Sleep, my child, to wake up to a new life!

Most often in households, girls are often admonished by saying “these things happen only to girls who are sloppy in class and they probably don’t have anything better to do”
Well here is a young frail 16-year-old girl who is a class topper who was abused by her stepfather and did not have the courage to voice the assaults being inflicted on her
Pregnant and 4 months later she was sent on her. On her first exam at a hospital, she was told that ‘ her passage was way too small to have a baby’
She took it strongly to her heart and felt fear loom strongly in her mind
She struggled with anemia where she required iron infusions at a very kind institution .(interestingly she was refused care at two other institutions as they did not wish to have anything involved with a girl who had a lodged an FIR against her assailant )
She improved in terms of health ever since she arrived at Tejus home by putting on a good 6 kilos
She worked through her fears and inhibitions and was bold and strong throughout her labor
Maybe I came too early
Maybe I should have waited some more
And an hour later a lovely baby was born strong and healthy at 3.1 kg
I have accomplished what I thought I could not!!! And I am proud!
Is it over??
Can I go back to school?
She hugged and kissed us all
All she wanted was a masala dosa
And she slept finally with a smile
Sleep to replenish your strength
Sleep like never before with your heart and mind finally at rest
Sleep well and keep my child as you will wake up to begin life fresh and new just as you want
