Stephanie Mills' Teen Son with Down Syndrome Released a Children's Book

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."

Hello everyone. Today is a really special day. My son, Farad J. Mills who was born with #DownSyndrome released his first book. Why is this so important? Because people with special needs are always told what they can and cannot do. My son wanted to write this book himself. He came up with the idea, the concept and the characters. Below you can purchase “The Adventures of Farad J” written by Farad J. Mills. Who is Farad? Farad J. is a fun-loving and spirited teen who enjoys traveling, having fun and hanging out with pretty girls. His side-kick is 15-year-old Shanie. The two of them enjoy taking adventures, especially those that involve pranks. Farad, who is the master of pranks, intends to always get a good laugh as a result of pranks, but things don't always go his way. Instead, he usually winds up having to LEARN LESSONS - lessons that he hopes the reader will benefit from as well. Thank you in advance! To purchase the book go to www.faradjm.com

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."

"To purchase and support a great cause, please log on to www.faradjm.com #PositiveImages #FaithWithoutWorks #NeverSayNever,” concluded Stephanie.

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.

We live in this new way of life where being first is better than being correct! They slandered his name, they tried to ruin his image, they wanted the ratings, they wanted the likes and clicks and all they got was embarrassed and humbled for being ambulance chasers! #HBO, #Oprah and all involved, owe my friend #MichaelJackson, his family and friends an apology for what they did. I really want y’all to have that same energy to right what y’all know was so wrong when y’all took the word of two individuals that had zero credibility when y’all sat down with them. You can’t blame them for trying, however when the pros go low...we go high! #GodDontLikeUgly...and he ain’t that cool with pretty either. What y’all did was unprofessional and ugly! We have got to do better and we have to stop with the assignation of people who are no longer here to defend themselves. I love and miss you Michael. Go ahead my friend and Moon Walk into your greatness. Because NO weapon formed against you shall prosper🙏🏾🙏🏾🤴🏽🤴🏽🎤🎶
