Ring the bell 🔔 sound the alarm 🚨 for on this very day 14yrs ago a prince was born🎉 Am I going to write an epistle this year AGAIN? Ofcos I will😁This young man here reminds me so much of his late father *mixfeelings*Come with me as I travel down memory lane; On this faithful day, I walked into my then pastor’s office (I had come for counseling) after exchanging pleasantries, the pastor showed me to a seat N as made to seat comfortably he said nd I quote ‘sister the lord will visit you with a male child soon’ on hearing that my eyes went straight to the calendar that was hung on the wall of his office, and I realised I was 2 weeks late😳there and then, the world around me collapsed, I am supposed to be happy but I was not, why? You do ask….. as at that time, we were living from hand to mouth, my husband was sick and to crown it all Racheal was just like a year. At that spot I decided abortion was the solution but I made sure not to betray my emotion in the presence of our pastor. I got home and I said to my husband ‘I think I am pregnant’ and like I had envisaged he said it to me point blank ‘we are getting rid of it’ how do we have another child in this condition 😢 I said okay but that the pastor said it’s a male child o and like the typical Igbo man that my husband is now, his face brightened up at the mention of a MALE child, so he said to me ‘chi maybe we should leave it, God will provide’ he was from zero to 100 in less than a min😂 to cut the long story short Maduabuchi Richard Nwafor came into our lives after nine months and the father left us when he was just 4months (he waited for him) a lot of things happened in that space of 13 months but it’s a story for another day 😉 my son thank God I kept you, you and your sister have been a great source of strength to me this past years. Sunday left me with the most beautiful gift which is the both of you, and I love that you are my kids cos no one understands me like the both of you😍 I pray this will not be your last birthday on earth 🌏 your father died young you will live to be very old🙏🏻 I will never have any cause to cry over U both 🙏🏻 happy birthday son momma loves u scarra N ur sister loves you too
