They had planned to trek across the world, a couple of newlyweds from Southern California and their infant daughter. The Greek isle of Mykonos was as good a starting place as any. They didn't need much money. He taught scuba diving; she was a manicurist. But by their daughter's first birthday, she hadn't said a word--not even baby talk. She hadn't taken a step, either. Her rattles held no interest. Six months later, nothing had changed. Actually, everything had changed.

Stirling, who died in April, was a Huntington Beach resident and founder of the Orange County Single Parent Homemaker in Transition Network. The group formed in 1991 to promote and coordinate services to help single parents and homemakers in transition to achieve self-sufficiency.

A Long Beach man who lost his bid to stop his ex-girlfriend from returning to Harvard University with their infant daughter said Monday that he will not relocate to Massachusetts with them. Tommaso Maggiore, 21, said last month that he planned to find a job and an apartment near Cambridge, Mass., to be closer to his daughter. But after a series of confrontations this month with the child's mother, Gina Ocon, he said he changed his mind.

Two parents decide to call it quits and have to wrestle over custody of their child. That story unfolds every day in courtrooms across the country with little notice from the public or media. But a Long Beach case, in which a couple battled over whether the mother could leave town with their 10-month-old daughter to attend Harvard University, touched a public nerve like few such cases recently. It drew the attention of everyone from commentators to movie producers. Why?

One topic consistently offends readers of this column: single mothers on public assistance--especially ones who do not conform to the stereotype of what a welfare mother should be. Last week, I told the story of Barbara Lewis, a 47-year-old mother of four, who just graduated from USC. Scholarships paid her way through school. Welfare paid her rent. In August, because she has received a Ford Foundation grant, she will no longer be eligible for welfare.

For a group of 15 single mothers, Thursday marked the end of a one-month journey of self-understanding that could guide them from unemployment through college and on to careers. The women were students in an unusual women's studies class at Irvine Valley College designed to prepare single mothers for the often intimidating world of college life.

Noreen Garcia says she never enjoyed getting welfare and has worked on and off for a decade while she raised her daughter alone, resorting to government help only when she lost a job or a baby-sitter. "It's very embarrassing. People stare at you when you cash your check or go in a store with food stamps," Garcia said. "They don't understand not all of us want to be on it."

Tommaso Maggiore, the Long Beach waiter who lost a bid to stop his ex-girlfriend from leaving California with their infant daughter to finish school at Harvard University, said Thursday that he has decided to move to Cambridge, Mass., to be closer to his child. "It's kind of like a gut instinct is telling me this is the right thing to do," said Maggiore, who had contended in court that it was unfair for his daughter, Bailey, to be moved across the country.
