Brother Clyde ... Thank You Again ... You're The Bestestest !!! ... :toast: :toast: :toast:

Even though my name won't go in the hat ... i wanna honor a child or two ...

As I've thought on this ... a child to honor ... oh my gosh ... it's way more difficult than the other games ... Ancestor and Elder ... for there are so many children! I think on all of the young people ... children ... that have come through this community ... we've been blessed so abundantly ... i remember the formation of our teen chat so many years ago ... that was moderated and facilitated by our own teenagers! ... they aren't teenagers any more either! They're Grown Now! ... the young people that have joined the Moderating TEAM ... just babies ... the only reason we have a "Teen Forum" is because our teens asked for it! ... they wanted a place that was theirs! ... so many babies ... so many memories ... so many in college ... gone on in their lives ... peeking in now, as young adults, every now and again ... letting me know that when they make it big, they'll remember us ... :) ... some that had their Mommas and Daddies here with them ... some that treated me like i was their Momma ... so respectful ... so loving ... so kind ... so creative ... so smart ... so wise ... so many beautiful babies ... :heart:

If i must call one child's name ... it would be Destiny ... for that's where Destee comes from.

My niece, my daughter, my Sister's child ... Destiny ... <3

If not for Destiny ... i don't know if there ever would have been a Destee.

Where does "Destee" come from?

In 1996, I adopted my 2 year old niece. Her name is Destiny, and she is 17 years old now. This time, adopting her, coincided with me getting online for the first time. Naturally, she was at the forefront of all my thoughts and actions. During my first attempt at reserving an online screen name, I entered "Destiny," but it was taken. I then tried "Destee," and it worked! The rest is history!

There is a beautiful story surrounding the adoption of my niece, and all that has come to pass over these years. Perhaps I will share it sometime soon, as I'm sure it would be an encouragement to many.

A brief and funny story though ... after choosing the name Destee, i was soon referring to myself as Destee on occasion, as well as others doing so. Destiny was so mad at me! With her 2 year old little self, she let me know, in no uncertain terms, that her name was Destiny, not mine, and I could not have her name! It was so precious! I had to fully and clearly explain to her that the names were different! The universe obviously knew in advance, making "Destiny" unavailable to me!

Thank You Family ... For All The Years! ... :grouphug:

:heart:

Destee

I lift up the name of my child, 'Chucky' , he gives me the courage to forge through each day. See last Dec. Chucky suffer a heart attack and a stroke, which has left him without the use of his limbs and silenced his voice to a whisper.. He depends on me to keep his spirits up, and I depend on you, the members of this great community, Destee.com for my strength and well being. I receive that everyday that I enter here. To God be the Glory!!

I lift up the name of my precious oldest boy Jordan who is so sweet and genuine in his 4 years. He has blessed me and challenged me to become a better person. All that I do is for him I love him so much.

I'm Black on Destee, I feel at home! It's been a while! Soooo in 2004 I married my Senegalese Husband, when I first went to Senegal, I loved, it! The people were hospitable and my husband's family was very kind! Well I've been there many times now, have taken African Americans, well over 150 and it has been an amazing experience!
