May they be men or women, it is very difficult to raise a child, and their siblings, on your own if you are single. You will have to double your efforts at work to earn enough money to support yourself and the children. Additionally, your job consumes your quality time with them. Eventually, relationships with the children become more distant at some time.
A single father never neglected his responsibility to his daughter when his wife passed. He found time to spend quality time with her even when he was busy at work. During a Mother’s Day event at his daughter’s school, he wore a dress to participate in the fun activities with her. Although the sight was hilarious, the mothers at the school event were proud of the single father and his infinite love for his daughter.
Daniel Correa is a single father from Brazil and was married to Stella Correa. However, in 2016, Stella suffered from Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE) until she passed away.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Systemic Lupus Erythematosus or SLE is an autoimmune disease in which the immune system attacks its own tissues, causing widespread inflammation and tissue damage in the affected organs. It can affect the joints, skin, brain, lungs, kidneys, and blood vessels.
Deeply saddened, but not overwhelmed, by his wife’s departure, Daniel made a promise to her through an article he wrote online that read, “I promise you to be the best father in the world, thank you for giving me the best 8 years of my life, and I will always love you.” Since then, he did his best to raise their 5-year-old daughter Luna on his own, creating wonderful memories with her and doing everything to make her happy and fill each moment with laughter.
Recently, Luna informed her father that their school was holding a Mother’s Day event, and all the mothers of her schoolmates would be attending. Hoping to attend the event, Luna had an idea and told her father to dress up like a mom. Hesitant, Daniel suggested bringing her grandma or aunt to the event. However, Luna insisted and persuaded her father to wear a dress so they could attend the Mother’s Day event at her school.
Finally, on the day of the event, he decided to give in to Luna’s request since he loves her deeply. He wore a blond wig and a one-piece dress which surprised Luna. At the event, Luna gave him a “One Day Mom” hug, and everyone present at the school event was deeply moved by the gesture.
Later, Daniel shared the story and some photos on his social media, saying, “Death is inevitable, but we don’t need to be immersed in sadness all the time, do you agree? Luna, I love you! When you see me dressed as a mother, your smile is more important than anything!” Although Luna is growing up without her mother, Daniel is doing his best to be her father and mother at the same time. He would do anything for his daughter not to feel lonely and will be cared for like a princess.
Wishing all the best for Luna and her father Daniel. May they always be happy and their hearts filled with joy.
The story of Daniel and Luna is very comforting. If the story inspired you, share it with your family and friends, and also on your social media page.
