This I Believe
I believe in reason. More so, I believe everything happens for a reason.
The day that I will never forget is the day that I found out I was pregnant. I remember I didn’t even know what to think or what to do. I was so scared. The only thoughts that were running through my mind were negative. What was I going to do? How was I going to tell my mom? What was everyone going to think? My life is ruined.
Weeks went by and I needed to tell my mom. I figured if I didn’t know what to do, she would. Well that day finally came when I told her and surprisingly she took it well. She did help me with my decision to go through with the pregnancy. She also told me to look on the brighter side and that it’s not the end of the world.
I came to realize that everything happens for a reason. I was going on the wrong path, but God blessed me with a gift that will change me and my life for the best. I also couldn’t ask for a better boyfriend or a better father for my child. Just thinking that now I’m going to spend the rest of my life with him, which is also for a reason, makes me happy because he is the most responsible man ever and is very knowledgeable. As for me, I now know that I have to grow up and do right for my baby, so he/she can grow up to be the best that I ever wanted to be. This is also going to make me a stronger person.
Never did I think this would happen to me, but it did. When I went to my first doctor’s appointment and saw my baby. I knew that it was real now. When I saw my baby, something changed inside of me. I’m going to be a mother and all of this is for a reason. I can’t wait to see my baby and be the best parent I can be.
