Peter Mutabazi anticipated becoming Tony’s father from the day they first met.
Their story is an emotional journey through family and love.
Foster children usually experience great vulnerability and might be abandoned for years.
Yet an unexpected hero makes sure that this heartwarming tale has a happy ending.
Being raised in poverty and having to live on the streets made Peter’s own adolescence in Uganda difficult.
He recognized, however, that it was his responsibility to repay the favor and join the foster care system after being saved and welcomed into a loving household.
Peter decided to look into fostering in Oklahoma in 2017.
He visited a local agency, but at first he was worried that, as a single man, he might not be a good fit.
Despite this worry, he registered and finished the required training to become a foster parent.
There, Tony, a boy who had previously been adopted but whose adoptive parents had left him in a hospital, was introduced to him.
They create the ideal father-son duo, according to Peter, who thinks their meeting was fated.
Perfect compatibility. A family that belonged together was ultimately reached after a difficult and turbulent journey.
To declare that day, he is thrilled. His citizenship in the United States has been established.
He feels happy, appreciative, and hopeful. After such a long journey, his pleasure at home and in his heart is genuinely beyond words.
Along with acquiring a new citizenship, he also now has a son.
He talks positively of his new child, who, although being just 13 years old, is exceptionally brilliant and well-read.
He continues by saying that his son is quite funny, likes to ride his bike and explore new locations.
