Fat Joe Reminds Parents That A Child With Special Needs is a Blessing

Fat Joe (Joseph Cartagena) recently shared a photo of his oldest son Joey, who has special needs. A rare sight, since he’s very private with his 3 children. “I’m very private with my first born. Joey is a special kid, full of joy and love, there’s no way you could understand unless you have a family member who has challenges in life. He’s my angel and the reason for all my blessings. I love him to death,” he wrote on Facebook.

In an interview with UrbLife, he talked about the difficulties of having kids at a really young age. “When I had him I was very young. I love my son dearly, but I didn’t feel like I was ready to have kids at the time. From time to time I told my mom and dad that they should have educated me on the responsibilities of having a kid,” he said during the interview.

More than 480,000 people like the post on Facebook and many shared photos with their children with special needs. Most shared his sentiment in saying that their children with special needs are a godsend.
