*intruder alert - not a single parent*
I just wanted to suggest/recommend this book http://www.bookdepository.co.uk/Whos.../9781883672669
It describes lots of different kinds of families and defines a family as "the people who love you the most". It includes same sex couples, only child, extended families, blended families and single families.

As a teacher, I teach that families are all different and no one family is the same. When I look at my class, the sterotypical family of mum and dad etc is actually in the minority.
Some have step families (like mine), grandparents as main carers, dad away for 6 months of the year etc, a mum and dad, 2 mums etc.

Are we a family?
Maybe im jilted and go against the grain.but i think a family has at least 2 adults working together not one adult doing it all.

Are we a family?
Broken home....how are you teaching kids about sharing or getting along with others when your doing it all by yourself or run away when it gets tough.I did all the cooking ,cleaning .getting kids to bed but still tried to work things out.but yes i spose sometimes people have to "break"family.but its still broken.As far as a widow very sad but still a broken family.
Maybe im wrong.but i work and have young kids half the time and it sucks not a good family where kids go back and forth no security and always missing me when gone.then the finacial dificulties.
