In loving memory of Kadijah Alexander



At the age of 16, I became pregnant with my daughter Kadijah, who was born with the umbilical cord wrapped around her neck twice, causing severe brain damage, “which in the end was the cause of her cerebral palsy”. Kadijah, unfortunately, passed away on June 7th, 2019, she was 25 years old. Kadijah faced many obstacles in life but through everything one thing was for sure Kadijah always had a smile on her face and a laugh that would just tickle you.

I have learned many important lessons in my 25 years with Kadijah–the most important one being patience. For a young mother whose motivation was to accomplish any task the first time and not waiting a minute over, this was my greatest challenge. My second obstacle was acceptance for things we are truly powerless to change. Until Kadijah came along, I did not believe I would ever know the true meaning of “powerless.” To watch her, unable to talk or walk, is to ultimately know what it is to be powerless.

I am eternally grateful for the gift of life and the many lessons, she has brought to my life.

To all of you, this is simply a little piece of me. All the best and thanks for reading.
