About the Book

Dibs and Dabs of My Life shows how change can affect one’s lives. Fear has overtaken contentment; homes are one-parent homes; mothers work outside of the home; children ride busses to school instead of walking to neighborhood schools. Dibs and Dabs of My Life shows, in a real-life situation, the changes that have taken place in a matter of a few years. It also shows that with hard work, integrity, and perseverance, one can overcome the negativity of a one-parent family.
