Actress Dimples Romana can’t help but be emotional as her daughter Callie Ahmee recently graduated from high school.
Romana was in a celebratory mood and she greeted her daughter for graduating with honors, as seen on her Instagram page on May 15.
“Ngayong araw na ito ay espesyal para sa pamilya namin. Today we celebrate our graduate @callieahmee (incoming college na sya) Sa lahat ng mga magulang na kagaya namin ni @boyetahmee @papaboyetonline this day is a day we’ve always prayed for, worked hard for and hoped for,” she said.
(This day is special for our family. Today we celebrate our graduate, Callie Ahmee, who will be an incoming freshman in college. To all parents like me and [my husband] Boyet Ahmee, this day is a day we’ve always prayed for, worked hard for and hoped for.)
Romana noted that times are hard nowadays for students during the pandemic.
“And often as a parent, we come across situations where there is just nothing else we can do but let our children figure things out for themselves,” she said, adding that these are times to “let go and let God.”
“I even feel it’s extra hard to reach this milestone now with all that’s been happening to us, as families, as a society,” Romana said as she thanked her daughter for making their “hearts beam with pride, joy and contentment.”
The actress also recalled the hardships they went through as a family, which was why she was crying, she shared, as she wrote the message for her daughter.
“I remember the times when we weren’t sure how we were going to pay for your tuition, asking help from our parents, working extra days and hours just to make sure you have everything you need in school,” she said.
Romana concluded her greeting by honoring her daughter’s good traits and calling her “a true queen [sister].” JB
