Sharing on the Humans of New York Facebook page one busy mum admitted “to believe motherhood is the most important job in the world, you’d have to believe your child is the most important person in the world.”
She told HONY “He’s starting to be less dependent, but so far it’s been pretty relentless and repetitive. A lot of changing diapers and feeding. The same mundane task over and over again. It can be exhausting and depersonalizing.”
“I’m an emergency room doctor, and that’s where I think I’m most useful to the world. It’s great to be back. If some people love parenting, that’s very lucky. There are certainly moments when it’s wonderful. But to believe motherhood is the most important job in the world, you’d have to believe your child is the most important person in the world.”
The post certainly sparked some heated responses with nearly 10,000 comments and 146K reactions.
“This lady doesn’t deserve her beautiful child,” wrote one person.
Another said, “I wish everyone would and could feel the unconditional love I have for my kids.”
While several others commented that they felt sorry for the toddler in the photograph and volunteered to adopt him.
