Gospel Artist, Kirk Franklin Recounts How He hated His Parents For Giving Up For Adoption

Gospel artist, Kirk Franklin has recounted how he hated his biological parents for giving him up for adoption. He said he never forgave them until he received a call that his father had 3-6 months to live on earth. He flew in and tried to make it right by his parents.

In his words, he wrote: So…..
Two days ago, I received an anonymous call that my biological father, who I never knew, has 3-6 months to live. I’ve lived my entire life hating this man.

He and my biological mother gave me up for adoption, and it left me never feeling good enough….to this very day. I took my hate for him and used it as fuel to be the best father I could be on my own. But what I did wrong, is I never took that fuel, and turn it into forgiveness….and that is wrong. Wrong for him, me, and the God I proclaim to represent. How can I preach what I don’t practice.

So I flew to Houston yesterday to do that. It’s painful, it’s a process, but how disappointed I would be in myself for this man to leave this earth without being forgiven. He deserves to receive what God gives me everyday. Pray for him, and for me. God this is hard…I weep as I write.’
