Whenever I am introduced to someone named Sarah, the first thing that comes to mind is how she spells her name. Is it Sarah with an ‘h’ or without?
Ever since I discovered Rachel Sarah, I knew there was no way I could ever forget her name, or her writing. She’s everywhere. And I mean that in a good way. I picked up a copy of her book, Single Mom Seeking, while I was going through my divorce. I loved the idea of living vicariously through Rachel as I read her story about dating as a single parent.
Slowly, I beg an to immerse myself in everything having to do with being a single parent and soon started to share stories online of my transition from married life to being a single mom.
Not long into my blogging “career,” I was honored to be invited to be a part of the Single Parents Connection on Facebook. Rachel was one of the people who put it together and I was thrilled to be listed among her and some other amazing writers ( Mary Pols, for example).
There are so many women and men out there who are successful at managing work and family and many who are also single parents. Rachel Sarah is one of them and is a true inspiration to me. She’s a terrific writer, an amazing mom and a woman who I can definitely relate to. I hope to be able to buy her a drink someday or thank her in person for helping me get through one the most challenging stages of my life, so far.
