Basketball Wives LA (BBWLA) star, Jackie Christie’s estranged daughter, Takari Lee Christie posted the following open letter to her mom after a horrible accident left her eight-month-old son Braxton severely burned and her with substantial medical costs which prompted her to start a “Go Fund Me” page.

Takari felt abandoned by her well-to-do family consisting of reality TV star, Jackie Christie and step-father, former NBA player, Doug Christie.

Some of the family’s problems played out in an earlier season of BBWLA where Takari’s feelings were revealed by her younger sister and biological daughter of Doug and Jackie, Chantel Christie.

I must admit, this story has been difficult to follow as I can relate to Takari’s story in some ways.

She seems to have figured out, you can’t make someone love you the way you need to be loved so acceptance is key. Hopefully, this experience will give her the strength of character to handle future obstacles that may come her way.

God gives us “free will” to make choices that will feed and protect our souls.

I always say, the gift is in knowing.  She should now have a clear understanding of who her true benefactor is whether her financial needs were met by close family or distant friends/strangers, it was her choice to reach out for help that got the deed done.

Unfortunately, our blood relatives can sometimes hurt us the most and to that I say; take away their power.

Jackie Christie posted the above photo to her Instagram page today and was flooded with various compliments regarding her appearance/apparel….made me wonder if her fingers had been busy on the delete button or something.  Anyway, I can’t imagine her soul allowing her to take this all in stride; however, she just might be one of the special ones.

Nevertheless, it’s time to heal! Our prayers are with this family.
