This next loyal listener letter hit home with me because I had a very similar story where I fell in love with someone my parents did not approve of and for many years it caused a wedge between us. But everything happens for a reason and I couldn’t imagine my life now without my firstborn, Isaiah, who is one of my greatest blessings from that relationship…
When I was around 21 years old I fell in love with a man named Wade. My mother was against interracial relationships and threatened me that if I didn't break it off with Wade she would have my kids taken from me...and my kids are my life.
Now I'm older and after my husband passed a way I decided to look up Wade and I did get a hold of him. He said that somebody we both knew had told him long ago that I was dead, and not to play games with him. I explained to him that I was very much alive! Now he doesn’t know what to think.
All I know is a part of my heart belongs to Wade. With time on our side, I pray those walls continue to come down. Can you please dedicate a song to Wade with love from Jean? Thank you so much Delilah. Jean
Well that has to be an interesting day when your first sweetheart calls you from the grave! I can’t even imagine what went thru Wade’s head. I hope he and Jean can work out a friendship, if not more, and remember the good times they had when they were young and in love. If you have a story to share, e-mail those on over to us... send them to Producer David he's standing by to receive your messages! His e-mail address is: David@delilah.com.
