I never knew about a Single Parent community in Bangalore , until I attended an event on a Sunday evening with Phoenix Family members on the topic - Into the heart of a single parent . There I saw a bunch of likeminded people who had also gone through their episode of hardship , battled against their darkness of loneliness , just like me .
Over the last 8 years , I just focused on my negatives , felt hopeless and it was really hard . My fears where many. Was I being a good role model ? Was I teaching them life lessons ? Was I able to give them enough guidance ? But my whole perspective of life changed after meeting the Phoenix Family .They helped me to look at things with fresh eyes . Being a part of Phoenix family means to be in the company of someone who won't gamble with your heart , they give you honest answer right from their heart . Am happy to be a part of a phoenix family .
After the sudden dismissal of my loving husband, life for me and kids was like paused... we lost all the fun, laughter’s and family times we used to have together as a family … upon forced invitation I used to attend some gatherings and found that I don’t have anything common to talk nor anyone in this world had time to know what was happening in mine and kids life ... One fortunate day got to know about this Family and a it happened that I and kids were part of an event and I got to meet most wonderful, patient, and loving people of this family … all were just like me and going through lives challenges alone and still each one was so persistent enough to listen to family members issues and give support n encourage them as much as possible.. . I had a strong feeling that there is a family which cares for me and kids too ... at times when I felt low and to my surprise I would get a message from the admin or by any members of this family, just ask how I am and if I needed any help .. Its gods greatest blessings that I n my kids are part of this family. Thanks to Admin for going that extra mile to be there for all the family members … god bless and keep this going
