THE PRICELESS FRUIT OF MY WOMB
I’m a young mother, 22 years old, to a beautiful baby boy Ntshisekelo Asamela Ndlovu.
He keeps me busy 24/7, from waking up in the early hours of the morning to the late hours of the evening.
You see it in his eyes that it is going to be a long night again – no sleeping, “pay attention to me”. He will join me while am busy trying to study. We’ve even developed a routine; we work out together as I try to restore my body back to its old self. Training has kept him flexible and energetic long before he was even born.
Despite having a baby at such an early age, I have come to appreciate the beautiful experience that comes with it.
Being responsible at my age sometimes is challenging as life stops to be the way you knew it. You now are responsible, not just for yourself, but for somebody else. Although I am learning from my mother and sister as well, it has been wonderful and a blessing to have a helping hand from his father. It makes things much easier.
I thank God for my everyday ongoing learning experience with Asamela. It is a joyful journey as he is now three months old. I enjoy seeing him grow and learning new things every moment. He truly is priceless – a priceless fruit of my womb from God. NOLUTHANDO SITHOLE, WESTONARIA
