Dahil maliliit pa sina Andre at Kobe Paras nang mahiwalay ang mga ito kay Jackie Forster, maraming mga bagay na hindi nila alam tungkol sa kanilang ina at kung sino ito.
Pero ayon kay Jackie, wala siyang dapat sabihin kundi dapat makita ng kanyang mga nawalay na anak kung sino talaga siya.
Saad ng dating aktres sa PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal), “I just feel I have to live by example.
“I can’t tell Andre and Kobe who I am and make them believe I’m whatever it is that I want.
“They just need to see because, in all honesty, I’m just human.
“I am not perfect, I make mistakes, but I would like to think that I am a good mom.
“I would like to think I am a cool mom. I would like to think I’m an open mom.”
When you have little pieces of you walking around on earth, all you can do that makes the biggest difference is to pray for them. When your heart beats in tune with your prayer their Homing Device will activate, eventually they come home. This is all that matters now, that we are together again ?? no matter what anyone says @_kokoparas will always be mamas hero ???? Thank you to kuya @andreparas for taking good care of him while mama was away. God is sooooo good! I told you all - #prayerswork I ask for everyone to please respect their privacy now, we have shared so much of our personal lives with everyone and we want to take this time to heal and bond. No more bashing please. We lift you all up in prayers and speak blessing upon you all. The boys and I do not want to dwell on the past. We will not speak on behalf of people outside of our relationship. That’s not our place. On behalf of my two sons I want to thank those of you who prayed for us and with us! God bless your hearts a million folds!!!! ?? ?? ?? ?? ?? J.A.C.K.Y
Sabi pa ni Jackie, “I don’t ever wanna live in hypocrisy.
“I don’t want to ever live in negativity, that’s not something that I like.
“It’s not something I welcome for me or my friends, what more with my family, like with my children, when they make mistakes.
“Yes, I do scold them, and I tell them why it’s wrong.
“But I also let them know that it’s okay to make mistakes, ‘coz it’s true and that’s the only way they can learn, and it’s gonna be the same for me and it’s gonna be the same for all my children.
“It’s gonna be the same for my friends."
Patuloy niya, “I think that’s why I kept the best of the best of friends because I’ve always been honest. I’ve always been true and real.
“I don’t keep yes people around me because it’s not the kind of life I wanna live.”
HAPPY REUNION. Si Andre na lang ang hindi pa nakikita nang personal ng half-siblings niyang sina Jared, Caleigh, at Yohan.
Nasa Pilipinas kasi si Andre nang lumipad ang mga bata sa Amerika mula sa London noong February 2018 para makilala nang personal si Kobe.
“Kuya” ang tawag ng mga bata kina Andre at Kobe kahit hindi pa sila nagkikita.
Madalas kasing nagkukuwento si Jackie tungkol sa kanilang mga nakatatandang kapatid.
Ipinapakita rin ni Jackie sa kanyang mga anak ang mga litrato at videos nina Andre at Kobe.
Sa pagpapatuloy ng eksklusibong panayam ng PEP.ph kay Jackie, ikinuwento niya ang pagkikita sa unang pagkakataon ni Kobe at mga kapatid nito.
Lahad ni Jackie, “I stayed in L.A. [Los Angeles] for one month. For three weeks, kaming dalawa lang ni Kobe.
“The last week, the fourth week, my family from London flew to America.
“‘Tapos, bumalik kami ng London, after one month, which was Easter, we went back to L.A., to spent two weeks there, kasama uli yung mga bata.
“When they met Kobe the first time, after his basketball practice, they were super excited.
“It was easy, it was super easy because when we were walking to the carpark to have dinner, they all wanted to hold his hands, and he did.
“During dinner, they all want to seat next to him and they kept talking to Kobe.
“He was making conversation, it was very natural na walang pilit.
“It didn’t feel awkward.”
SUPPORTIVE AND LOVING HUSBAND. Kasama rin ni Jackie noong sandaling iyon ang kanyang American husband.
Ayon kay Jackie, “My husband is super understanding.
“I mean, with all that we have been through, in the beginning, it wasn’t easy.
“It was not, like… when he came to me, everything was just great.
“It took a lot of work because we have cultural differences and also, he’s not used to… he doesn’t understand my life.
“He doesn’t understand showbiz, all the responsibilities that come with it.
“All the burdens, even the good stuff, he doesn’t understand it.
“It took him awhile.
“I think it helped also that we live outside of the Philippines, but living outside of the Philippines doesn’t give you full grasp of it.
“So when we visit here, it was the only time he would really feel, or if we go to places where there were lots of Filipinos, that’s the only time he realized, ‘Oh, wow, I forgot, people know my wife.’
GOOD CHOICE FOR KOBE. Suportado naman ni Jackie ang desisyon ni Kobe na bumalik ng Pilipinas upang dito ipagpatuloy ang kanyang basketball career.
Kuwento ni Jackie, “Before we left America during Easter, we first helped Kobe moved.
“And so, when he moved in with my mom, I was thinking he was gonna first kinda of weigh things what he wants to do in America.
“And then, suddenly, he thought of going to the Philippines.
“From what I know, he really missed basketball… like to play.
“I think it was a good choice also for him to come home.
“I think it was a good choice for him to play in the Philippines, to feel the love in his country.”
