Being a mom is one of the best parts of my life. It’s also the most stressful. Lol my son is my pride and joy. For those who have been reading my blog you know that I had my son at the age of 17. While my life wasn’t horrible it was definitely difficult being a teen mom. Bringing up a brown boy in a not so perfect neighborhood at a not so perfect age and no type of game plan was hard. All I knew is that I didn’t want him to become a statistic and to give him all the love and support I had to offer.
There were trials and tribulations, we had many ups and downs. I cried many tears and sacrificed what was needed for him to be successful at whatever it was he did.
I remember when I first realized my son had an issue with his complexion. He came home and asked me why he was so dark. My heart broke into a thousand pieces but with all the strength and confidence I had I said because that’s how god made you and you’re beautiful!
I knew my words weren’t enough but I continued to reassure him that he was perfect. As years passed he hated taking pics, hated being out in the son and probably hated his complexion. We would talk about the beauty in his complexion. I wasn’t sure if it helped but I did it as often as possible.
Fast forward to recently, he told me he wanted to get into modeling. I was so happy because I am bias and think he will be great at it. Also it shows me that his confidence in him and his complexion has gone up.
Please if you can, take the time to follow his IG page Here and watch him grow.
