    I remember a friend of my auntie who left home to travel the world. She was a traveling nurse and came to find out that she ended up in Australia. There she gave birth to a little boy and when she returned everyone was stunned to learn about this. She actually ran away from her home so she could raise the boy away from the father since he walked out on her. Back in the 1960’s it was not acceptable to be a single mother.
