I am 23 and on the journey of being a single mother to my beautiful miracle baby.
When I was a teenager, I was told I had endometriosis. At that time in my life I was not too worried about what this meant for my baby journey, although knowing this did mean having a baby would be a difficult journey for myself.
My life journey has been one of many ups and downs and I firmly believe, this baby came into my life out of a pure miracle.
I did not fall pregnant after years of trying and finally it happened for me.
I am actually not married and on a path of doing this on my own.
With my fertility issues, contraceptions used and morning after pill, this baby still fought for the right to walk their own journey on earth.
Why share my story?
There have been some really rough moments in this journey, and I have faced a lot of criticism about this baby, how it happened and how I am doing it on my own. But I decided to share this with you anyway, as I truly believe every single baby is a miracle. Some fall pregnant quickly and some face years of heartache before it occurs, but the process of a baby being conceived is one that cannot be described as anything but a miracle.
We all have journeys and I was not going to share mine, as it isn’t as conventional as others. But I felt like this had to at least be shared with you. Some ladies, like myself, fall pregnant and it was not a part of the plans we had set out for ourselves, or not part of the plan we thought our lives would take. But I really feel strongly that every single life is precious and worth celebrating.
Love, love and more love
Although there has been criticism about this, I have had some of the most incredible people step up and support me and this child and I really pray that this child never ever spends a day wondering if it is loved, or wanted.
Thank you for reading this, and I hope that somehow someone can be impacted by this non-conventional yet extremely blessed and wanted journey.
