How old were you when you had your first baby? I was always embarrassed when someone asked me this question because I thought I was an irresponsible child of my parent for bringing another life in this world without thinking about my future. My relatives didn’t know about my pregnancy until I gave birth to Elijah. I was so scared that they might scold me or say bad things against me. My father didn’t know about my pregnancy and told him about it a week after I gave birth. It was so hard for me I didn’t know who to trust.
I gave birth at the age of 19. No one knew about my pregnancy but my family. I just learned to accept what happened to me when my relatives finally knew that Elijah was born and they were all happy with it. I never heard anything bad from my grandmother and father.
I became responsible with my actions because I want others to see the new me and of course I do not want my son to grow up like those kids who are under their grandparents supervision because their parents are still not over with their teenage life. I thank my son for bringing this kind of change in my life and also God for trusting me that I can raise a child at an early age.
