Meet Dresden Shumaker

I'm Dresden. I created my website in 2005 to chronicle my experience of being a single mom by choice. What I didn't expect to happen was that it would take a really long time and that I would actually end up writing a lot about taking care of my grandmother who had Alzheimer's. Eventually, I was able to chronicle my experience with infertility and then pregnancy and then being a mom. And, that's been where the best things about having a presence online is connecting with other moms that either are like me or that I admire. Being online is one of the most amazing things that moms can be. It's a great tool. You're never alone. I'm really happy to be a mom to my 3-year-old son. He's the coolest 3-year-old you'll ever meet, not even kidding. In my free time, my son and I like to go to the playground. We like to race his monster trucks down the slide. And, we've also become gourmet experts on finding the best milk shake in the Philadelphia area.
