A young woman in South Africa penned an appreciation post for her adoptive parents who showed her what love is all about.
“I wanna take this opportunity and thank God, for putting these wornderful people in my path. I am an adopted child I feel loved every single day, I wake up in the morning and I am hugged. I call when I am in trouble and my dad is right there within a short space of time.
This month last year we lost my mom to cancer, so now it is just my pops and I. I always laugh when we are out and people think he is my sugar daddy. Angilazi uthando olungaka!!! They clothed me and took me to school and didn’t expect anything in return!!
I feel loved every single day.”
“My dad, he takes me out on lunches, he opens doors for me, he hugs me every day, tells me he loves me, helps me wash my hair njalo mangikade ngilukile, he makes me breakfast and I’m 21!! He buys me my favourite foods and drinks…he is my best friend!! I can even talk to him about dating he is so cool!!
Thank you God, you took my mom but I still feel loved and I will forever be grateful for her and my dad taking me in and loving me like their very own. RIP mom.”
