A Gift From God
by Jessica Lynn
This was taken at 25 weeks
I am 19 yrs old and before I was pregnant I lived a crazy lifestyle. I was a wild child and barely ate enough to stay alive. To say the least, my body was worn out and VERY run down. A few weeks before I found out I was pregnant my hair had begun to fall out.
When I found out I was pregnant I was terrified but it forced me to stop partying and to begin eating. At one point in time I considered an abortion but my mother convinced me to go to my first ultrasound. At 7 weeks I saw my two precious angels. I was TERRIFIED, to say the least, but at this point I knew there was no way I could have the abortion.
Throughout these past 8 months I have grown up tremendously. I'll never forget the first time I felt them move. It was the first time I laughed since discovering I was pregnant. It was in that single moment I realized that I could do this.
I now realize these two princesses inside me have saved my life. If I hadn't gotten pregnant, who knows where I would be. It's amazing how much I have changed my outlook on life and what is truly important. I now take school more seriously and NEVER miss a class. And, I now know the value of a dollar and the word "overtime" is music to my ears.
I look at all my old friends who do nothing but party and just feel sorry for them. My girls are going to be arriving in a few short weeks and I can truly say that deep in my heart I realize this is why I was put on this earth...To be a mother. I know I have a very hard road ahead of me, but I am more than willing and ready to do this. Being a single mom is never easy but I do believe this has made me so much stronger and it has taught me exactly what I CAN survive.
I never knew you could love someone so much without seeing their face. I can't wait to meet Joselyn and Gracie.
