All of Single Parents Network and its resources were,

Settle in look around and breath easier as we all get to know each other
We have been around since the 90's. We
started on an AOL web page in 1996 that is allowed members to create and there were 5 of us that used AOL instant messaging. As time went on and we were 2000 we used many free software to connect us is sharing our issues, like webring
[sold to yahoo, then abandoned by yahoo], we were at geocities [bought by yahoo, and turned to groups] and onelist [an e-mail discussion e-mail system, sold to yahoo and also turned into groups] and a few others communities, that too
were sold to others and/or then gobbled up by yahoo. All that bouncing around or shutting down and they lost information, so I decided to buy software so we did not lose information and discussions and friendships. So in 1997 I put
money aside and out of my pocket bought the best webware and software that I could find and started building the largest, oldest, stable single parent online community on the web. And well, here we are, over 75,ooo member strong in
all areas of the network with about 30,000 members adding their voice to the discussions on parenting issues
I'm am/was not trying to invent something new, but to pull in all the resources for easier find, and share what worked,
what didn't... So If you have a webpage or single parent group and need a stable forum, just ask and I will share the resources here with you in one way or another. Link exchange, host an area so your webpage or group has/have a
forum, or a place to add your articles ... so much more - Im always looking for hosts, state forum admins, support staff etc...
As a community and family, we laugh, and cry with each other, we even become frustrated with each
other and at times, stop chatting and well yea, sometime we have been know to date each other. And that too, turns out one way or another and well... and its all here for posterity, so PLEASE use a screenname for security
As with all families, and yes, we seem to become family to each other, and with all families, we swallow our pride, give that hug and say Thank You, I guess I really needed that wake up call. Then, as all family stories go,
we move on to the next chapter of our lives. Growing stronger... together.
So, Again Welcome & Membership is Free
... though, I can take donations, :) so when
you like or when you can and/or find our educational support helpful, just drop me a dime or two to help...
for the most part, I finiacially pay for all of it out of my own pocket, and forgo some stuff to offer this to others ... I
trully wish this was all here when I needed, so I hope this help you NOW, so you dont have to do as much suffering as I did.
Or you can just surf the site to get your feel and see if your questions have already been asked and/or answered.
We will always be here, so join ANYTIME.
As with most members, we all seem to be addicted to Single Family Voices and all that Single Parents Network offers.
