Kathy Kiuna: My son was born prematurely at 6 months at only 1.1kg but now he’s a straight A student

Reverend Kathy Kiuna couldn’t hide her joy after her last-born Jeremy Kiuna turned 18. The mother of three jolted down an emotional birthday message to Jeremy in a post on IG.

The preacher reveals Jeremy was born prematurely at only 1.1 kg and that he was also anaemic. The preacher says her son survived by the grace of God.

“A real tbt. When you see me dance and rejoice in God ‘s presence it’s because I know how awesome He’s been in my life. 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. Jeremy’s story cannot fit in one book. He rose against all odds and today he’s such a joy to our lives. He has a heart that can fit the entire universe. He loves deeply and is extremely sharp. So informed that you can engage him in any conversation and he’ll take you on,” wrote Kathy Kiuna.

Straight A student

Kathy also reveals that Jeremy is exceptionally bright despite his condition. The preacher says her son will be joining the university next year.

“Straight A student that graduates and goes to university next year,He turns 18 this weekend and for me to say happy birthday without giving you a little background of why you should celebrate with us would be unfair. So I don’t just wish you a happy birthday as a cliche my son. It is from the fiber of my being. I know God has amazing plans for you and that your life will impact the world in a great way. Keep fighting because indeed you are a winner by nature. May the joy of the Lord always be your strength. I love you more than words can say. You mean a whole lot to us as your family. May you live a long satisfied life changing life.”
