017 - When Your Life Unexpectedly Falls Apart - How One Single Parent Created Her Own Extended Family and Village

Posted on February 13th, 2018

Life doesn’t always go as planned. Candy is a superstar legal assistant at Hemminger Law Group Westshore who unexpectedly became a single parent.


Despite having a partner and a plan when she became pregnant, the partner left Candy to have the child as a single parent, pulling the carpet out from under her.


While this was devastating and brought a wave of challenges, it hasn’t stopped Candy from doing what’s needed to create a rich and satisfying life for both her and her child.


Candy and her ex-partner have even been able to do things together as a family, for the sake of the child, even though each parent lives in a different home and there is no romantic relationship.
