Her baby conceived in assault, young mom sees hope in her daughter


So, for the most part a lot of people know some, if not all of my story regarding Miyah, but I just wanted to share something with y’all.

I know it’s hard … and everyone says it can’t be done … but I was the victim of assault that resulted in my daughter Miyah. 

That’s probably one of the hardest things I’ve had to go through in my life. Being a teen and sitting in the doctor’s office and hearing “you’re pregnant” was something I never in my life thought I would ever hear, so I just sat there and stared at the wall saying to myself, “this isn’t real,” over and over in my head … but it very much was real.

It has not been an easy journey, by no means, and there is little to no help available to single moms it seems nowadays, with the formula shortage, and just overall help for us, but I wouldn’t trade one day with her for anything. 

If you just decide … decide that someone else’s life is worth it more than your own, you can do it. You can. 

I am not going to sit here and lie and say I didn’t think about getting an abortion, ‘cause I told myself, “I can’t do this, I really can’t.”

Being 18, pregnant, not knowing who the dad was, going through all the trauma and trying to overcome, that I said, “No this is too much, this is not how my life was supposed to go …” but boy did God have other plans. 


I’m not ignoring the obvious obstacles and all of the trauma, but can I tell you what? You are just picking your trauma, because knowing you stopped the heartbeat of a baby that would have been born ... is traumatic also. 

When I look in Miyah’s eyes I see such a special little girl with a life full of endless possibilities for her, a life of love and laughter. I look into my daughter’s eyes and sometimes I start to cry ‘cause she’ll smile with her dimple on one side of her cheek, she’ll get all excited and clap her hands, shell give kisses, she’ll give you the sweetest hugs (which is always followed by pulling your hair but hey ??‍♀️).

I am not the best mom by far, but I have learned and grown so much in these past 9 months, and I have Miyah to thank for that. 

So when I look down at my beautiful baby girl and smile at her, I don’t see the guys that assaulted me … I just see hope. ? #prolife
