    She says in a touching Mother's Day weekend Facebook post that odds are stacked against single moms. She says many live in poverty, work two jobs or don't have paid leave to care for themselves or children if they get sick.

    She calls on leaders to rethink public and corporate work force policies to better support single mothers. Sandberg's husband, Dave, died in a treadmill accident a year ago while on vacation in Mexico.
