Bobbi Kristina Brown’s tumultuous journey has come to a close. Bobbi Kristina’s short life was filled with much sadness and pain, especially in the past three years after losing her mother, the late, legendary Whitney Houston. At last, Krissi has been reunited with her mom in heaven.
While news about Bobbi Kristina Brown has been mostly negative over the past five months, following the incident that left her unresponsive and fighting for her life in a medically induced coma, it is important to remember that this young woman’s life is not defined by the way in which it ended. Bobbi Kristina absolutely suffered great torment in recent years, and yet, she really was blessed in many ways.
Born into great wealth and privilege, Bobbi Kristina was more importantly blessed to be born into the arms of a woman who desperately wanted her. In a 1993 interview with Rolling Stone magazine, the pop legend speaks lovingly of her little girl.
“Having Bobbi Kristina … I could never do anything that could top that. There’s been nothing more incredible in my life than having her. God knows, I have been in front of millions and millions of people, and that has been incredible, to feel that give-take thing. But, man, when I gave birth to her and when they put her in my arms, I thought: ‘This has got to be it. This is the ultimate.’ I haven’t experienced anything greater.”

There is no doubt that Brown loves Bobbi Kristina, as he has been by her bedside these past several months, praying for her recovery. Thankfully, the two were able to mend fences and enjoy a closer father/daughter relationship before the tragic incident that ultimately claimed her life.
