Twitter User, @Laidetos Recounts How His Step-Father Impacted His Life In The Most Selfless Manner

A Twitter user celebrated his stepfather on his birthday and recounted how much of a parent he has been to himself and his little brother. @Laidetos said he lost his father at a really young age. 10 years later, a minister of the gospel who was just fresh out of the seminary married his mum against the cries of wagging tongues.

He said that people opposed this because the man had never been married and his mum was a widow with two sons. However, he ignored the naysayers, got married to his mum and dedicated himself to raising their new family selflessly.

@Laidetos added that his step-dad quickly took on the role of their father and saw them through secondary school and university. He said his stepfather even sponsored him and his brother’s wedding.

”My younger brother and I didn’t know exactly how our father looked like before death came…one of the letters he wrote our mum was that we would attend Kings College and Oxford University.That was the last mail she read from him…10 yrs after this man right here married our mum

He was just out of seminary, never married. His path was clearly set for him as a Minister of the Gospel, that was all he wanted to be. But to go on, he had to be married. He chose my mum then all gates of hell got broken. How would he, a young unmarried man choose such “woman”

I and my brother @TheRealGodMan were young, didn’t know all that was going on. We would see him cry sometimes in our single room apartment with our mother. It didn’t make sense,even when mum told us,i bet it didn’t click. Against all odds, I would say his love for our mum won
So, less than a year after their marriage in 1995, this man had begun paying tuitions, buying books and what not. All for the choice he made. He would contribute most part of his salaries to a coop scheme so as to secure loans to meet up with academic bills for my brother and I.
He got the two of us out of high school and universities. Married for us both. He couldn’t own a car, he couldn’t buy a land when his mates where doing so. You know why? He had taken up a task beyond his pay grade…but he always found a way to do it. How? That I can’t tell

He couldn’t send us to KC but he got us a higher education. He couldn’t send us to Oxford but gave us a degree education. Much more than all that, the way he loved our mother was Heavenly. Even our mother believed he was God’s sent that there was nothing she did to deserve him.”

He is a year older today. I don’t want to wait till I can buy him a car before I celebrate him massively. I don’t want to wait to buy him a land before I can celebrate him. He deserves everything good in this life. He’s the reason we got education,he is the reason we got married
HAPPY BIRTHDAY MY FATHER, REV J.S. OLUWAGBESAN. GOD BLESS YOU IN YOUR NEW AGE. ON BEHALF OF MY SIBLINGS AND TWITTER COMMUNITY WE SAY HAPPY BIRTHDAY. AS THIS HITS YOUR TL PLEASE RT TO CELEBRATE MY FATHER.”
