A Missouri mother's thank you letter to her ex's new girlfriend has gone viral and is sending an important message to other divorced parents about what's most important.
Brittney Johnson could have gotten angry like most mothers at the thought of her daughter, Payton, spending time with a new woman, but she didn't. Instead, she was extremely grateful and wanted to let 22-year-old nursing student Kayla Imhoff know how happy she is that Payton has a "bonus" mom.
Brittney wrote, "Thank you, Kayla, for showing Payton how to chase her dreams, how to work hard and stay up late to study for a test. Thank you for making time to ride her bike with her and make her mac and cheese even in one of the most stressful times of your life."
As for those who think it's strange for a mother to write such a letter, Brittney has a message for them. She says, "To all of the other mothers out there who throw a fit when another woman treats your child as her own: why isn’t that exactly what you want? I prayed one night for the type of woman my daughter’s father would be with, knowing that she would be raised in two homes." (Us Weekly)
