Izaak Theo Adu, the son of singer Sade, recently completed a six-month recovery period after going through surgery.

On Thursday (September 26), the 23-year-old shared an open letter to his mother, thanking her for her support during the process.

"It’s been a long hard road but We did it," he captioned under a picture of the two of them together. "We are coming home!!!! Thank you for staying by my side these past 6 months Mumma. Thank you for fighting with me to complete the man I am. Thank you for your encouragement when things are hard, for the love you give me. The purest heart. I love you so much. Queen of queens."

In May, Adu thanked his family for their support and detailed the hardships he’s gone through up until that point. "Being transgender is hard. Every day is a struggle. You are constantly fighting for the world to accept you and sometimes you even fight yourself... I am lucky because I have a family and friends that accept and love me just as I am, who see it isn't about WHAT I look like on the outside like but WHO I am inside."

Congrats Izaak and shoutout to everyone who supports people for being who they are.
