Jelina Latrice had just one person she needed to thank most on her graduation day: her son, Karter.

She posted a note to her son on Facebook, along with a photo of their embrace on graduation day. In the note, she thanks her son for staying by her during her studies.

Read the full post below:

Dear Karter,

For all those nights you had to fall asleep in the library, for all those times you had to watch cartoons alone because I needed to do homework, for the early mornings in daycare because I needed to be in class to being the last one there because I had to work, most importantly for the moments of separation because I needed to get this done, Thank you. You are the motivation for my heart to keep beating. I love you more than words can say. I finished because you needed to see me do it. I’m not strong because I want to be, I’m strong because I’m your first example. We’ve seen a lot and overcame a lot more.

To infinity and beyond, a mothers greatest love #iGraduated
