Being single parent is hard, especially when your child is sick. However, one mom thanked God for her daughter, who she raised to become a strong woman.
Nokuthula Sedibe took to the #ImStaying page to gush about her daughter, Refilwe, who is a medical student. Sedibe revealed her daughter was born in 2000 and she suffered from asthma. Growing up, Refilwe was also "sick and skinny."
However, despite the challenges she faced, Refilwe is working towards her dream.
"This is my beautiful daughter Refilwe Sedibe, born in 2000. She was born asthmatic and was always sick and skinny. With God by my side I raised her being a single (mom), I made sure she goes to school despite her health. Today she's a medical student, studying paediatrics to help other kids. I thank God for her daily and that's why I'm staying."
