She shared this post about the interview on her Facebook, ‘ Lemayan and I are excited to be on the cover of the January 2016 Parents Magazine, feeling very blessed it’s my first cover story and I got to shoot it with the love of my life my son. I first started reading Parents Magazine when I was pregnant, I was 22yrs old single, jobless and clueless to what the future held. The stories I read in Parents Magazine were so inspiring and filled me with hope for a better future at the lowest time of my life. It’s such a humbling and exciting experience to now be on the cover sharing my life, my struggles, my achievements, my motivation and my faith in God with you all. I pray that the same hope I found in the stories I read while I was pregnant will have the same positive impact on someone who needs its most. Wishing you all a Beautiful & Successful 2016 filled with Love & Laughter.’

I had no idea the impact of sharing my journey would have, it was a prayer that it would be helpful to someone who needed a reason to hold on to faith and now I know that many times we may feel alone in times of trials but if we speak out we will find many of us share the same struggles, hopes and dreams when it comes to giving our children a bright and wonderful future. May God bless each of you, lots and lots of love from my son & I.’
