Sapphire's Super Mom Story: Part I

Bonfami’s Super Moms are sharing their journey of overcoming adversity, struggle and pain to encourage, inspire and empower single moms!


If God be for us, who can be against us?


These words never made sense to me prior to going through several years of trials & tribulations - events that would haunt and torment me for several years.


But first, let me introduce myself. My name is Sapphire Kharyzma, and I am the founding owner of Queens of Virtue - a lifestyle brand that focuses on empowering women through travel, beauty, and style. Our mission is to help rise up queens, future women leaders, who thrive on making their passions their paychecks.


As I sit here writing these words, I cannot get over an overwhelming sense of joy, because I sit here as one of your Bonfami brand ambassadors - an elite tribe of supermoms. As one of the elite, I am called upon to share with you how I rose from the ashes - much like the Phoenix - and overcame the pressure and pain of dealing with a man who was once my best friend.


I was young, naive, and ready to take life by the reigns. I didn’t know too much about living life on my own, because I had been a privileged, sheltered, spoiled little girl.


My first real relationship resulted in marriage. I married the man I thought was the love of my life, but betrayal soon crept up, and I was left wounded and distraught.


That’s when I met my son’s father.


We immediately hit it off. He exposed me to a life I never thought existed. I had a whiff of freedom, and I practically lost my mind and common sense. We went on boat rides and to parties - something I had never done with my now ex-husband.


The freedom was intoxicating, but I had no idea that this was the beginning of a major journey; a journey filled with pain, challenge, and ultimately growth.


Summary of Parts II and III: In part two of this blog series, Sapphire talks about seeking help, and in part three, she talks about learning the skills to co-parent.

About Bonfami: Bonfami is working to improve the childhoods of kids whose parents have separated or divorced by turning “co-parenting” into collaborative parenting!
