It can be hard being a single parent at the best of times, especially when trying to tackle the problems that can occur when one parent has taken on the role of mum AND dad.

This one amazing single mother, Yevette Vasquez, who hails from Texas decided to tackle these challenges head on when she accidentally stumbled upon a breakfast her son's school was hosting called 'Donuts With Dads'. Sadly her son Elijah's father is no longer present in his life and what Yvette chose to do next will melt your heart.

She decided that she didn't want her son feeling excluded, so she went home and later came back to the school dressed up to attend the breakfast. Complete with a fake moustache, plaid shirt, a baseball cap and aftershave... she attended as her son's dad!

Yvette's heartwarming explanation as to why she went to so much effort, were explained in a Facebook post which she uploaded photos from the day.

"I know seeing other dads with their kids isn't easy for mine but it's life...I want to do whatever it takes to put a smile on that face."

Since uploading her post to Facebook, it has become a viral sensation with over 17,000 shares and growing. 

We are literally so moved by this story and it just proves a mother's love has no limits.
