MLM: Family Member featuring my son




When I found out that I was pregnant, I was stunned. It was a mixed emotion, I was happy but at the same time I was scared. I was scared that I might lose the baby again; it was just 4 months after my miscarriage. Honestly, I was paranoid from the moment I knew I was pregnant till the time I was in the delivery room.  So when I saw my baby, I was really grateful to God because He gave me chance to be a mother and he answered my prayer.


My son is the reason why I resigned from my work; I no longer want to have miscarriage again so I followed my doctor advised to be in bed rest.  She did not say that I need to resign but it’s was our decision just to make sure, so after my one month leave I tendered my resignation. It was a bittersweet decision because I have to let go my career and future salary but I have no regrets in choosing to be a full time mom because I was there to witness my son’s milestones and developments.

Our life became more meaningful because he completes us. He is the reason why we became a family and he is the reason why we celebrate mother’s day and father’s day. No words are enough to express how happy and thankful we are for our son so I always pray that we will have more time for each other because days are not complete without him.

  5. You did a great decision in quitting your job. that how life is, you have to give up a very important thing to you to achieved your greatest dream. Our children are our greatest dream and that includes having complete family. You have a very handsome little man here.

  6. Your decision, although painful is all worth it. We sacrifice some things for those that are more important. Life gives us choices, sometimes difficult ones. But whatever we choose, we reap the outcome later on...in your case, it is a wonderful bundle of joy that offsets everything else you may have given up :-)

  11. When I was about 5 months pregnant (I think) I found out that I got a low lying placenta. It was the scariest news I've heard ever! So we agreed that I should just take it easy and not work also (we uhm, traveled heaps though, lol).
