Leah Messer has been on "Teen Mom 2" for a few years, and she has shared her struggles as a single mother at times. Leah has gotten married twice, but both marriages ended in divorce. She now has three daughters she's raising on her own as a single mother. Leah has promised herself that her children come first and she has no interest in getting together with a new man, who wants marriage. Instead, she wants to focus on herself, her education and setting an example for three daughters.

But it sounds like Leah is already getting credit for doing something wonderful. Even though much of the storyline on "Teen Mom 2" is about her co-parenting with both Corey Simms and Jeremy Calvert, Leah should be getting a lot of credit when it comes to raising a little girl with special needs.

She's currently the only girl in the entire franchise who has a special needs daughter. As many of the fans of the show point out, it takes a special person to raise a girl with special needs and takes a lot of time and energy to deal with this situation.

Should get more credit

One fan reached out to Leah on Twitter, revealing that she was a breath of fresh air to watch and that she was doing a great job when it came to raising her daughters. More specifically, it was awesome to see her raise a girl with special needs, as it sheds an honest light on the situation. Her ex-husband Corey wants their daughter to feel just as normal as her sisters, even though she struggles at times to do simple things.

Even though Ali can do more things as she grows, she also feels limited in some way. Her parents are trying to be understanding.

As Ali grows older, she may learn about her limitations and learn to create a lifestyle around these limitations. But as a child, Leah is doing everything she possibly can to make her girl feel special.

Setting an example

On this current season of "Teen Mom 2," Leah is heading back to school as she wants to set an example for her girls. She reveals that it is hard to study in a group setting, so she is opting to do the online courses instead. This also gives her more time with her daughters, which allows her to be there more for her daughter with special needs.

On this week’s episode of the show, Corey revealed that dealing with Ali is one of the hardest things he’s done. It is tough for him to understand how she can push through and she’s motivated to do everything her sisters are doing. Yet, it is tough for Corey and Leah to be realistic about her abilities, especially since she seems excited about life.

What do you think about Leah Messer getting credit for raising a girl with special needs? What kind of example do you think she’s setting for other moms?
