In the 2007 documentary “The Last Days of Left Eye”, Lisa Lopes revealed that Snow Lopes came into her life after meeting her biological mother.
The story goes that Snow’s biological mother was a single mother that she met in rehab. The struggle of the single mother to take care of her child left a remarkable impression on Lisa, which encouraged her to adopt the daughter.
At that time, Snow was only 8 years old, although her birth name and the true identity of her biological mother remain unknown.
