Words from Mama Hawa:
"Good morning beautiful family,
I wanted to take a moment and thank all of you for the support, love, and care you have given me and my family during this journey! We are immensely grateful and gracious! This has been difficult for all of us! But all have been and will forever be my guardian angels, just as I am yours always and forever! I love you all so much! Lastly, I do have a request, sorry, please keep loving and protecting my baby boy! Help Elliot through this transition as I will only be able to from afar! I love you all & thank you!
P.S. Elliot loves loves loves music! One of his favorite songs is Send Me On My Way by Rusted Root. The irony, I know"
