A young mum has been the recipient of world-wide praise after a message she penned about her daughter’s stepmother was shared thousands of times internationally.
Mum Audrey Nicole, from Virginia USA, shared a message on Facebook in which she thanked her former husband’s partner Whitney McGraw for being a strong support for her daughter Riley.
The mum shared an image of Riley pictured with her step mum and encouraged mothers to give the women in their children’s lives a chance.
“This is my daughter’s father’s girlfriend. The sweetest thing ever! I'm super thankful for her because when she visits her dad she feeds her, takes care of her, buys her gifts, and basically takes care of her like her own,” wrote Audrey.
“Why do all these moms act so spiteful and jealous towards the other women? No one said it was easy trying to be a mother to a kid you didn't have. So when there is someone trying don't push them away,” she said.
In the post, Audrey admitted that she was happy that her daughter had another supportive parental figure in her life and said she was extremely thankful for Whitney.
“A kid can have two moms because in my eyes the more people that love her, I'm happy! I would never make her feel like an outsider. I'm extremely thankful for this girl,” she said.
The message has been shared hundreds of thousands of times since it was posted on Facebook page 'Love What Matters'.
