Miracle said she was single-handedly raised by her mum, Bose Ayangunna, as the family never heard from her dad after that disturbing letter he penned to her mother.
"Some 25 years ago, my father wrote a letter to my mum asking her to terminate my pregnancy and never to contact him again! That was the last time she heard anything from him," she wrote.
She showered encomiums on her mum for using her meager civil servant salary to sponsor her education.
"My mother, Mrs Bose Ayangunna, literally broke her back to single-handedly sponsor my education and provide me with the basic things of life. She would go through any length to make sure I got the things I needed.
