Hey, I when I was a single mom and travelled with my daughter to Florida, they asked me where her father was... It's a good thing I had the letter, 'cause they were really suspicious when I said he lived in England. They interogated my daughter to validate my story, and the letter. This was pre-911.
I say, just do it. You never know who you're going to encounter at the border or what kind of mood their in. Who wants the hassle?
