The Baby My Mama Nearly Didn't Have


Yes, I am that baby my mama nearly didn’t have. 


She was young, unmarried, intelligent with a whole world ahead of her 
and a tiny bump threatening to pull it all down.  But that was not the worst part...


Her dad. He was powerful, rich, erratic and had a gun.
Her mother, she was elitist, respected, looked up to, and very scared now.
The story changes depending on who tells it but bottom line is…
There was a doctor,  a few attempts…


    But that bump grew and grew and finally became me.

I am that precious baby my mama nearly didn’t have.
