43. Mizmoon and msgadget--you guys are awesome!
You both remind me of my favorite success story--a fave relative. Forced to get married as a teen(by her mother) because she was pregnant. After later divorcing her husband and raising her kid alone--she got her hs diploma and eventually a college degree.

Anyone that has ever actually attempted to live on welfare (or knows one who has) knows the reality of the situation.

I was never on welfare (didn't qualify as I didn't have children), but I've been poor and on my own. It was no picnic by any means. My heart goes out to ANYONE that ever lived close to the way I did--add kids to the equation--wow.
