New Baby

Last night I took dinner over to a friend of mine who just had a healthy baby girl.  She has two boys also.  It is a happy occasion marred by the fact that her divorce will be final in a few weeks.  I don’t know the details, and don’t really want to know; it’s none of my business.  I’m just so sad for her, and the kids.  How awful to have a baby alone.  It’s hard enough to raise kids with a husband.  I know there are so many single mothers out there now, and they manage, but I wonder how much comfort my friend will get from the fact that she has a lot of company.  It won’t make her workload any lighter, or make the kids miss their daddy any less.
