Single motherhood after an abusive relationship is unique.  Women who leave their abusers often do so knowing they will never be able to contact their children’s father for financial or parental help again.  Looking for support can lead to endangering themselves and their children.  They leave and never look back.  During the relationship family and friends have often been alienated, and the world has been revolving around the abuser for years.  After the initial dust of empowerment mixed with freedom settles, loneliness rears its ugly head.  This page is here to offer support and coping skills for single moms who are going it alone after abuse.
