✨I was 16 when I had my first daughter. I’m closer in age to her, than I am my sister.
It’s been just me and her ever since.
I was blessed 17 months later, with my second daughter; it was the 3 of us, with her still to this day leaving me every other weekend.
I was almost done with beauty school, when I found out after my 21st birthday that I was again going to be a mother to my third.
I’ve stuck around in this life to be able to show these young women that with each other, we can get through anything together.

Parenting is not easy, I was fortunate to have a strong support system at my tender age, but, for all the young moms out there doing it by themselves, I salute you.
We are a special breed, and while society tells you’ve lost it all, I’m here to remind you that you’ve only gained so much more.
Love your babies, and your dreams will come true; just in different ways, and timelines, then you could ever imagine.
