“I was only 20 when I found out I was pregnant with Elias. It wasn’t planned but when I saw his heartbeat for the first time during the ultrasound I felt that I could not part from him. Two years ago his dad and I split up and I was insecure about raising him on my own. Luckily I get a lot of support from my parents so I was able to go back to school again. For a long time, I was worried because I thought I was missing out on life.
Also when his dad and I split up I was afraid that no man would ever want to date me because I have a son. I’m still a single parent but now I know that is not true. Life is really good, I have a job and a supporting family. Maybe I missed out on some things in life, but it’s okay because I have him.”
