It can be tricky when your ex gets a new partner, especially when there's a child involved. Brittney Johnson doesn't find it awkward, however. In fact, she's incredibly grateful Kayla Imhoff, her ex's new girlfriend, has become a part of her daughter's life. She wrote a message on Facebook which describes their relationship and it quickly went viral!
Readers are inspired by her beautiful message:
To all of the 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.
Some mothers would be angry that their daughter is now spending a lot of time with another woman, but Johnson knows Imhoff is a positive role-model:
Kayla has been a gift of so much more than I could have hoped for. She started nursing school and Payton has been infatuated ever since. So Kayla ordered a pair of mini scrubs for her to match.
It sounds like both Johnson and Imhoff are pretty good at their job:
Let me tell you, I'm raising a strong girl, a smart girl and a sweet girl. And I want nothing more than for her to be surrounded with role models who are exactly that. 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 still making time to ride her bike with her and make her mac and cheese even in one of the stressful times of your life. You're a true role model and an amazing bonus mom and we are so proud of you!
