Juggling multiple work and family priorities makes it tough for single moms ... and having to deal with criticism and judgment makes their journey evenmoredifficult.

You'd think that in 2010, the stigma against single moms would have lost its sting. But according toEssence.com, 56 percent of people polled still believe that single moms are not respectable. That's shocking -- especially considering the fact that there are more than 10 million single moms in America who gracefully juggle childcare issues, financial problems and anxiety -- all by themselves.

Unfortunately, single mothers are often depicted as unemployed, uneducated "babymamas." Many real-life single moms, though, are the opposite of that stereotype -- and they're tired of the unfair, negative characterizations. Lucky for them, there's Project Single Moms (PSM) -- a website community created by the New Jersey nonprofit organization My Daughter's Keeper, Inc. According to their website, PSM hopes to empower single mothers by "equipping [them] with information, tools and access to people and opportunities to help them accomplish their personal and professional goals" (among other things).

Wow. I’m a single mom — and a single mom through adoption, so there’s REALLY no dad on the scene. (No child support checks or weekends at dad’s house over here.) Never once have I felt that anyone thought I was negatively characterized. Quite the opposite, really.
