Written by Trey Anthony
Daphne had her first child at seventeen years old. Her second came two years later. And then she made the hardest decision of her life: to leave the girls in Jamaica while she went to the United States, working several grueling jobs to earn enough money to send for them. Six years later, her daughters, Claudette and Valerie, joined her stateside. Though reunited, the wounds of departure still sting and Daphne’s monumental sacrifice feels mostly like abandonment to her girls. Now adults, the tables turn as Claudette and Valerie must care for their mom in the sunset of her life. A poignant story of mothers and daughters aching to reach each other with unconditional love before it’s too late.
