Jessica Singleton from Florida is a mother to an adorable little boy named Pierson.
And while she is no longer together with his father, Jon Meganson, the two parents are a great team when it comes to raising their child.
To show her gratitude for Jon’s overwhelming support, Jessica wrote a heartfelt Facebook post which quickly went viral. And for good reasons!
“This is my ex. This right here is more valuable than gold. This is a man who doesn’t pay a dime through the state because when my son needs new clothes, I just call him. This is a man who buys a bundle of kids’ movies on Vudu so even I can enjoy them with my son in my own home. A man who drops off the $45 box of pull-ups at my front door so I don’t have to load him up and go to the store. One who takes his son in 10 min notice far often than he should because I have too much to get done or just need a nap. This is a man who listens to me cry because I’m stressed out. This is a man who tells his son not to forget mommy’s boyfriend when he lists his favorite people off the top of his head…A man who rushes over because we got locked out of the house or spends his evening fixing something for us. This is a man who labeled the presents he bought his son from “mommy” because mommy couldn’t get him as many. A man who still watches my sister’s kids so our son can be with his cousins. One who accompanies me to meet strangers from Craigslist to ensure we are safe. This is the diaper-bag-wearing, chocolate-milk-making, selfless, protective, generous, accomplished FATHER to my son..”, wrote Jessica.

And why are you seeking someone different, when you have the one you need right in front of you? Wake up, no one will be better then this. Get back together and enjoy what you and more

I like that she gives Dad a lot of praise. It sounds like she wanted the divorce and he did not. Most men are not that generous unless they are still very much in love.
