The first attempt
It was the 13th of August, 2010. Jessica’s husband was waiting outside the maternity ward waiting for the good news. It was after half an hour or so that someone came out of the ward saying something that made him shiver from within. Jessica had given birth to a sleeping baby.
Another ray of hope
This was their first attempt at becoming parents. A year later, they were again on their way towards parenthood. However, as fate would have it, even this time there were complications. Jessica was getting nervous at the thought of having a failed pregnancy for the second time. After her doctor’s advice on being extra cautious, she became all the more nervous. However, because of the support from her husband and her family, she still had some hope.
On the day of the delivery as she was taken into the maternity ward, she thought to herself that this time it would be different. She had no idea that the moments of the next few hours were going to be that of the greatest joy and highest sorrow. Moments after she gave birth to her baby boy, she realized that her baby was deformed.
She was happy, yet there was a feeling of remorse. However, she brushed aside those thoughts of remorse and decided to be the best mother she could be to her boy. Her feeling of responsibility grew stronger when she discovered that her boy was mentally challenged too.
While the rest of the family did not support the child, she took it upon herself to make sure that her boy got the best from his life. A couple of years later when she got separated from her husband, she took up extra jobs to support her boy. She now works as a receptionist in a bank during the day and sings in a bar during the evening. She makes sure to fulfil his needs and make him get the best out of life. She is certain that one day her son would be capable enough to understand the world in a better way.
