Season 2: Episode 10 – Jennifer Smith

Jennifer Smith is an awesomely smart, intelligent and gorgeous teacher, nurse, author and a single mother of two teenagers with a passion to care for and educate others. Her journey through adulthood and motherhood inspired her to write her first book, "Stay On Your Birth Control", to make childless women and men aware of what it's like being a single parent. In today's world, it seems like being a "single mother" or "single father" is the norm but single parenthood is far more than a title. Single parents are raising an entire human being.
