There are millions of kids in the world who grow up and get raised by single parents.
However, even though they may grow up to be just fine, it can sometimes make a kid feel as there’s “something missing”, or that they have less than other kids who have two parents.
Whitney Kittrell is a single mother that took it to Facebook to share a powerful post on her page about raising her son as a single mom.
She decided to write about the pain she felt when her son came home from school one day and brought a flyer for an outing the school was having named “Dads and doughnuts”.
She asked the boy if he wanted to go with his grandpa, but her son said that he wants to go with her, because she was his mom and his dad. So, she decided to share the photo of herself dressed in her “best dad outfit”, and she captioned the photo with this:
Needless to say, her touching opening moved so many people, and more than 116,000 of them shared it. Thousands of them went on to comment and thank Whitney for being such an amazing example for her son!
