American gospel singer, choir director, and author, Kirk Dewayne Franklin, has taken to his Instagram page to disclose that his biological father who he hates so much now has 3-5 months to live.
Kirk Franklin, who has won multiple awards, including twelve Grammy Awards, wrote in an emotional post that the hate for his biological father and his biological mother, came after they put him up for adoption, adding that the experience never left him feeling good till this day.
The popular gospel singer, who narrated how he reunited with his father who gave him up for adoption, shared a photo of him and the dad and wrote:
“So…..Two days ago, I received an anonymous call that my biological father, who I never knew, has 3-6 months to live. I’ve lived my entire life hating this man.
“He and my biological mother gave me up for adoption, and it left me never feeling good enough….to this very day. I took my hate for him and used it as fuel to be the best father I could be for my own. But what I did wrong, is I never took that fuel, and turn it into forgiveness….and that is wrong.
“Wrong for him, me, and the God I proclaim to represent. How can I preach what I don’t practice. So I flew to Houston yesterday to do that. It’s painful, it’s a process, but how disappointed I would be in myself for this man to leave this earth without being forgiven.
“He deserves to receive what God gives me everyday. Pray for him, and for me. God this is hard…I weep as I write.”
