"I wish my son had a dad. I failed my boy. I wish I had chosen better for him."

Sindiswa also stated about her child's father:

"I never asked him for much, but just for him to call and check up on him, be there for him, teach him how to kick a ball and every little thing. He refuses even when I offer to bring him."

Online community show their support

Sindiswa's video reached over 200,000 people, some of whom felt they related to the young lady's situation of dealing with an alleged deadbeat dad.

Speaking to Sindiswa and the masses, @sibongilemalaza said:

"Guys, you didn’t fail. Everyone wants the best for their kids, but sometimes life happens. A two-parent house doesn’t mean perfect. They have their failures, too."

@kgomotsomello6 shared words of encouragement:

"Baby, being there is a big win. Kick that ball with him if you have to. You’re already two parents in one. Now, tell yourself every day that you’re a 'can,' not a 'can’t.' Thank you for being brave."
