Legendary R&B singer, Stephanie Mills, is an incredibly proud mother. Her special needs son has broken through the barriers he faces and achieved something huge!
“Home” songstress, Stephanie Mills' adult son, Farad J. Mills, has down syndrome. For years, Mills has protected her son and his identity from the public eye.
However, Farad is a teen with ambitions of his own and she’s proudly showing him off to the world. The doting mum took to Instagram to share her son's latest success.
Stephanie Mills’ son is an "author." The songstress used her social media platform to inform her fans about her son’s new book, “The Adventures of Farad J!”
"This is a child who was born with several health issues including #DownSyndrome…"
The book is already available. Stephanie revealed that he "came up with his own vision and idea to write a book."
In a lengthy Instagram post, Stephanie said she was "completely blown away from the support my son Farad J. Mills has received [since] we released his book last week." She went on to write:
"This is a child who was born with several health issues including #DownSyndrome…But God!!! I have always told my son he can do and be whoever or whatever he wants to be. Now, he is an author who came up with his own vision and idea to write a book."
The proud mother also told fans that "a teacher purchased several books to pass out to kids to show them there are no limitations when you work hard and believe in yourself."
Fans could not wait to congratulate the young man. They flooded his mother's comments with words of encouragement and praise.
"I brought my First book. Going buy more to Share & Support! Much Love for you & Farad," said one and another added, "Should be getting my book any day now…so excited!!!!"
Some were just happy to see Stephanie in a better mood than she was last month when she slammed at Michael Jackson's accusers after discrepancies in the documentary "Leaving Neverland" surfaced.
Stephanie, who was Michael Jackson's friend and ex-girlfriend, had used her Instagram platform to call out the King of Pop's naysayers. Her post demanded apologies from the film's director Dan Reed and accused HBO of profiteering from slander.
She even aimed shots at Oprah Winfrey, who interviewed Jackson's accusers, Wade Robson, and James Safechuck.
