If this Craigslist posting is a joke, I don’t get it. If the post is real, well it is heartbreaking.
Evidently, a single mother in Pittsburgh posted a listing in the personals section “Women seeking Men,” and it wasn’t for romance or a date, it was for someone to help take care of her and her baby.

Last I heard, there were resources out there that can help with things like food for families. Does going to a place like Craigslist in the personals section – hold more hope for help? Have our public resources become so slim or hard to get that this was this woman’s last resort? Or is this just a totally misguided call for help?
