Today I look through my child's eyes and it pushes me to work hard, like the things I do today are inspired by this child of mine,at times I sit down and wonder where I could be right now if I had not decided to keep the baby. Four years ago I got pregnant, it was so painful this was after highschool getting good grades then the pregnancy struck this made me see my promising future crushing beneath my sight, then I couldn't allow the younger me to be a mother after influence from several friends, yes I had no one to talk to, my sister who has raised me like a mother ever since my moms death was the last person I could tell I was pregnant,how could she react? So I opted for abortion as advised by friends.i still praise and thank God for sending that nurse to me, she talked to me and told me to keep the child,thats when I decided that no matter the consequences I was keeping the baby, after battling it within me I had to do something in preparation for the baby,and I had to move out of my sister's house,but how? So I started hawking watermelon along the streets, the life growing inside me pushed me, I wanted the best for my baby, yes I was earning and I was able to buy baby staff, when I was prepaid to move out I rented my house, a tiny room but I felt safe in it as if my new journey and story depended on the roof above me. That step has changed my life today. Then I broke the news to my sister, it was disappointing for her at that time,but she could do nothing I had moved out because of fear.slowly I was able to understand my self, I had to change friends it took me long but it saved me from being depressed,i almost killed my self at some point.the community was too quick to judge, most of the people called me names,but I swore I was going to turn into a beautiful story,i was not moving away from that community, I wanted to make them understand my battles and stories. The same community that judged me is embracing me today, my story saved many lives which could have been wasted through abortions, I have held many children in my hands, those children who could have been dumped in pit somewhere or by the roadside dead, or homeless.Its such a blessing.Early pregnancies are common in our society, this is caused due to lack of sex education amongst the parents/guardians .They shy away from these talks, girls are prone to more danger due to lack of these talks ,they get pregnant and due to fear they rush to abort, it has led to many deaths.it also affects older women mostly widows or divorcees they abort because they don't want to be judged by the community,that they are pregnant and apart with their partners.so painful indeed, I say no to ABORTION the enemy with could have deprived me the joy of being a mother today.lets hold our hands,, and don't be so quick to judge
Rocky today is three years old, he has started preschool. The only companion around me mostly, we fight and laugh and I just can't do without him today. He is my greatest insiration ,I understand two different sides of life.
Talk to that girl you see frustrated she might be fighting battles you know nothing about.
Don't be so quick to judge her.
If you have daughters don't have big expectations from them they can dissapoint you, what do you do? Fight them? Throw them out your house? ,NO.Be the closest friend they can talk to.dont shy away from sex talk then try to know the boy she is dating.
Don't push/forse/help your child to abort,they might be holding you responsible in future,
And finally pray for your children, your prayers moves with them whenever they go.
