This article briefly depicts the life of a person who struggles day to day with life problems and has yet to find a solution. Feedback is requested along with comments and suggestions.

I ran into a girl who was no more than 21 years of age and I took a liking to her because she was an interesting person. Who would have known that her life was an unforgiving battle of things she couldn't change and heart aches she couldn't let go. Growing up she told me that she had a hard life and throughout it struggled trying to find herself and all at the same time when she thought she discovered herself she hadn't. There was no one available to guide her in the right direction and she didn't have anyone to look up to who she could model her life after seeing how her family was uneducated and not making progress towards living a better life. She got pregnant at 15 delivered at 16 and was emancipated and moved out on her own. The whole time this was being told to me i was speechless because I would never have known her struggle if she didn't feel comfortable telling me. Her child father died when he was one and she was forced to raise a child from scratch with no assistance. She found work and continued schooling graduated from high school and a year later went to college where she is still attending currently. Her son is now 4 and she is still living where she doesn't want to live is very smart but lacks guidance and  inspiration. Her goals in life is to move from where she is living currently and be completely self-sufficient. She wants to own her own home  and doesn't want to rent but lacks to know how and support system to help her through. If you could be that one person to motivate or provide guidance to see her through then please leave your comments and feedback. If any questions arise from this brief summary of her life let me know and I will Provide information needed. This is a task amongst tasks and reach out to the whole world to get suggestion and wisdom so that I may pass it on. I have helped her as much as possible but know I want to see what others think about the situation.

This young lady is representative of many young women that I have seen in black communities who are struggling to find a way to survive with their children in tack. I talk about this kind of issue all the time, and one of the things that I’ve mention in many of my articles is that this is a growing problem, but it is a problem that can only be solved if the folks in the community create a think tank and a support group for their own communities.  I don't know this young lady’s particular circumstances but from what you revealed in your article I would suggest that she try to get into a support group that will assist her in meeting her and her son's needs. Whether it is financial, educational or buying a home there are some support systems that will help her meet those goals. If she can’t find a support system within her neighborhood then get together and start one.
