Kirk Franklin on what it was like for him to discover his biological father: 

“Just because you get introduced to love doesn’t mean that you know how to accept it. And I spent 53 years of my life hating a man that I believed to be my father because he wasn’t my father. And so you don’t just psychologically go, ‘Oh, I can just throw that hate away. Hey, Dad!’ You know, I’m still processing the fact that there was a man that went to his grave knowing that I hated him. And the fact that I lived all my life and 10 minutes away from me, was a man that was my father.” Franklin adds, “My therapist is making a lot of money right now… and I say that jokingly, to kind of keep from crying but you know, I’m in the middle of the storm even as we speak, and it’s really one day at a time.”
