Knaack posted the photo Wednesday and as of Thursday at 9 a.m. has received over 92,942 shares and more than 26,649 comments and 210k likes

Many have commented in support of Knaack: “Great job!” “Wow!! Good for you!!” and “You are such an example of a responsible mother! I don't know you but im so very proud of you!”

Knaack told she is a single mother raising a 4-month-old and 2-year-old on a minimum-wage job.

"It's pretty crazy," she told . "I was just sharing a milestone with my friends and family."

She says
"I got back $5600 on my taxes. Instead of buying my kids the latest Jordans or fancy electronics I paid my rent for the YEAR. I'm a single mom and I do it all buy myself on a minimum wage job. I kno that a roof over my kids head is what's important. My kids don't want for anything because my priorities are straight. And this also means I will have that extra 450 a month to do things with my kids."

Please bring her on your show Ellen - she is true inspiration to many women. Single mothers and women in recovery who often feel they're not worthy. She has fought many battles and over come addiction in the best way!!

This is a great example of how we could all change things in our lives.   Christina took a look at something she could have a positive impact on and made a HUGE difference in her life and the lives of her children.   She saw a nearly impossible situation and turned it into a florishing financincial environment.  Now, she can use a portion of the money she used to spend on rent doing things with her children and could even "snowball" the rest into a savings account to build even more financial security.  This is how people change their lives!  The world needs to see everyday people doing this so they see that they can do it too!  America needs to see that we DON'T NEED to live in a constant state of debt.   We can take control and it starts with steps like this.   Christina is amazing!
