Being a single mom can be tough as it is raising a child alone. But going to school to try and provide a better life for your family on top of it all can be an even bigger challenge!

Jelina Latrice recently posted a “Thank You” letter to her son after struggling to graduate from college. The post has since gone viral being shared thousands of times and reaching millions of people across the globe.

She wrote:

“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”
