- A single mom who graduated recently became an inspiration when she shared a photo with her son on Instagram
- Soncya Williams admitted having a hard time accepting the judgments she would receive because of having a child out of wedlock
- But now, she has fully embraced motherhood and is proud to share the milestone with her son
A single mom warmed the hearts of social media users when she shared her graduation photo with her son.
In the photo Soncya Williams posted on Instagram, her son can be seen hugging her while holding out a paper that says “She did it for me!”
Williams said her graduation made her recount the struggles she faced as a woman who had a child out of wedlock.
“My child, it is because of your presence that God blessed me with this vision. I type this with tears in my eyes because at one point, out of fear, I questioned keeping you. Once you were born, I questioned how other people would view me having a child out of wedlock,” she shared.
She also admitted hiding her son so she won’t lose potential friendships and relationships.
“As a single parent even to this day, I question if your presence is a part of what keeps me single. In the past, I have been guilty of hiding you because I thought I’d lose friendships and potential relationships because ‘Men’ DON’T want to date women with a child,” Williams added.
But now, she has come to fully embrace motherhood; saying that as mother and son, they come as a package deal.
“Any relationship or friendship I have that does not embrace me AND you is a relationship I do not need. It took mommy a while to learn that,” she said. “I would not be the woman I am today without you.”
