The fresh college graduate, Jelina Latrice, deemed it fit to thank her son, Karter, for all the days she had been forced away from him in the pursuit of her studies.
Latrice highlights the sleepless nights, the day cares, and endless library visits in her touching, going on to dedicate her achievement to her son.
The young mum shared a photo of herself fully dressed in her graduation gown and hat, hugging her son with tears streaming down her face, as she writes:
"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."
With the number of heartless acts being handed down to kids by their parents in recent times, touching gestures such as this will always be noted and remembered.
