Yandy Smith-Harris is en route to becoming a foster parent. The celebrity mom recently gave Instagram fans an inside look at her journey to becoming a guardian of a teen that she has been mentoring for the past few years.
“Keep your head up,” Yandy told her soon-to-be foster child. “We got you from now til forever.” The celebrity mom went on to tell her Instagram fans that making the decision to become a foster parent was the “biggest decision I ever made.”
I never know how God wants to use me. Everyday I’m learning how to be a better me and this new chapter is going to take a lot of learning. I know there’s a process in everything…this has been an emotional one. I met @tooiinfinityandbeyond when she was in 7th grade speaking at her school, never thought 3 years later I would be in the process of becoming a foster mommy to her. Not totally cleared yet but I’m approved to start the process. The judge, ACS, the attorneys were all great. I’m sharing this with you all because she wanted me to. She wanted mentors out there to know the impact they could have in changing the trajectory of a child’s life. Cuz I promise her life will never be the same again!!!! @fromyandytoinfinity is my new journey please pray for me and if you have any advice I’m open to it all❤️
Yandy Smith-Harris has reportedly requested to be the sole caregiver of her mentee. The star mom discussed her fearlessness when communicating via social media during an interview with Madame Noire earlier this year.
“There are many struggles but do I want the world criticizing and judging and having an opinion about everything I have going on,” Yandy asked. “Y’all criticize enough,” the celebrity mom added. “If I give you something, I’m going to give you what I want to give you. I give you truth I give you when I’m missing him. I give you when I’m struggling with certain thing. But there are certain things that I feel like are for me.”
Hopefully, Yandy Smith-Harris will continue to share her foster parent process with her social media fans. Stay tuned for more celebrity mom news!
