I wanted to post this to give people hope that when you’re having a rough time…..as hard as it is to believe it won’t change, positive things can happen
About a year & half ago, I moved my son & myself out west (with my boyfriend at the time). I wanted to change our lives, show my son what its like to live in the country. We were planning to have a child but then things went from great to devastating. I found out my mum was very sick & had to undergo surgery that had a high chance of not surviving. Thankfully, she pulled through
I ended up in a custody battle with my ex & my boyfriend & I had his family interfere & ended up breaking up. I was in the middle of nowhere, with no friends & fighting for my son.
I relocated to the city, got custody of my boy, & started living my life again. Even though I was heartbroken from the breakup, I felt revamped because I had my independence again. My son & I were happy in our new place with everything falling into place.
I was content with my life, my gorgeous little man & me. I was happy just being us. My son, family & friends & me.
My Mum rang & said she was coming to stay, she wanted to see myself & my boy. She didn’t say why & I didn’t ask, she was here within days & a week later, while on holidays with us, she fell asleep & didn’t wake up. It was the hardest thing I’ve ever had to face. Dealing with the ambulance officers, police & funeral arrangements, not to mention telling my family. I am so thankful to this day to my friends & family who stood by my side through all of it.
About 2 weeks after the funeral, a mate came & picked me up just to get me out of the house for a bit before picking my son up. I got off the bike & met his friend. We hit it off & began dating. He understood how hard of a time I was having & was so patient with me. He had been told for 14 years he couldn’t have kids. He just wanted to share his life with someone who was honest & open & ok with not having any kids with him. The way him & my son hit it off was fantastic as well.
He proposed to me not long after!! Of course I said yes!!
A couple of months later, I rang him at work & asked him what % the dr gave him of having kids. He said it was about 3% chance. My response, well um hun…..that 3% has happened because I’m pregnant!!! I thought he’d passed out he was so quiet!!!
Our baby boy is due in 6 weeks & we are getting married in May next year. Even though my best friend, Mum won’t be here for it all in person, I know she was up there pushing things along & she’ll be there in spirit.
It nice to know, good things DO come to those who wait
