the support systems that help these families work?

"A Miracle Every Day" offers a close-up on the faces that inhabit the positive side of the numbers game, the people who defy the stereotypes. A collection of inspirational anecdotes, this uplifting book sends a positive message to single mothers and all those who have cast such a negative eye on them for so long. What Girlfriends did for friendship, Marita Golden does for flourishing single-mother families in "A Miracle Every Day", gathering these families' stories from her interviews and identifying the major internal and external resources they share. In so doing, she bestows a sense of self-esteem and confidence to her reader-mothers who often internalize the negative attitudes and prejudices of a society that barely gives them a chance.
