THE GOLDEN MISTAKE
*37 Weeks Pregnant*
#Anabelle ‘s POV
Miss.Raye walked over to Sean and I and handed us a small gift box that looked like a box made for a bracelet. I looked down at the box as Sean opened it, revealing a key. A key? I looked up at Miss.Raye with a confused look.
I opened my mouth to say something but she quickly raised her hand up, stopping me. “Before you two say anything, I would like to say something.” She sat down on the table facing both Sean and I.
She continued …”Michael and I did a lot of talking and we decided that this was going to be the best thing for you two and your baby. You two are going to have a baby in just four short weeks. We knew that it was going to be hard for you both to take care of the baby with Anabelle here and Sean at my house. So, this is a key to your new apartment. I managed to find a nice apartment for the both of you at a good price. I bought the apartment so you don’t have to worry about rent, but of course you two have to pay the bills that come with it, but that we all will definitely help you two with. So don’t worry about that.
Look, I know you two are young and all of this happened so unexpectedly. But that’s okay. We’ve all learned to accept it and move forward” she concluded
I felt Sean’s warm hand find me and he held it, squeezing it gently. Miaa.Raye smiled at us before continuing.
“As much as you want to plan your life, it has a way of surprising you with unexpected things that will make you happier than you originally planned. And that’s what you call God’s will.”she smiled
I gazed down at my heavy stomach, the place where my baby was growing and being kept safe, and gently rubbed it. A smile slowly formed onto my lips. “This baby is my Golden mistake.”I said
I looked over at Sean and smiled at him. “Our Golden mistake,” I corrected. I looked back at Miss.Raye, who was still smiling at the both of us. “You’re right ma. Life does have a way of surprising us with unexpected things that make us happier than we originally planned.
My daughter, my baby. Was definitely an unexpected surprise. A surprise that I’ve grown to love more and more each day that passes. A surprise that I wouldn’t trade anything in the world for. You know why? Because this surprise made me so much happier than I’ve been in years. This surprise brought me such loving and supporting people like you all. And-” I stopped talking as I looked at Sean and gently squeezed his hand tight, my lips slowly curving upward.
“And this surprise brought me you,” I whispered. A smile slowly formed onto his lips as he leaned down and gently kissed my lips. I pulled away and smiled at him before looking back at Miss.Raye.
“At first when I found out I was pregnant, I was scared and not sure what to do. I had so many doubts and worries. I went through with this pregnancy and experienced the judgement and opinions of many people, but now I realize that none of those opinions mattered. Because my baby has made me happier in ways I can’t even explain.”I gushed
Miss.Raye gave me a soft smile before speaking. “You know Anabelle. I too, was a teen mom. I knew how hard it was going to be, so I was a bit disappointed when Sean had told me that you were pregnant because I didn’t want him or any of my kids for the matter to go through the struggle I went though. But you know what? I was going to be there for him and for you because my parents weren’t for me.
Many people judge teen parents thinking they are irresponsible and too young to raise a child. And yes, they are young, I know. But who cares. Because no matter how old they are, God is rewarding them to be a loving mother to another one of his children, a life that they are bringing into this world. You are assisting God in his miracle, and the gift of a baby is so precious and beautiful.
And yes, teen mothers are faced with many emotional struggles. They ask themselves questions like ‘How will I finish school?’ ‘What will my parents say?’ ‘Should I abort or put the baby up for adoption?’ ‘What if my baby has no father?’. Their mind is clouded with all these doubts and questions, many pregnant teens aren’t sure what to do. People might tell them
‘Your life is over when you have that baby.’ But you know what Anabelle? They are absolutely wrong. Having a child as a teenager doesn’t end your life, it simply gives you a new and different future.”she said
I digested every word she said. She was right. Everything she said was right. “You’re right ma. But, you know, sometimes I worry that I won’t be a good mom, or it’ll get hard and stuff. I want to be the perfect mom for her. I don’t want to let my daughter down.”
“How about I tell you something about motherhood Anabelle and Elizabeth can back me up on this or add on to this,” miss.Raye said as she drew closer to me..
“Being a mother is the toughest job on earth. There is no one perfect way to be a good mother. Each situation is unique. Each mother has different challenges, different skills and abilities, and certainly different children. The choice is different and unique for each mother and each family. And There will be so many times you feel like you’ve failed but in the eyes, heart and mind of your child, you are super mom.
Motherhood is a choice you make everyday to put someone else’s happiness and well-being ahead of your own. To teach the hard lessons to do the right thing, even when you’re not sure what the right thing is and to forgive yourself over and start over again for doing everything wrong.” She paused and smiled….
