A boyhood wish is finally about to come true. But Maurice Griffin had to wait until he was a man for it to happen.
At age 32, the California man is about to be adopted.
“It has to happen,” Griffin said. “I didn’t fight for all those years for no reason.”
Adopting the burly, muscular, mohawk-sporting man is Lisa Godbold, his one-time foster mother.
“I just feel like this makes it official,” Godbold said. “And we don’t have to keep explaining it now.”
