Professor's Response to Single Mom Missing Class

What Happened When 1 Mom Missed Class Because She "Couldn't Find Childcare"

When Morgan King had to miss class one day because she couldn't find a babysitter, she emailed her professor to explain her absence — and the teacher's response will make you shed a few tears of joy.

A single mom attending the University of Tennessee, Morgan tweeted a picture of the email from Sally Hunter, a clinical assistant professor in the Department of Child and Family Studies at the university. Not only did the understanding professor excuse Morgan's absence, but she also encouraged her to bring her baby, Korbyn, along to class in the future if a similar situation arises.

"In the future, if you are having trouble finding someone to watch Korbyn, please feel free to just bring her with you to class," Hunter wrote. She also mentioned how she'd be "absolutely delighted" to hold the baby while teaching the class so that Morgan could pay attention in class. How sweet! "I work for the Department of Child and Family studies, so how terrible would it be if I was unwilling to have a child visit our class? I'm very serious with this offer, just bring Korbyn with you!" she added.

When Morgan arrived a tad late to class the following day, her teacher had a similarly adorable response.

The single mom's initial tweet quickly went viral, garnering more than 26,000 favorites. Hunter's reaction to the Twitter fame will warm your heart and restore your faith in humanity.
