A young mom named Jessica Singleton from Chipley, Florida took to Facebook to think her ex for the most amazing reason. Singleton shared a collage of adorable photos of her ex Jon Megason and their son Pierson. The pictures were accompanied by a long post expressing her gratitude towards Megason for being such an incredible co-parent to their young son.
The two were not able to make their romantic relationship work, however, they were still able to come together as a team for their son. Singleton thanks Megason for everything he does not only for Pierson, but for her as well. "The amount of obstacles we've had to overcome to get to this point are tremendous. This was not easy, this was a choice." She wrote, urging other separated parents to "Stop giving excuses and come together for your children."
I applaud these 2 so much. My ex and I have 5 wonderful kids, 2, who are my step kids, that I've raised from the time they were 1 & 1/2 and 8 months old. They are about to be 22 and 20 now. And then she and I had 3 more kids who are now 16, 14 and 9. We also have a 4-month-old beautiful granddaughter. My ex and I never have issues, never have drama, never argue. We accommodate one another's schedules, when need be, when it comes to the kids. We consciously choose for it to be this way. It's the way I love it and the way I want it and it comes with a purpose.
Our kids hear, all the time, from their peers about how their peer's parents are always fighting and arguing, treating one another awful...ext...etc. For me, I want my kids growing up knowing that even though their Mom and Dad aren't together anymore, they still treat one another with respect. I want them to "know" that there is another way...another path you can choose to take, as divorced parents with kids. I want them to grow up having the tools to choose to have productive, healthy, respectable relationships, as adults, with those they choose to let in their lives. So good job you 2! - Patrick
