This mom who is so grateful her ex found a partner who loves her daughter so much, she bought them matching scrubs: facebook.com "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? ... 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. I want nothing more than for her to be surrounded with role models who are exactly that." 2. This mom who made her daughter this necklace: buzzfeed.com Beardsley gave her daughter this simple crossbar necklace made with the original diamonds from her wedding ring. It was symbolic, because "[my mom] said although her marriage to my dad didn’t work out, they both agreed I was the best thing to come from it," Petit said. 3. This family who made matching shirts to show their daughter their support: facebook.com "Because of us, I will never believe co-parenting can't work! I KNOW through experience it CAN WORK! Choose to do what's best for your child and everything will just fall into place." 4. This sweet dad who bought groceries for his child's mother even though the two are not together: facebook.com "My child's mother said our daughter isn't feeling well and needs some Tylenol, so I bring her infant Tylenol and notice her fridge is completely empty other then some water. But she has a full pantry of my daughter's food, formula, snacks, and water. Mind you she works a full-time job and then has my daughter. She pays rent and all her bills, plus she is paying off a car. So, today I went shopping to make sure she had food for the next few weeks..." 5. This divorced couple who continues to take photos with their kid every year: facebook.com "The top two photos were taken when Adam and I were married. The bottom two, taken nearly one year and over two years after our divorce was finalized. We are not in love, we don't always agree, we're not best friends, sometimes we don't even like one another. But you know what we are? We are forever connected because of our beautiful, smart, kind, compassionate, funny son. We RESPECT one another. We remember that neither of our roles as parents take precedence over the other — neither one of us are any more important to the life of our son..." 6. This mom who wrote this heartfelt tribute to her ex, the father of her son: facebook.com "This is my ex. This is a man who doesn't pay a dime through the state because when my son needs new clothes, I just call him. This is a man who buys a bundle of kids' movies on Vudu so even I can enjoy them with my son in my own home. A man who drops off the $45 box of pull-ups at my front door so I don't have to load him up and go to the store. One who takes his son in 10 min notice far more often than he should because I have too much to get done or just need a nap... This is the diaper-bag-wearing, chocolate-milk-making, selfless, protective, generous, accomplished FATHER to my son... The amount of obstacles we've had to overcome to get to this point are tremendous. This was not easy, this was a choice..." 7. This mom and stepmom who always put their daughter first: Twitter: @tv3elaine In an interview with US Weekly, both moms had a lot to say about one another. “I love her too. She’s become one of my best friends and I rely on her for many things. She is one of the strongest people I know and I am thankful for her every day,” Booth gushed. “Don’t tell me that peaceful co-parenting isn’t possible, because it is. I know it is. Because I do it every day.” 8. These parents' divorce selfie that shows divorce doesn't have to be a sad thing: fox6now.com "Here's Chris Neuman and I yesterday after filing for divorce! But we're smiling?! Are we smiling because the partner we chose for forever turned out not to be the forever partner we needed? Of course not. We're smiling because we have done something extraordinary (we think anyway)! We have respectfully, thoughtfully, and honorably ended our marriage in a way that will allow us to go forward as parenting partners for our children, the perfect reason that this always WAS meant to be, so they will never have to choose. They'll never have to wonder which side of the auditorium to run to after their Christmas concert or spring play, because we'll be sitting together. They won't have to struggle with their own wedding planning because we'll be sitting on the same side of the aisle — THEIR side." 9. This mom who is grateful for her ex (the father of her child): facebook.com "Growing up without your parents together is hard, but if those parents can work every day together and separately to make their child's future a good one, then you've done your best. We may not have the picture perfect life, but everything we do is for her. Sometimes it's easy to forget that and you can get wrapped up in trying to be "right" all the time. Co-parenting is hard. But then you have realizations. Yesterday, my daughter told me I NEED to buy more nail polish like daddy has at his house. So, out of curiosity — and to check out my nail polish competition — I asked him what he uses. He replied back with a picture that melted my heart: 14 polishes. Lined up for her to pick which one she wants. Even apart we can still make sure she feels loved, happy, and complete."
