What is a Solo Starter? A solo starter is a man or woman who has decided to take the steps towards parenthood on their own, without a significant other. An individual usually becomes a solo starter when they are approaching an age where having children might become challenging, and they don’t want to miss their window.
Why do I use the word “starter?” I like starter to remind us that just because we start out solo, doesn’t mean we end up solo. You may start down the path to becoming a parent on your own, but this doesn’t mean you’ll be alone forever. You are on you way to creating today’s true modern family.
There are a number of reasons someone may become a solo starter, and all are personal. I’m here to share my experiences with you as a solo starter from offering resources, stories (the good, the bad, the ugly), insights including expected expenses, options, etc.
I wish you the best on your journey to becoming a parent!
