On November, 7. 2015, my life changed forever. On this day, I decided to take a pregnancy test. The only reason I had even considered taking a pregnancy test was due to family and friends hinting that I could be pregnant. On one hand, I entertained the thought of becoming a Mother; on the other hand, I completely dismissed it. If we fast-forward to 5 MINUTES LATER! Yep, you guessed it. The results revealed that I was pregnant.
The father and I were not in a committed relationship at the time. The romantic relationship we once had, had become a close friendship. Well, within the first trimester of my pregnancy, he had decided he couldn’t be a part of the journey. I was devastated and hurt. I immediately became discouraged, angry with myself, doubtful, etc.
I was pregnant with my first child at the age of 28 years old and I had to decide if I was going to keep it and be Single and Pregnant or have an abortion. I pondered on abortion for two weeks or so. I figured there was no way I could bring a child in this world knowing the father would be absent.
Fast forward….. I decided against abortion. I thought to myself, if I stay positive the universe will make it possible for the father to be involved during and after pregnancy. I was wrong. He became more and more distant.. He became lost in the wind. Whoo! I had many days, I experienced depression, anger, and just being down right sad. I just knew God was punishing me. I would cry out and say “God why?” “Why my baby?” “Does he not deserve an earthly father that will love him as much as you and I? ” He answered, with the scripture Jeremiah 29: 11 ” For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” NIV
I didn’t have any plans on becoming a Mother. My plans were to attend Law School and go on to become a Judge. But, when I received the opportunity to mentor, love, cherish, teach, educate, a young person. I took the opportunity and ran with it. My son Jeremiah whom was named after the scripture Jeremiah 29: 11 has birthed my purpose. I now inspire, motivate and mentor women all over the world who have experienced or are experiencing being Single and Pregnant.
It is challenging stepping into Motherhood. It is even more challenging when one has to fulfill the role alone. I have developed a course called, “Single and Pregnant- Learn how to become your own Cheerleader.” (Book your free consultation today). I have also launched a clothing line to encourage and motivate Women and Mothers to steps into their purpose. I have discovered that the hardest and most uncomfortable circumstances are where our purpose is being cultivated.
I didn’t see the light at the end of the tunnel during the storm. However, the storm turned into a beautiful rainbow. I am forever grateful and humble.
