One Broken Mom

Ameé is not Mother of The Year. Nor is she is a parenting expert with degrees in child psychology. Ameé, in fact, failed at being a mother. <p>Her path to parenthood started with genuine intention and optimism. But unable to understand and manage her inner battles, her marriage ended and she left her husband of ten years as the custodial parent of their two small children. <p>For nearly seven years, Ameé was the "Weekend Mom" until circumstances changed and a wiser, willing Ameé was reunited with her kids and became a full-time single parent.
