My baby changed my life. Since the day she was born, she has given me purpose in life. She is someone who I can live for and someone who will always love me.

Now I know that I have a responsibility in life, I have someone I wake up in the morning and go to work for. I used to love to ‘freak’ or ‘umjaivo’, but now I know how to spend my money. I never used to budget and always used my money carelessly, but now I have someone to spend my money on. I never knew it was possible to love someone so much but my baby is my testimony.

The moment I held her in my arms I knew she would make a big difference in my life. I cried because I knew I would have to do my utmost best to give her a better future. I will now take life a lot more seriously, I will hustle and make a living for the both of us. She changed how I think and do things. I am more open in life now because of her.

I didn’t know I can raise someone until God gave me her. I know I am not the best mother but I am trying to be better for my daughter. To see her smile every day is my goal and my dream.
