My Story: You Know How It Is With Indian Families
Source: Humans of Bombay
“I couldn’t conceive for a very long time, even though I was going through extensive treatments. Finally years later, something in my treatment ticked and I was pregnant.
You know how it is with Indian families – everyone begins to guess the gender of the child before it’s even born, but I never took part in that – I was only concerned with the health of my baby.
When I delivered, everyone was excited to know the sex of the baby and my whole family was really happy to know that it was a baby girl. I remember hearing, ‘oh my god, it’s a girl!’ and I just kept thinking, ‘oh my god, it’s a healthy child.’
I thanked God with all my heart for blessing me with Motherhood that day and everyday of my life. She’s 22 years today, and still the best thing that ever happened to me.”
