Momma Can You Hear Me
There are countless stories of heroic parents who race in front of 18-wheelers to save their tots from the massive truck barreling their way or are willing to jump in the path of a bullet to prevent harm to come to their baby.

Myiaa Smith, 29, Watts mom, had already jumped to safety from her second floor bedroom window. Da-Onah was found dead under a bed.

Night and Day; Daylen turns 1
It was one year ago today that Daylen Evan F. came into our family and brightened our lives with the most arresting smile and heated “tude.” My flawless nephew was God’s gift to celebrate my return to NYC and he was everything I could’ve wanted. He’s smart, beautiful and reminds me of what’s really important in life. Anytime I’m feeling down, upset, confused or stressed I just need to spend five minutes with Daylen to realize that nothing – yes folks, nothing – is really that serious. His innocence renews my spirit and his curiosity makes my heart warm. Happy birthday Day-Day!
