Musician Bahati has written a beautiful, comforting, and consoling letter to his adoptive son, Morgan Bahati.
The musician detailed the journey from the first day he brought him home to the present in a lengthy post on his Instagram page.
"I have Looked at this picture and Just realised you're becoming a Man. This is 10 years ago the first Day I met you. That Day when I invited ABC Children's Home (Where I grew up at) to Come and Perform at my Album Launch in 2013 at NPC Valley Road. Son I remember that day like it was Yesterday; the way you Cried and Called me Daddy. It was so difficult for me seeing the 2 year's old you forced to enter the bus heading back to the orphanage; I saw your pain and I saw myself through you," he started.
He continued by saying that he was happy that Morgan could call him father because he himself had not experienced that luxury as a child.
"Having have grown in a Children's Home at times Lonely without no one to Call Mum or Dad!My Son from that Day ; though I was not ready I decided to be a Father and I took you in as my son... Son Listen to me! I am your Father and You're my Son! God Planned it Nothing can Change that! As You grow you will see alot of Nonsense and inhuman stuff said on this Ruthless World but always Remember above all... I'M YOUR FATHER AND YOU ARE MY SON. PERIOD!"
The third act of Bahati described the difficulties he had encountered while raising the son, including ladies walking out on him because they didn't want to raise a child that wasn't their own.
"Only God Knows exactly what we have Been through... People will never know that I took you in even before I established myself. Do you remember when I could not afford to pay a House help and I could cook for you, clean your clothes and even change your beddings juu ume susu kwa Bed???
I've never shared with anyone is that even Some Women left me because they were not ready to raise a Child that's not theirs! Yes it was that bad but look at you now you have the most caring mother on Earth!"
His apology to his son for introducing him to the public and causing false claims that he is the son of a well-known football player was his final statement.
"I don't want to say Much but I wanna take this opportunity to Say I'm Sorry for the online trolls it's all my fault. Forgive me for introducing you to the public this young 🙏 But above all I want you to Know that You're the Best Gift I ever gotten - You're my First Born and Without you Our Family is incomplete!"
You reinforce your child in this way, fathers. Take notes.
