    Hi I too am glad that I found this group. I am leaving upstate New York for a better life for me and my kids. It's too expensive and our government works only when they have too. I have 5 kids but only 3 at home. I want a good size city with good schools and little crime but wanna be able to meet people my own age and diversity is important being I'm biracial any suggestions would be great but must be reasonably inexpensive. I'm hoping for the south or Pacific area

    Hello, I am glad to have came across this group. I have recently posted a message similar to this one but I don't think people quite understand how it is to be a single mother unless they are one. I am a single mother of 3; ages 19, 17 and 9 months old. I live in Charlotte, NC and am looking to relocate. I visited CA recently and loved it. I am considering Sacramento or Los Angeles. My 19 year old will be college bound this August, my 17 year old will be college bound next August. In a little over a year it will be just me and my baby. I am a Teacher. I have hear how expensive CA is and have done research and see how expensive it is. What I would like to know is it do able? Am I able to live off a teacher salary in CA? For starters I will get a 2 bedroom but eventually I would like more space so when my other 2 children come home to visit they have their own space. My ultimate goal is to buy a home.

    Hello all, I am the mom of a 12 year old boy, and expecting my second In mid October. I have been planning to move for a while now and would like to raise my son in another environment, like others to a larger town, or metro area where I can meet others like myself. I know there are other moms out there like me who feel like there is no hope, no one around who understands our family situations (single parent stigmas we sometimes cannot control) I know what you go through, staying strong for your little ones and for yourself. Sometimes we have little or no support due to small families, or like me being an orphan who has little family support or cannot afford our current locations any longer.
    I am considering Virginia, Arizona, or other areas where there may be a good presence of support for people like me. I am looking to move before August, thanks!

    Hello Everyone, I am glad that i was able to find a group like this. I am a single mother of 11 year old son. I am from Frederick,MD and have lived here my whole life and I am seeking change because living in a small town has its ups and downs. I don't want my son growing up in this town just because. I am looking to relocate to the Atlanta,GA area hopefully in August of 2016 or at least by the winter of 2016. I want to be in an area where the school system are really good. I am also looking for a job in the area for myself also. I am currently working for a school system now and would like to continue or even use my degree that i got in Medical Field. I really want to give my son a better life and myself also. I was hoping to get some suggestion and tip from someone. Thank you!!

    Hello everyone. I'm so glad I stumbled across this group. I am a single mom of four children however moving only with my nine-year-old daughter. I'm originally from Boston and have moved all over the place looking for the right fit for us. My 3 boys are older and living on their own so they are fine. But now it's just me and my daughter. From Boston I moved to New Hampshire and got engaged. Ended up being engaged to the devil so that didn't work. I then moved with my brother in Seattle Washington which was really a nice place but since he was married to the devil that didn't work out LOL. Finally my brother and I relocated to Georgia. He's in Gwinnett County and I'm in Fulton County and it's not at all what I expected as far as schools jobs politics and people...still not feeling it after 3 years here and I'm ready for a change. I really need stability for my daughter as well as myself. Iam looking at Silver Sprint MD and Washington DC where I've heard they have a ton of resources for kids after school programs enrichment programs Sports and so on. Ialso like the fact that iwon't be uber far from my family in Boston as well. I would like to get some input on the differences as well as pros and cons. Thanks a lot for taking the time to read my lil profile and hopefully I could get some great suggestions...I'm so torn so any input is awesome sauce as far as I'm concerned!! Thank you!!

    Hi everyone my name is K and I am looking to move from Savannah to Atlanta summer 2016. I am a single mom with two son 6&8 and I just graduated with my bachelor's looking to explore my opportunities and a fresh start. I'm nervous as this will be my first time moving outside of the military but I must take a chance. I'm looking to meet someone who is moving there also because just knowing one person can help a bunch..

    Hello Everyone! My name is Christina and I am in search of some advice. I am currently living in Lake County, CA. We recently went through a traumatic fire that burned over 1000 homes. So I am looking to either relocate back to Colorado, or to Florida.
    In St.Petersburg, Florida I have family, who would be willing to help me get back on my feet as much as they could. The thing is I don't know about what type of resources for single moms trying to get on their feet.
    In Colorado I can stay at a friends house temporarily and utilize the programs out there.
    I am getting fairly tired of the cold. I am looking to find a place for the long term. I have more of a bohemian mentality, and lean toward more progressive places. Oh and my children are 3 and 1, so I am hoping to find a good educational system for them. If anyone has an input it would be greatly appreciated. Many Thanks!

    Hello, everyone. My name is Amy. I am looking to relocate south were there is more warm weather than cold. I am a single mom with no family beyond my son. We are both on disability which means very low income. I am having an extremely difficult time finding a good place to go with the situation l am in. Does anyone have some ideas. We live in Pa and there are no opportunities for my son to prosper. Thank you for your time.
