He cried, seeing her walk down the aisle
Despite all the challenges, the moment Francis saw his beautiful Dorothy walking down the aisle, he cried.
"Well, I cried. I really did. Like, I had real ears. I knew this was indeed God's doing. I remembered the many times we had prayed for this day and now it was here, granted to us and in a special way.
I thanked God for her health and for her being able to get to church, something that had seemed impossible in the morning because of the rain and the seizures. It was indeed one of my highest moments," said Francis.
TUKO.co.ke recently published Francis' story, and it quickly gathered massive reactions from Kenyan netizens.
Francis said it was not easy having to reteach Dorothy everything from scratch, including her name, who her daughter is, and what it means to be a woman and a mom.
Today, Jasmine is a pre-teen, and Francis couldn't be happier with the steps they have made as a family.
