I was homeless...  
I completely forgot to add this to my list of little known facts, I don't think I've written about it much, but I was homeless when I was young and pregnant, then again when I had two small children. It's been many years now but that fear still cuts deep and every time my housing is threatened in some way I have nightmares.

Homelessness is, of course, not something only addicted, alcoholic or severely mentally ill people experience. It's not that hard to fall from lower middle class down to poverty and on to a homeless state.

Sometime I'll tell the story, I am working on a report tonight so I can't do it now.

I find that so harsh...doesnt USA have any type of safety nets for single mothers and families? I hope that you will always have a safe, warm and beautiful home and never have to be in that position again.

Re: Homelessness
I wasn't a single mother at the time. Once I became one I was never homeless again.

Thanks, I hope I do too. :)
