"...Yes ooo, this is Facebook adoption ooo. The real deal ooo. I have many I call sons here, but this is official. This post is my adoption papers. You are all my witnesses. I pledge to be responsible for his education, accommodation, food, medicals, clothes, and general welfare," Maria wrote.

Shedding light on what attracted her to Samuel, Maria said she first came across the boy's artwork in September 2023 and was in awe.

She said she reached out to him and was shocked to find out his dad passed away hours ago. Maria subsequently placed him on a monthly allowance.

In a lengthy read on Facebook, Maria praised Samuel's talent and added that she related to his story more because he is an orphan like her.

"...Ndudi and I have something in common, we are both orphans. I am a childhood orphan as I lost my dad at age 2 and my mom at age 13. He lost his mom years ago before losing his dad last year. Being an orphan means you are on your own on this earth. The reality is not funny. But today Ndudi has me, a mother, who will love and care for him always."
