Along with telling her adorable baby girl what she means to her, she also made sure to keep it real about the world that she’ll grow up in, but not without some reassuring mommy wisdom to help her along the way. “As you grow older, you will understand that life is a long road that you cannot travel without having people pointing fingers at you. We live in a world where people have the right to their opinions, however you have the right to refuse them as your truth. People only have as much power as you give them. Remember that.”
Teyana closed the letter with some encouraging words to her “June Bug”. “Remember that you can do and achieve anything. As long as you can see it’s real, anything is possible.”
