This is the story of a young man named Richard Johnson who lives in Las Vegas.
He had a girlfriend who became pregnant, and in 2015, the couple had a baby.
She was a sweet little girl, and we named her Persephone.
The child was barely a month old when her mother left her, her daughter, and her husband.
Richard initially didn’t know how to proceed. He was shocked because the child needed care.
“I was afraid I wouldn’t be able to handle it. In the first few weeks, I panicked and started reading books on baby care.
“I watched YouTube shows and videos to learn how to raise my newborn baby,” the young father wrote on his Facebook page.
He also posted a message on the “Life of Dad” page on Facebook, aiming to help single fathers.
Here, he wrote that he had learned parenting duties so that he could properly care for his little girl.
Although Persephone is only 10 months old and has no hair, the caring father has learned to braid hair and create hairstyles.
This post received many likes and comments.
In addition to supportive words, he received many pieces of advice, especially from fathers who had daughters.
And now, the tough times in Richard’s life are over, and his little girl has grown up.
Richard began living with his new girlfriend, who had a 6-month-old son.
And they take turns babysitting while they work.
The young father wants his story to serve as an example for single fathers.
