LaNee` Bridewell is the Wonder Parent behind OneParentWonder.com, a blog that is as practical as it is powerful in inspiring single mothers, young and old, broke and ballin’, near and far, black and white to lead wonderful and fulfilled lives with their children!

Her passion for helping young and single mothers began in 2009 when she gave birth to her son Jai during her sophomore year in college. By the time she was 16, both of her parents passed away which later contributed to a gross lack of support in raising her son. In spite of many failures and sets backs, LaNee` was able to overcome the challenges of caring for Jai on her own while working and being a full time student.

She has been a featured as a speaker for Teen Mothers of Preschoolers (MOP’s), Better Family Life, and various college courses and community organizations across the United States. She has also served as a panelist for the 2011 Missouri Educational Roundtable hosted by The Office of Senator Claire McCaskill, the University of Missouri Black Women in History and Culture: HERstory, in addition to facilitating workshops on diversity for college students and higher education professionals.
