One woman found herself with a handful of children at a very young age. Many thought she might end up sad, lonely, and devoid of love. Were they right?

Beth Hyde was only a teenager, but at 15 years old, she had already found her calling. After visiting an orphanage in Ecuador, she was set on working in orphanages.

However, when she was an adult, her dream, although similar, took a new route. From Indiana, US, Hyde decided she wanted to foster a child.

THE NOISE OF THE NAYSAYERS

But, at only 23 years old and as a single woman, many people chose to judge her. She said that people could not make sense of her choice. Hyde said:

"Everyone thought that I was crazy for wanting to become a foster mum at such a young age."

Even people in the foster care system were unsure if they should approve her because of how old she was. But, at 24 years old, Hyde began to foster Ava and Sadie.

THE BIGGER, THE BETTER

From there, it was a whirlwind when only months after she began fostering her first two kids, along came another -- a cute one-month-old baby named Nora. By January of 2017, Hyde chose to adopt all three children.

She admitted that she began to lose faith.

But Hyde wasn't done. In 2018, she fostered a premature baby Mia. Lucy, Nora's biological sister, joined the family only months after Hyde took Mia in. She adopted both of them.

SOCIETY'S STANDARDS

This mother, soon approaching her thirties, felt an even stronger pressure from those around her to find a partner. Many of them said she never would. Hyde remembered:

"So I was a single mum of five, and people were constantly telling me I would never find a husband because of the kids."

She admitted that she began to lose faith in finding someone to call her own. But, love was around the corner and waiting to surprise her when she least expected it.

DEFEATING STEREOTYPES

In 2020, during the COVID-19 pandemic, another single parent, Marc, discussed foster care with her over a podcast. A romance then began to bloom. She reminisced:

"Within a month of knowing him, I knew he was going to be the man I would marry."

The lovebirds got married in 2021, with a huge family to go. Now, just finding herself in her dirty thirties, she is as happy as can be.

Hyde is one more powerhouse who proved that age and being a single mom do not define a woman's value.

Beyond age and motherhood, should her worth be defined by having a man in her life? Does that signal that she is now fulfilled? What do you think?
