Perhaps no person in the country could better exemplify the extraordinary strengths and capabilities of single Moms than the later former president Corazon “Cory” Aquino. While she was widely credited for bringing back democracy in our land, she was also much praised for single-handedly raising her children during the time when her late husband Ninoy was incarcerated for eight years in Fort Bonifacio. With Sheer combination of guts and faith, single moms can, like Cory did, take control of their situation- especially so when they have the law on their side.
WHO ARE SINGLE MOMS?
To clarify, “single mom” is not a legal term. Under the Solo Parents Welfare Act of 2000, single moms are legally called “solo parents”. Solo Parents primarily because they have “responsibility of parenthood,” meaning they have a child or dependent under care.
