Actress and mompreneur Dimples Romana couldn’t be any prouder after her daughter Callie Ahmee recently graduated from high school. Not only is she impressed by her scholastic achievement, she is also in awe of her girl speaking up and coming out of her shell.
Romana shared her daughter’s handwritten letter via Instagram, May 25, which touched on their past struggles as a family while appreciating all their blessings now. The young lady recounted how they only had “one-fourth” before of what they now have as a family, and expressed gratitude for being in a family of “amazing souls.”
“It’s not a secret to everyone that my baby (not so baby anymore since she’s already off to college soon BUT I still see her for the 9 year old girl that she was) is an INTROVERT, reserved yet she is also the most sensitive, sweet and creative person I know, she’s unafraid to speak her mind and express her emotions through words often written,” Romana said.
The actress recalled how raising her daughter was a challenge because she found herself, “listening more to what SHE [WASN’T] saying to fully understand how she was feeling.”
She stated that being a parent, the normal thing to do is to make kids communicate through words, but she observed that this has changed.
“What I’ve learned based on experience, is that our children are different from one another, and their ways of communicating with us may differ but if we only take the time to be silent and hear them out with our hearts and not our ears, you may just find yourself in this wonderful position that @papaboyetonline and I are in now,” she explained.
Romana has two children with husband Boyet Ahmee. JB
