    Nancy's Family Album

    Finally happy Single Family

    I was relunctant to send a family photo because my family is just myself & my son, then I put a lot of thought into it & realized there are a lot of us single moms & having a husband does not make a happier family.
    I have been single for 9 years following the death of my beautiful sister and niece (who was 6) by the hands of a drunk driver. Through much depression, struggles, & divorce I am finding myself again. I have found comfort in watching Nancy Grace not ever missing a single night, if i'm not home it is recorded. Her passion for victims is definately a subject I relate to. I am a VERY prouId mama of a sweet, amazing 11 year old boy, Carson. Since his birth I finally know what I was put on this Earth to do... be his mommy! : ) We spend our time going to every Oklahoma City Thunder games & OU football , super hero movies, & planning our next trip to Disneyworld. I just want other single families to know being single does not mean you are broken!
    I LOVE, LOVE Nancy Grace & my son always ends up putting his game down & watching it with me. : )
