- Kris Aquino receives a heartwarming message from son Josh
- Her son calls her Daddy/Mommy
- Kris shares her joy on social media
So it’s Father’s Day — a day usually celebrated for the heads of families in order to pay tribute to the very important role fathers play in every home, in every family.
But presently, many have also chosen to give tribute to solo parent moms who have singlehandedly raised their children, whether by choice or because of unavoidable circumstances.
Obviously, Kris couldn’t contain her joy over such a delightful display of love from her son who’s in the autism spectrum.
And so on her Instagram account, she shared the artwork done by Joshua on his activity in therapy; posting that all her tiredness just disappeared because of this.
“Nawala lahat ng pagod ko.”
Apparently, despite his being differently challenged, Josh is able to acknowledge that Kris is both Mom and Dad to him.
Josh also made his Mom smile with his “14 years old” answer regarding her age and that she likes to do shopping for fun.
He was also able to express that his favorite thing to do with his Mom is to go on vacation and to give her potato chips!
So it’s so easy to understand why Josh’s ‘token of love’ was so appreciated by his Mom.
Kris, in her post, also thanked the full team of therapists, SPED teachers, coaches, and interventionists.
Kris’ full post goes:
You all know that kuya josh is in the autism spectrum. I just got home from a very long & challenging shooting day. When i got to our room- he gave this to me… Nawala lahat ng pagod ko. Wala kaming pinatatamaan- this is just our reality. And i have been vocal in saying no issues whatsoever w/ josh’s biological father because never naman nya kami ginulo & publicly he has thanked me for embracing the full responsibility for kuya’s upbringing. I love that i’m still just 14 years old. I checked & this was an activity in his therapy he did on his own… Sharing this w/ all of you because w/o your support for me- my children wouldn’t have the quality of lives & education, in kuya’s case the full team of therapists, SPED teachers, coaches, and interventionists. Thank you- it is because of all of you i can be the parent i am. Because of you- for my 2 boys I AM ENOUGH. #gratitude #lovelovelove
Josh celebrated his 23rd birthday early this June and Kris shared a clip of her balloon surprise for him upon their return home:
Because i’m a mom… Medyo antok na si kuya & makulit ako but we are home & i was so excited about the balloons to surprise kuya josh… kahit ano man ang pinagdadaanan ko- my sons should never carry that burden. #family #home #lovelovelove ??? (take note you’ll hear bimb say dedma- now u know bakit naka apak talaga ko sa lupa because of these 2 boys ?)
