In April 2020, a desperate mother decided to take her child along for a trip to the grocery store. The choice was made out of necessity and the mother would much rather have left her five-year-old safely at home.

Due to the covid-19 pandemic, people have been advised to avoid going into public spaces as much as possible. However for single mom, MaryAnn Fausey Resendez this was not an option.

FORCED TO BRING HER CHILD

Anticipating an array of different reactions, the Texas resident wrote a message and attached it to her daughter's back. The words told people why she was forced to bring a child into the supermarket.

The mother also posted the note on her Facebook page and captioned it: "The sign I made her wear cuz I just know some [expletive] will take a picture & talk [expletive] on social media not knowing all the facts."

THE POST WENT VIRAL

To avoid being shamed, the mother used a note written from the perspective of her little girl. It read: "I am only five. I can't stay home alone, so I have to buy groceries with mommy. Before you start judging, stay back six feet."

There were still commenters that questioned the single mother's actions and suggested alternative ideas.

The mother encouraged others to share her post, and it certainly gained a lot of traction online. The note got people talking, with close to seven thousand likes, thousands of comments, and over 40 thousand shares.
