People can be very judgmental. We can look at situations from the outside and come to all kinds of assumptions about a person’s life. There have been so many conversations, debates and FB discussions about Siohvaughn Funches-Wade (ex-wife of Dwyane Wade). I have actually participated in a few of the disagreements surrounding her marriage and life after the marriage. No, it’s not any of our business, but I happen to truly empathize with her and what she is going through.
I empathize with her because, according to reports, and a dear friend of mine, who happens to be her cousin, Siohvaughn was with Wade before the money and the fame. She was with him when there was nothing. Her parents took him in during the challenges with his own family. She supported him and was his backbone.
I empathize with her because their love began young and there is a special history there that no one can replace.
I empathize with her because she is a parent, who no longer has custody of her babies. I can’t imagine how hard that must be.
