    any local single moms by choice here? help needed

    Hello everyone

    My friend is in her late 30s and wanna be a mom and raise her baby on her own because the right guy hasn't come along yet. Anyone can share her experience with me here? I know you guys might do it for different reasons but I'd be grateful to hear from you!

    Cheers,
    Katie

    you will find that local chinese look down on single mothers. it is just not as acceptable in their culture as it is in western cultures.
    motherhood is extremely hard, even with two people, but if your friend is strong, she'll make a great mum!

    katie,

    Is your friend looking to adopt or looking to be pregnant to have a child?

    Thanks for your feedback very much.

    carang, my friend is very tough and she wants a baby very badly!

    sunniefaith, my friend is seeking both options.. do you know anyone who go through similar experience?

    Where else could I seek help? I really appreciate your help.

    not all locals look down on single moms. plus are you gonna care what people you don't know think? as long as your core group of family and friends are supportive, i think that's what matters most.

    i agree completely. i'm judging from things hubby has said and my experience trying to help a single mum a few years ago...

    We're in the process of adopting and we've met 2 single ladies but they're not from HK that are also in the process of adopting.

    Thanks much Sunnie Faith!

    It's very uplifting to hear someone would do the same thing as my friend. Are you and other two single ladies live here? Are you (and they) single?

    I heard only married couples can adopt. So how's the experience for you so far?

    You are welcome to chat with me via email.

    Thanks much
    Katie
