A Nigerian woman has touched the hearts of many by giving her adopted daughter’s hand in marriage, eight years after the young girl first came into her home as a nanny.
The medical practitioner, identified as @ariellahealthandfitness on Instagram, shared the heartwarming story on her Instagram page.
Lulu, having lost her mother, approached the woman and asked her to be her mother, a request the medical practitioner willingly accepted.
She went on to sponsor Lulu’s education at a fashion school for two years and even set up a fashion house for her. Today, Lulu not only designs outfits but also teaches other women fashion designing.
Last weekend, Lulu got married, and Ariella joyfully gave her hand in marriage to her husband as her adoptive mother.
Ariella shared lovely photos from the wedding with the caption,
“8 years ago…
Lulu came to my home as the children’s nanny. ‘Please be my mummy. I don’t have a mum’ she said.
Her mum was late.
And mummy I became.
Disciplinarian and all.
She went to fashion school for 2 years.
I set up her own fashion outfit. Now she has students 😍😍
Today… I gave her over to a good man. A man who loves and values her and takes me as mummy too.
Gosh!! My heart is full. My daughter is married. 💃💃💃💃
Yes, she made my dress too ❤️❤️❤️”
