Woman finds black family ties remain strong
www.theheraldbulletin.com, 25 Nov 2001 [cached]
To call Mary busy would be to state the obvious.What is not so obvious is why some one with a degree from Harvard would want to return to Madison County, where the latest census shows that fewer than 20 percent of the people have bachelor's degrees.
Mary came back to Anderson in 1997 to be close to her family.
Mary is named after her mother, who works at the Women of the Church of God ministry.Mary's father, Ted, is the director of scholarships and annual programs for Anderson University.All the Baker children, now grown, take their names from other family members.
Brother Ted bears his father's moniker and oldest sister Rebecca is named after an aunt, as is his youngest sister, Leah.Mary's son Stephen takes his name from Mary's brother.
...
"We have a strong sense of tradition in our family," Mary said when asked about repetition of names."We have strong ties."
Those strong ties are what took Mary away from the big city and back home to Indiana, she said.
"I just got tired of the big city," she said."I wanted to go home."
She also had another reason to come back to her family in 1997.She was about to become a single mother.
As a single mom, Mary is part of a growing trend in Madison County.The number of single parents in Madison County has increased by 10 percent since the last census.
Mary said that she did not want to discuss the circumstances surrounding her situation, but did want to set the record straight about single parenting and the meaning of family.
"My son and I are family," she said."Right now, our situation may look a little different than what I grew up with, but it is just as loving."
To help balance her need to earn a living and to raise little Stephen, Mary turned to the church and family.
Whenever Mary goes off to work, Stephen is off to the day care center at Park Place Church of God.Mom and Dad are handy, too.
"They are wonderful grandparents," Mary said."Stephen gets the double blessing of having them."
Additionally, Leah, Stephen's godmother, and fellow church members help babysit.
In a way, it is like Stephen, who Mary said has an interest in dinosaurs and all things green, has a family that consists of more members than he'll ever be able to count.
Still, Mary has to wrestle with the accusations some may make that a single parent is not as good for a child as two.
"Everybody has some situation that they consider ideal," she said."Right now, my situation looks a little different than that."
