Without judgment, this book lays out helpful guidelines and possible pitfalls that face a young, single woman who cares for her child but refuses to lose her ambition. Money management, relationship issues, funding higher education, and other ways to start fresh without starting over are discussed. By rethinking options, reevaluating plans, and working hard, young mothers can learn to integrate their new families into their plans for themselves, and get back on track to realizing their dreams.
