A family has recently proved that the end of a relationship does not have to break up a family!

Emilee Player posted a photo on Facebook which was taken at her 4-year-old stepdaughter Maelyn’s soccer game. All of the adults in the picture were there to cheer Maelyn on. They were wearing matching shirts: her mom, dad, stepmom and stepdad.

The internet is loving it – The photo has received over 34,ooo reactions and has been shared over 85,000 times on social media.

All 4 adults, Emilee (Maelyn’s stepmother), Ricky Player (Maelyn’s dad), Clara Cazeau (Maelyn’s mom) and Alex Cazeau (Maelyn’s stepdad) do their best to make it to Maelyn’s games together whenever they can.

It was Clara’s idea to have shirts made after the third game of the season, so they could all show their support for Maelyn.

“Alex, the stepdad, is in the Army and stationed in Fort Bragg, but every time he is home all four of us attend,” Emilee Player said. “On a regular day it is the three of us, and we make it a point to sit together and cheer her on as a family.”

The two families regularly come together. “We do all birthdays together for Maelyn,” said Clara Cazeau. “We also go to each other’s birthday dinners with their own families, we do holidays together, we go to one another’s houses, we are literally always doing things together.”

Player said that it helps to remember that your kids are always watching. “Always respect the people involved because how you treat the other parents is a reflection of who you are,” she said.
