The heartfelt scenes, where tears flowed freely from both the children and Rosie, created an emotionally charged moment that drew attention from onlookers and resonated with viewers worldwide.

Expressing their gratitude and affection, the parents struggled to pry the children away from Rosie.

The parents, with emotion, conveyed their appreciation, saying, “Thank you, Rosie, for caring for my babies like they’re yours,” emphasizing her significant role in the family.

Days before her departure, the family celebrated Rosie's birthday with a lavish party, underscoring the close bond they shared.

The heartwarming video has garnered immense attention in Kenya, accumulating millions of views. Netizens flooded social media with messages of support and admiration for Rosie's kindness towards the children.

This story stands in contrast to the often grim narratives told by many who seek employment in the Middle East. While some Kenyans working as house managers in the region face mistreatment and abuse, Rosie's experience and the love shown by her employers highlight a different and positive aspect of such relationships.
