MY NEW BEST FRIEND

Your Pregnancy - - Letters -

Four years ago I was preg­nant with my first child. I was only 24 and I felt very un­pre­pared. On top of that, I didn’t re­ceive any sup­port from the fa­ther of my baby. In fact, he left me shortly af­ter I told him he was go­ing to be a fa­ther. I was dev­as­tated. I went through a very dark time for a few months of my preg­nancy. One day, my sis­ter bought me Your Preg­nancy mag­a­zine, and I sud­denly felt I wasn’t alone any­more. I learned how many sin­gle moth­ers there are in our coun­try, and I felt, if they can do it, then I can do it too. With the sup­port of my fam­ily and friends, I got through it all, and I’m the happy mother to a healthy baby boy, who’s now al­most four years old! And, he’s ex­pect­ing a lit­tle sis­ter soon, as I’m cur­rently six months preg­nant. I have the most won­der­ful part­ner now, who is fa­ther to both my chil­dren. He sees my son as his own, and I couldn’t ask for more. Thank you YP for be­ing my pil­lar of strength dur­ing both my preg­nan­cies. BIANCA FISHER, DUR­BAN
