Kristi Santana Foster is the 29-year-old Solo Mom of sons Clayton (seven) and Christian (four). She says, “They are my life. I have been through so much, and those babies are the reason I am still breathing!”

Her greatest challenge is working two jobs and parenting one child with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and oppositional defiant disorder, and another child who’s developmentally delayed by two years. Kristi must cope with a different day care for each kid and doesn’t have any family or friends to help yet she stresses, “I would not change a thing. These boys are amazing, stubborn, funny, smart, loving, accident-prone, and love the dirt!”

Kristi’s Solo Mom tip is, “Never let anyone tell you that you can’t do anything you put your mind to. Being a single mom is amazing; I get my boys all to myself! Patience is key!

Congrats, Kristi, for being a Solo Mom Superhero!
