When I fell pregnant with my first, I was unmarried I waited until I was 6 months along- I had managed to hide the pregnancy through the holidays and gatherings. First I told my sister- she said she would not advise me to get an abortion but she would always love me, I cried. I went to her office to call my mother, I was too scared to do it alone. She stood with me as I called my mom and broke the news.
My parents were less than thrilled. But they loved me. They supported me. Now 9 years later- having my first was the best thing that ever happened to me- she taught me how to love unconditionally. She taught me forgiveness. She saved me.
