I'm sharing a very important picture with you all. It's one that I cherish with all my heart. This picture was taken exactly 1 year and 2 days ago. It was the first time I went to go see my dad after 18 years or so. I can't describe the feelings I had felt that day. It was surreal and scary. Bittersweet, I felt anxiety and a little bit of disappointment at the circumstances of our meeting because I was forced to realize and face that all the tragedy my mother and family went through was real. Many of you might feel confused especially if you've seen #MariposaDeBarrio, the television series about my moms life. It paints a very scary and ugly picture of my father. And I'm know the things that are portrayed are true because details from that series come directly from my moms and my families testimonies. BUT I also know that since it is a novela series it's also dramatized. So you may be asking why would she ever want a relationship with that man? Or How can she do this to her mom? First thing, my mom was such an amazing woman that she never suppressed my desire/need to have my dad in my life nor did she force me to hate him. Second, I choose to have a relationship with him because he is my father! Cause no matter what I love him. I'm a person who has made so many mistakes in my past. So 2nd chances our crucially important to me and I truly believe In the power of forgiveness. Yes, the choices he made were terrible but I forgive him and believe he is and will continue to be better. No sin is too big for God #MariposaDeBarrio #restoration #forgiveness #transformationtuesday
Reconstruir los hechos de una etapa oscura de sus vidas, ha sido una prueba muy dura. En la tele-serie "Mariposa de Barrio" (Telemundo) era inevitable omitir esa pesadilla que cambió las vidas de Rosie, Chiquis y Jacquie, hermana e hijas de Jenni Rivera.
El esposo en aquel entonces de Jenni, Trino Marín, comenzó por abusar sexualmente a Rosie, la menor de los Rivera, y luego continuó con sus propias hijas, Chiquis y Jacquie.
Es por eso que al desempolvar esta historia, Jacquie Melina, posteó esta foto junto a su padre, aclarando que ya lo perdonó y confía en que su padre merece una segunda oportunidad. Como practicante de la religión cristiana, para ella el perdón es muy importante y una de las pruebas más grandes ha sido perdonar a su propio padre por abusarla sexualmente.
Dicha foto fue tomada hace un año, y la propia Jacquie cuenta que fue una experiencia agridulce, pues se reencontraron luego de 18 años sin verse. Los mensajes a favor y en contra no se hicieron esperar, y ya son más de mil.
