Brooke Valentine, a Loving and dedicated mother
Brooke Valentine is a loving and dedicated mother. While she was on the top of her career, she chose to take a break from her career since her son needed her. Her son, London, was diagnosed with cerebral palsy since she had a complication during her delivery.
She said in an interview with Essence
"They gave him an MRI and within 30 minutes he had over five seizures. He was only a day old at this point. I drove two hours to get to him. That eventually led to his diagnosis of cerebral palsy and hemiplegia. I’m thankful to God that the seizure disorder is not an issue as of now."
She also shared with other parents she is not embarra s sed by her son's condition or afraid to take her child out in public or to introduce him to her friends and family. She said:
"I just want to be that voice that says it’s okay and we can make it through this. Our kids aren’t aliens. It just means you have to pay a little more attention to certain things, but they’re gonna be okay. We have to stand up and show other parents that it’s okay. It’s not going to go away anytime soon, so we have to take it head on."
Valentine also revealed that she used to cry looking at London's medical records but his smile gave her strength to fight for him. She has dedicated a video for her single Forever to London to her son.
