Crystal is my friend and coworker. Over the past few years, she has gone through some of life’s most extreme ups and downs. More often than not, it just felt like no human being should have to go through such extremes in such a short amount of time, but somehow she persevered, kept positive, and now finds herself in a growing family with the blessing of a beautiful baby boy.
Out of all of my coworkers, I’ve known her the longest so the JOY of her being a part of the motherhood with me was real! She has brought some of the brightest memories to my workplace, and although things haven’t been quite as beaming in the office without her she is definitely beaming with joy at home. She deserves every minute of it.
Meet the absolutely adorable baby Tariq (those cheeks, though!).
