A dad wrote a letter on FaceBook after the mother of his child took off when the baby was only 1-month-old

Being a single parent is pretty difficult since you need to be the mom and the dad for a little kid that has no idea what the world looks like and is constantly curious about everything! The second most common family arrangement is known to be a single mother, the percentage of which is 23 based on the Census Bureau’s annual America’s Families and Living Arrangements table! Even according to this table, the chances of the mother being the single parent is way higher than the chance of the dad being the single parent, however, Richard Johnson is the single 'dad' we are going to talk about today.

We have heard about the post-pregnancy depression and the difficulties that ladies go through before, during and after pregnancy, however, it is not common for them to abandon their child during this time. The case we are going to tell you the story of, Richard Johnson’s life, is, however, the unlucky one. After the mother of his child gave birth to her, she left Richard and took away with their kid, Persephone. Not long after that, she could not take it so she threatened Richard to put the kid for adaptation if he does not come to get her and the 21-year-old dad did!

After having the baby, the realized the new circumstances he was in and how he was not at all ready for any of that! It is not easy for a lady to raise a child on her own, let alone a man who is more alienated to this than a lady! He then started going through a page on FaceBook called "Life of Dad" which evidently turned out to be a lifesaver for him and motivated him throughout the whole thing he was facing. There he found so many dads just like him. Following this, he decided to share his story with the page which went viral! Here is the story.

"My name is Richard Johnson, and I'm a single father to a beautiful little girl named Persephone. Her mother left about a month after she was born. We still don't know exactly why, but we suspect postpartum depression played a part. In the first few weeks of it being just her and me, I stumbled upon your page by accident. I was so nervous and scared about being a father in general, but now I was a single father and had to fulfill two roles. I wasn't sure I could do it."

"I had read every "new parent" book I could find and clocked in over 1000 hours in YouTube videos from everything to braiding hair and painting nails to theories on how to deal with common parental issues. I then started to watch your page more closely and saw that there were other fathers out there who were in similar predicaments as me. The page started to turn into a major confidence booster and really helped me through all of this. I always look forward to photo submissions and reading the stories of some of the awesome dads out there in this community."

"You truly helped my daughter and me through a very difficult time. We're both very happy now and continue to grow together everyday. She's now 10 months, and I now get asked by my friends for parenting advice constantly. We've come a long way, my daughter and me, and we definitely owe part of that to this page and the people within it. So from both of us, we wanted to thank you.
Sincerely,
Persephone & Richard Johnson"

This great dad’s story did not finish right there as he managed to find one of the most beautiful hearted women in the world to accompany him through his path. People started noticing that picture of a lady was up on his page and started wondering who she was so Richard decided to dedicate a post to this lady on his FaceBook page.
This is how it goes.
"For all of you who have our personal Facebook this won't come as a surprise. This lovely lady is my girlfriend and Persephone wonderful and gorgeous Mother Jennifer."

"We've waited a while to have anything on this page however Jennifer has been an amazing mother to Persephone. We had met at the mall while I pathetically attempted to catch her attention by asking if she could help me pick out clothes for Persephone. I explained that I wasn't sure what actually matched and need some pointers considering my own closet had consisted of nothing but black, faded black, and dark black clothes. We had talked for months before I allowed her to meet Persephone. Upon meeting her Persephone had made the choice that this would be her mommy. Persephone wasn't a fan of women and would normally shun away from them."

"She had only known her bearded father and his friends. The first time they had met Persephone had cried to be held by Jennifer. After some time Jennifer had cheated and brought Persephone a gift. That gift was a plush toy of stitch from LILO and Stitch. Which has since then turned into her favorite movie and character (Stitch has been watched in our household more times then anything on this planet). We took it slow, I had explained the situation with Persephone and why it was a priority for me. Jennifer had wait patiently for Persephone and I to be ready. Fast forward to today, Jennifer has helped us become the family we desperately wanted to be. Persephone knows no other woman other than her as mommy."

"When she cries out for Mommy it is jennifer that she requests. She has taken on a part of Jennifer's personality. It is truly amazing to see the two of them bound so strongly.
Jennifer's family has also taken the spot of grandparents, cousins, great grand parents, etc. They have shown her so much love and acceptance I can not begin to explain. Her pop pop and Glam-ma mean more to Persephone than I could ever imagined. All and all I would love to introduce Persephone's mother and her family! Thank you for following our story and giving us your support. Life isn't about when the book ends, it's about how you decide to start the next story in your series."
