Tennessee Professor’s Response To Single Mom’s Absence Has Internet Applauding.

Raising kids is never easy. But rearing a new baby as a working student and single mom? Near impossible.

That’s exactly the situation that Therapeutic Recreation major, Morgan King, found herself in when she was unable to find childcare for her 3-month-old daughter Korbyn, forcing her to skip one of her classes.


The single mom reached out to her professor asking for leniency… but what she received in return was the last thing she expected.

Morgan broke down in tears after seeing her professor’s message, and she decided to share it on Twitter.

People from all over the world applauded Dr. H’s kind, helpful heart and couldn’t get over the feels her email incurred.

Morgan walked into class the next day, Korbyn fully situated in childcare, to find her teacher actually disappointed that the little tyke was not with her.

Genuine, kind-hearted people like Dr. H are exactly what this world needs!
