When you are young and in love, everything seems to be perfect with your partner. He shows that he loves you and there is a future between the two of you. However, the ball may turn around when there is a sign of a baby cry in the next few months. It sounds like a joke when you tell your lover that you are pregnant with him. Men have spoken to women words like “Get rid of it, that is not my baby, I was not in love with you”. When all these are said to you, that is the time when you witness betrayal, hatred and regret.
Women are often confused on whether to give birth and be a single mother or abort the baby. It is a tough decision to make. Once upon a time I was madly in love however, everything changed after getting pregnant. That was when I learnt that he was not in love with me at all. When you ever find yourself in such a situation, think about your future and yourself, consult, talk to friends of good influence and get as much support as you can. The people around you will guide you to make the right decision.
I did decide to keep my pregnancy, and I gave birth to a baby girl. She was so adorable that my love for her grew every day. The more I looked at her, the more I thought about my future and hers too. My child is not only my lifetime responsibility but also a human being that changed me. Changed the way I think, learnt to deal with my emotions because of her, work on a tight budget and grew finances from micro-businesses. I have always heard people say when you give birth you develop quickly. Yes, you can if you learn financial discipline, work hard and put your child’s future ahead.
Now that my child is growing every day, I have the best entertainer and storyteller. I have someone special in my life who asks me if I am alright, to help me search for a bus fare and pick a coin under my bed. Someone to share a meal with, laugh and watch with, and that is why I thank God I never aborted my baby.
