Finding you, Finding me
When I received the letter in the mail about a month ago I couldnt believe it. The picture that came with the letter showed a face that looked identical to my other daughter. Getting pregnant at the age of 15 was not something that I’d expected. When the doctor told me that it was twins that changed things even more. Momma had agreed to let me keep one of the babies and raise it with a little help from her, or should I say little to no help from her. She told me that I’d have to give one of the babies up for adoption. “Thats when you send one of your babies to live with another family.” Momma said. I knew what it meant. I may have only been 15 but I knew more than she did. For the next few months I learned everything from cooking to cleaning to feeding a baby and changing diapers. Momma woke me up every hour of the night screaming at me so that I’d get used to a crying baby. I hoped to the lord above that I didn’t hate this baby as much as I hated my momma.
When the day came for me to have the babies, Momma dropped me off at the hospital. I had an uneasy feeling in my belly, and it was not just the giving birth kind. Dr. Bean asked me if I wanted to choose the baby I wanted to keep. I told him that he should choose as long as I kept a little girl. I said to take the other baby away fast so that I didn’t see it. He did. I overheard one of the nurses say that I had two healthy baby girls. I was taking one home, but I’d never stop looking for my other little girl.
