Emotions ran high as Reverend Kathy Kiuna and Bishop Allan Kiuna’s youngest son Jeremy Kiuna graduated from the New Manchester High School, in UK.
Videos shared on Instagram, shows Jeremy being accorded a standing ovation as he showed up on the podium to receive his certificate.
Jeremy, who was born with cerebral palsy and recently went under the knife so as to be able to walk, had the crowd cheer him on, with his family members unable to hide their Joy.
“My boy y’all. The graduation was too awesome. To see them give him a standing ovation brought all sorts of feelings. For a boy who was born at 6 months and could fit on the palm of my hand, to come this far by God’s grace? How can I have enough words to express my gratitude? Only God. Only God. Only God could do this. Gloooooory,” wrote Kathy Kiuna.
In 2016 Jeremy went through his first surgery “Going through what I’ve been through in my life isn’t the best. Some days I mess up, some days I do the best I can. June 1, 2016, was my first surgery ever in my entire life. It was crazy because I needed the surgery to be able to walk and I finally got the opportunity God gave me and I’m happy.”
A few Months ago the Jubilee Christian Church (JCC) reverend, penned down an emotional birthday message to her only son as he turned 18 recalling the difficulties Jeremy had after birth.
“My son was born prematurely at 6 months at only 1.1kg. He was anaemic and went through a blood transfusion in his tiny frame. He was covered in pipes from his head all the way down and we couldn’t see his face. Looking at his little body there seemed to be no hope. He was born a fighter thou and no matter what was thrown at him he always fought back and surprised all of us including the doctors,” she wrote.
