His duty as a father included ensuring that the mom of his child was happy and nourished. That's exactly what he set out to do.
Brandon James, a young father, has taken the internet by storm with a post about his recent visit to his ex's house. He and his ex may have parted ways but he has proven to everyone that the separation has had no impact on his love for his daughter or his respect for her mother. The Daily Mail shares his story with you.
It started when his ex requested if he could pick up some medicine for their daughter and drop it off at her place. Being the caring father, he did as requested but when he entered her apartment, he discovered something that saddened him. James found his ex's refrigerator was practically empty with the only items occupying space being some bottles of water. Deciding to take action, he did something that went above and beyond what she had asked him to do. But despite that, the young father also found a pantry that was stocked with food but for their baby daughter.
In his Facebook post he explained that "My child's mother said our daughter isn't feeling well...so I bring her infant Tylenol and notice her fridge is completely empty other than some water... but she has a full pantry of my daughter's food formula snacks and water..."
Kicking his car into gear, he headed straight to the local Winn-Dixie supermarket and bought a week's worth of groceries for his ex and their baby daughter before posting a picture of a long bill outlining everything that he had bought for her.
Continuing, he says "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..just because we aren't together doesn't mean I can't provide for her if she needs it. If my child's mother is good then I know she is taking care of our daughter the best she can and that [makes] me happy. Some of y'all think I'm only going to provide for my child f*** the mother but that's thinking like a child..it's time to grow up and take responsibility in all aspects of life...!"
With an act of love and respect like this, it's no wonder that his post has gone viral. This form of co-parenting might help others who are separated with children, navigate their own relationship and arrive at a level playing field.
