Months after completing his transition, Sade’s transgender son, Izaak Theo Adu marked another milestone by celebrating his anniversary with his girlfriend.
“A year ago today you came into my life, I always knew you were out there,” Izaak, whose birth name is Mickailila, wrote. “Blessed to have you by my side. I love you my Maggie Mayhem.”
In one of his many updates documenting his 6-month journey to manhood, the "master Instagrammer" wrote about how exhausting it was both physically and emotionally.
Meanwhile, Emily reciprocated by sharing photos of Izaak and honoring him through her caption.
“It’s been a year since we met :) now you’re wearing my bb fish necklace and saving bees on the lake here with me in Fresno.”
Emily continued by acknowledging how they met writing, “the internet is crazyyy.... but I’m so happy this app brought you into my life LOVE YOU YUNG GUAT.”
September 2019 marked the month Izaak completed his transition to becoming a transgender man. He was grateful for the support his mother Sade showed him.
The 23-year-old spent six months in the hospital before revealing that he was finally coming home. “Thank you for fighting with me to complete the man I am,” Izaak had written for his mom in a post celebrating his homecoming.
