Did you know Andrea Bocelli's mother was told to abort her child?
Edi Bocelli's pregnancy was extremely complicated and painful. The doctors were believed to put ice on her belly for relief. Although further treatments didn't help and she was told to get rid of the unborn infant, Andrea's mother refused to abort him and put all faith into God's plan for her.
Thanks to her decision and belief, the Italian singer is alive and happy even with total blindness.
Genes are powerful, and Andrea Bocelli proved it by posting a throwback photo with his mother Edi.
The A-list singer, who happens to be a carbon copy of his courageous and beautiful mum, added a heartfelt message to the post. He wrote:
Mom, saying thank you to you does not seem enough to me!
Bocelli further continued:
And I want to say to you mom, don’t be proud of a son who sings, but be proud of yourself, of your strengths and your wonderful faults that have shaped me, of your stubbornness and courage.
Andrea Bocelli is great both at singing and writing touching texts, which bring tears to people's eyes. The singer concluded:
I am sending you a big hug, mom Edi, as well as to all the mothers in the world, because it is all of you who truly make the world go round.
These words are undoubtedly wonderful and relatable. Indeed, mothers make the world better, and having a mother is like winning the most important prize!
