T-Boz became a mom for the second time when she welcomed her son, Chance, into her home last year. The celebrity mom went the way of adoption, which was anything but easy. T-Boz shares her story with her readers in her book, A Sick Life.
“We all just bust out crying,” T-Boz writes of her reaction when all legal proceedings concerning little Chance were finalized. The celebrity mom had her heart set on adoption years prior but was faced with the devastation of plans falling through due to the child’s birth mother having second thoughts and deciding to keep her little one.
“I had brought everything and got his room together,” T-Boz tells her readers. “[The birth mother] stood my mom up at the lawyer’s office when it was time to sign papers. I was hurt.”
From pain comes joy as the mother of the first child T-Boz planned to adopt became pregnant again and promised T-Boz that the second child was, for sure, hers. Enter: Chance.
“I’m not even a happy crier, ever, but I was bawling,” T-Boz says of the overwhelming emotion she felt upon becoming her son’s legal guardian. “I was so relieved because you love this person with all your heart — and to know that someone can still take him from you? I couldn’t imagine. I was so relieved once that part was over.”
So how’s life for T-Boz as the mom of a 16-year-old daughter and toddler son? Perfect! “Chance has brought new life and fulfillment in our house and made us feel even more complete, and I can’t thank his birth mother enough for that,” the star mom writes in her book. “He’s been a blessing,” T-Boz adds. “He’s so happy, you can’t help but smile.”
