May 19, 2016 – Single Mother Praises Son For Motivating Her To Finish College, See Her Emotional Message

A North Carolina-based single mother who recently graduated from the University is gaining popularity on the social media for writing an emotional tribute to her son moments after she graduated from college.

Jelina Latrice took to her FB account to write this beautiful message to her only son, Karter following her graduation.

“Dear Karter, For all those nights you had to fall asleep in the library, for all those times you had to watch cartoons alone because I needed to do homework, for the early mornings in daycare because I needed to be in class to being the last one there because I had to work, most importantly for the moments of separation because I needed to get this done, Thank you. You are the motivation for my heart to keep beating. I love you more than words can say. I finished because you needed to see me do it. I’m not strong because I want to be, I’m strong because I’m your first example. We’ve seen a lot and overcame a lot more. To infinity and beyond, a mother’s greatest love””

Quite touching!

    Chaiyaaaa, this is so touching. If other single moms can learn from this, it would be a lot better. Most of them sits at home doing nothing but always blaming their innocent child or the father of their child(ren) for their mistakes and downfall.
