We’ve all heard the horror stories, as a matter of fact, one of the most popular fairytales involved a terrifying stepmother.
There’s nothing good said about most stepmothers but with the way relationships and marriages are changing, blended families are the new normal. People meet already having children and that doesn’t stop them from falling in love. The real task, however, comes in when it comes to parenting your spouse’s child. Crossing boundaries is always a sore subject but some women are acing the whole stepmother role very well.
Former Destiny’s Child member Letoya Luckett recently got married and her fairytale wedding inspired us, but behind the scenes, this woman is a dotting stepmum to her husband’s daughter Madison.
The little girl recently turned 6 and Letoya dedicated the sweetest most heartfelt message for her. We can tell that she has a special relationship with her stepdaughter and it’s so amazing to see. Here’s what she had to say:
This little face brings me so much joy. Madison, You’ve made me a better woman & I’m grateful to God for that. I want to be my best for you. As God holds my hand through this new adventure, I’ll hold your little hand tighter in mine. Funny thing is my closest family and friends know that I’ve always dreamed of having a little girl & naming her Madison!! I have the vision board to prove it, & when your dad revealed your name in one of our 1st conversations it almost brought me to tears because I knew God heard me 🙌🏾…and that he has a sense of humour. This has taught me to trust him even more. Welp baby girl – This is US! I’m so overjoyed to celebrate the
” big girl 6 “and many moooore years with you. I’m blessed I get to spend the rest of my life watching you grow into a beautiful woman.
I know God has great things for you & I will be there to Love you through it all! I will consistently remind you to keep God 1st, that there is power in prayer, that you can do ANYTHING you put your mind to, that you are beautiful inside & out, that black gurl magic is real & that you’re blessed beyond measure. You are a BRIGHT light. Your mom & dad have done such an amazing job with you & I want to do nothing but add to that. I will do my best to lead by example, & though I might mess up at times, please give me grace. I love you Madison & I celebrate you not just on your Burfday, but EVERYDAY!!! HAPPY Burfday my little sweetheart!!! See you soon! Love, “ Ma Toy”
This is the kind of stepmother every child needs, a woman of God, that’s the only way it will work out.
