In January 2015, Richard Johnson, age 21, welcomed his lovely little girl Persephone into this world. Unfortunately, within a month, her mom chose to flee with her to California. The mother then chose to alter her opinion and undermined Richard that, in the event that he didn't come and get her quickly, she would put their little girl up for appropriation.
Following a month of this traumatic occasion, which Richard expressed was on the grounds that the mother had post birth anxiety – Richard was tossed into the profound end as a single parent.
Richard was truly ill-equipped to be a single parent. He was separated from everyone else, discouraged and panicked, until he unearthed a Facebook page called "Life of Dad". This indicated Richard that there were other individuals out there like him, and he wasn't the one and only experiencing this. It demonstrated that he could make it as a single parent and flourish. Since finding this gathering, Richard has turned round his life and guaranteed his girl has the best life she can get. He as of late shared his story on Facebook and it's becoming famous online, rousing a huge number of individuals around the globe.
Here goes the Facebook post: "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 1,000 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. We're both very happy now and continue to grow together every day. 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"
