- Lebo Letlabika took the time out to thank her 91-year-old great-aunt for raising her
- Lebo's mother, unfortunately, passed away when she was just one year old back in 1994
- Her great-aunt raised her and is now helping her raise her five-year-old daughter
Lebo Letlabika's great-aunt took her in and raised her after her mother's passing. Lebo was just 1 years old at the time of her mother's death but her grandmother's sister made sure she was there for her.
Lebo shared a heartwarming post about her 91-year-old great-aunt who she referred to as the "LoML (love of my life)" to Facebook's #ImStaying group recently. She also revealed that her great-aunt is taking care of her 5-year-old daughter.
Lebo's selfless great-aunt will be 92 years old in March this year.
Read Lebo's full post below:
"I was born in May 1993 and my mom passed away in June 1994, ever since then this lady raised me as her only child, I had everything I needed. (Mind you she's the sister of my dad's mother). She's now taking very good care of my 5-year-old princess.
"She'll be turning 92 years in March hence why #ImStaying positive. LoML."

Lindy Kgomotso Mogane was a widow at the time Shlabela moved in with her and she did everything in order to raise him. Shlabela says Lindy took care of his needs, sent him to school, blessed him with motherly love and siblings and continues to support him even though he is an adult.
He shared a lovely post in honour of his adoptive mother to the #ImStaying group on Facebook. The young man stated that because of Lindy, he has a place to call home.
