Single parents do not always get credit for the hard work they’re doing for their kids despite the reality that they’re superheroes for being able to provide and care for their family all by themselves.
Sommer Jean was a single mom of an 11-year-old kid named Mekhi.
Their Sad Past
Sommer was in college when she had Mekhi and was in an abusive relationship during most of her child’s early years.
A Hard Life
Most days, it was only Mekhi who ate anything because his mom couldn’t afford food for both of them. Sommer said, “It was either he ate, or I ate – and he ate every time.”
Supporting Each Other
Sommer and Mekhi have faced a lot of challenges together and they both made it through all of them stronger than before.
Eventually, Sommer met a man named Jeff, and as she was very protective of Mekhi because of her previous relationship, it took her a while before she introduced Jeff to him.
They Got Along
At first, Mekhi was hesitant to get attached to Jeff but eventually, upon seeing how gentle and loving he is toward his mom, the young boy started “coming out of his shell” and letting Jeff into his life as well.
A New Chapter
After some time, Sommer and Jeff decided to get married, and Mekhi’s reaction to seeing his mom in a wedding dress is priceless.
An Emotional Moment
Mekhi and Sommer shed happy tears on her wedding day. The young boy was immensely happy for her mom and they were both excited to enter a brand new season in their lives.
