Steven Nelms and his wife, Glory, have been married for three years. When their son Ezra was born, they both decided that Glory should stay at home to care for him.

“With childcare costs it would’ve been a wash with her income at best. So we decided that she would stay home as long as it made sense,” – said Steven

To show his appreciation for all that his wife does, Steven wrote a profound post on the site We Are Glory which later went viral on social media. And once you read what he wrote, it’s not hard to see why:

“I’ve had this thought in my head for a while now. I’ve been thinking that I can’t afford for my wife to be a stay-at-home mom.”

“Now, I don’t at all mean to offend anyone with this post. I just have to say that for me personally, I can’t afford it. I’d like to explain exactly what I mean by that so that no one thinks I’m in any way devaluing stay-at-home moms. On the contrary, I mean that I quite literally cannot afford my wife to be staying at home.”

“My wife stays home and takes care of our son every single day. She changes his diapers, feeds him, plays with him, puts him down for his nap, and comforts him when he’s upset. And that’s just the bare minimum.”
