“Maybe it’s time to let it go.”
These were the words of former actress Jackie Forster when asked if she is willing to wait for Andre and Kobe Paras, her children with basketball star Benjie Paras, to welcome her back into their life.
“At this point, I’ve asked for forgiveness for whatever it is,” she said. “If there’s something else bothering them, I’m willing to talk about it.”
“But it seems like the doors are closed. Ang dami nang nangyari. Nagkasakit na ‘yung kapatid nila, hindi pa rin lumambot ‘yung puso nila. I feel like tama na,” she continued.
Forster revealed early last year that Caleigh, one of her three children with her second husband, was diagnosed with leukemia.
“Hanggang saan ako magmamakaawa na pagbigyan nila ako,” Forster said of Andre and Kobe.
“Parang mas dapat pagtuunan ko na lang talaga ng pansin ‘yung pamilya ko, yung mga nagmamahal sa akin. ‘Yung mga nagpapakita na kailangan at gusto nila ako sa buhay nila.”
Forster said that the two have been raised to think that she “just turned their back and abandoned them” – a claim that she hopes to set straight.
“It’s not true…Kahit anong gawin nilang paninira sa akin, wala na eh. Tapos na iyon. Pinagdaanan ko na, pinagdusahan ko na kung ano man ‘yung bintang nila sa akin,” she shared.
“I just feel like this is the time that I want them to get to know me and show them that I’m here. If you want to see who I am, just come and try to reach out,” she added.
Forster concluded that she will never stop loving Andre and Kobe, and will continue to respect their decision to ask for space.
“I will never stop loving them,” she said. (MNS)
