A Filipino domestic worker has told the heart-warming story of how her son was welcomed into the household of her employer in Saudi Arabia and was now treated as if he were one of the family.
The young boy, who is called Othman, speaks fluent Arabic and attends school with the employer’s grandchildren. Othman is learning Tagalog with the help of his mother but so far knows only a few words.
Her husband also previously worked in the household, but took up employment elsewhere in Saudi Arabia a few years ago.
The woman said her employer treats her son as if he were a grandson and considers him to be a part of the family, StepFeed reported.
Othman’s tale quickly went viral, with netizens saying they were amazed at his ability to speak Arabic. Some praised the employer for welcoming the child and treating his family with respect.
“God rewards those who treat people with goodness,” one netizen said on Twitter.
