You are the light of my heart, you are pure joy. You are wickedly intelligent and you have the best, most dry, most brilliant sense of humor. I have the best time being your mom. You work hard to get whatever it is you want to achieve, and you have grit and responsibility in spades.
I am so damn lucky to be your mother, you beautiful, kind young woman. Thank you for choosing me. I adore you to the moon and back a zillion times. Gwyneth shared a photo of her and Apple twinning in workout gear in August The picture showed the mother and daughter after a workout with celebrity personal trainer Tracy Anderson.

We are a Black and a white mom who live with a constant ticker of background worry—for our country, our community, and our children. That said, meaningful cultural transformation grows from our complex and intersecting stories, and we are honored to share ours. When I am correcting and teaching him, for example, to listen or be empathetic, I feel a tremendous amount of weight and pressure.
I agonize that if I make one mistake or one wrong decision, and then he goes into the world and is too loud, or talks back, it could put him in danger.
Natalie: I have always been somewhat afraid to have Black children in America, but that fear got very real when I found out I was pregnant with my first child. When Trump got elected inI was six months pregnant—I held my belly and cried. I knew what his win meant for America, for minorities, I Love My Momma, and for my unborn child. Even worse, I knew that most of my white evangelical friends in the South had voted for him. Why, then, is it permissible to allow and even perpetuate a society in which we incarcerate one in three Black men, white families have 10 times the wealth of their Black counterparts, medical racism kills Black women so that they die four times as often as white women, and that police violence kills one in every 1, black men?
Natalie: I have cried multiple times seeing allies killed, beaten, and teargassed for peacefully protesting on television. I am no longer keeping silent about the evil truths of racism for fear of hurting the feelings of my white friends. Not only have I been able to voice some hard truths that needed to be voiced, but some of these conversations with white friends have been healing.

My Instagram feed I Love My Momma, friends checked in and wanted to talk about how I have seen I Love My Momma structures impact our son, they showed up at protests.
Before parenting, I was doing a lot of self-reflection I Love My Momma white privilege and white supremacy. But because of my white privilege, I was able to take a break when it became too painful.
Until I started listening with less defensiveness and being open to change, I believed the lie of white supremacy that my childhood was typical, neutral, or the default. My cocoon of privilege was built on the oppression of others. Natalie: I want a better country for my Black children, so like many others, I am trying to funnel my energy into fighting for change through protesting, learning, voting, and supporting. We desperately need to rebuild an America that allows Black people and other people of color to thrive.
The child welfare system has a long history of disproportionately separating Black children from their families.
