Jackie Forster Celebrates Best Mother’s Day Ever & Looks Back on Her Journey

There is no doubt that today is the best Mother’s Day in Jackie Forster’s life, so far. After reuniting with erstwhile estranged sons Andre and Kobe, her brood of five is now complete: J.A.C.K.Y. – Jared, Andre, Caleigh, Kobe and Yohan.

Today, Jackie Forster looks back on her tough but fulfilling journey as a mother as she shares life lessons that inspire the hundreds of mothers (and non-mothers) who follow her on social media.

My journey through motherhood hasn’t been easy. I started at 16 and feel like I’m coming full circle early at 39. From losing myself before I could even grow up, to knowing who I am and what I am really truly capable of. Today I find myself facing the most fulfilling and yet challenging times.

I suddenly have two grown men in my life but because the Lord has equipped me to face anything that comes my way.. I’m telling those who still want to put me down or stand in my way to make sure you bring it!

I want all of my children to know with every ounce of their being that for as long as I am alive I will be here to make sure they are protected and nurtured and provided for, guided and understood and Respected but most importantly that they are UNCONDITIONALLY LOVED . That means I love you regardless of what any one says or makes you do, I love you regardless of whether you do what I say or do, I love you even when you make mistakes, I love you even when you say hurtful things, I love you even if you do what we said you shouldn’t, i love you even when you aren’t honest with me, I love you even if you smell bad, i love you even if you don’t say it to me, I love you even if you forget about me, I love you even more- when you don’t love yourself!!! I love you.

You will all be mamas babies even when the day comes that that I can no longer be by your side. I will never stop loving you! Never.

Motherhood is tough, but I am tougher! I wouldn’t be who I am today if it wasn’t for all of my children and the strength and love from our Lord!

I’m grateful I get to be me and the mother I want to be with my husband who has helped nurture the lioness in me. 🦁

#HappyMothersDay to the awesome imperfect woman in my life I love you Lola Dorothy and @lucille030257 @farrahforsterpermanentmakeup and to all mothers staying strong every day and always forgiving themselves for not always getting it right!!! If God is for us, who can be against us????

And look at what what Kobe Paras wrote in the comments: “this is why I know I am set for life. we need more people like you, mama! I’m so lucky to have you. You’re the best! Happy Mother’s Day mi amor!!! I love youuuuuuuu 🖤🖤🖤🖤”
