Single moms everywhere devote their lives to their children.

With working and also being there for their children, life can get hard. Being the sole provider takes a lot of responsibility, time, and money — that’s a lot to place on one person’s shoulders.

Everyone knows you can’t be in two places at once, but some moms act as if they can and still seem to get everything they need done and more.

So, can you imagine if you had five children and were raising all of them on your own? They outnumber you by a lot.

Now imagine those five children are the reason you’ve worked so hard your whole life, and then suddenly, you lose everything you gave them, everything you worked for.

That’s exactly what happened to single mom of five Courtney Shirley.

Her sons and daughters depend on her for their clothes, their food, and everything about their lifestyle. They have no father to turn to, but their mother still provides everything they need as a solo parent.

Until one day, when their fate was out of her hands. Their dryer caught fire, sending their house up in flames. And instead of worrying about their belongings, all they had a chance to think about was their own safety.

Every one of them ran out of the dangerous fire and got to safety. But everything they owned was destroyed.

They don’t even have clothes. So their best friend is setting out to share their story and hopefully get them back on their feet as fast as possible.

Please SHARE this heartbreaking story with all of your loved ones so this single mom and her family can get their life started again!
