- Here is how they became fathers
After painfully losing their sister during childbirth, brothers Christian Kirk Ato Howard and Henry Abuaku Howard adopted the baby from day one to cater for her.
Struck by death, the brothers had to make the swift decision of taking up the responsibility of fathering their late sister’s baby.
At the time, Christian Kirk Ato Howard, then a level 200 student at of the Methodist University was getting set to take his final paper on Introduction to Micro Economics
The challenge rapidly became a nightmare for the young student. His mother broke the news to him that their little sister, Jacobell Stella Ewurama Howard, had given birth to a preterm baby girl at the Winneba Hospital.
Christian was not aware that his sister was pregnant but was called to come and assist with errands at the hospital.
After his paper, he travelled to Winneba Hospital to stay with his sister.
At the time, the baby needed to be placed in an incubator but the Trauma and Specialist Hospital did not have an incubator so the baby had to be transferred to Ridge Hospital in Accra.
Christian took on the responsibility to transfer the baby to Accra.

Prior to leaving Winneba Hospital to the Ridge Hospital with his niece, his sister Jacobell asked that the baby be named Aseda, meaning ‘thanks’ in the English Language.
Christian successfully secured an incubator for his niece in Accra but had to rush back to Winneba because doctors attending to his sister informed him that she was in a critical condition and needed to be referred to Korle Bu Hospital.
Jacobell Stella Ewurama Howard, 26, died before she could be transported to Accra.
Kuulpeeps reports that Ridge Hospital became Christian’s new home while he frequently performed the kangaroo mother care so that Aseda would get the bodily contact she needed.
He and Aseda stayed a month in the hospital until she weighed 1.4 kg before they were discharged.
Christian Kirk Ato Howard and his brother, Henry Abuaku Howard are currently responsible for their niece because their mother is not financially capable to cater for the baby.
Christian then made the decision to take Aseda to his house, and not be just an uncle but Aseda’s father or at least play the role as effectively as he could.
