Richard Johnson felt lonely and scared when his partner left him and their one-month-old daughter, Persephone. The 21-year-old believes the baby’s mom left due to postpartum depression. Johnson admits he cried many nights while he held his sleeping baby. He did not feel confident he was up to the task. This is when he came across a Facebook page called Life of Dad.
