“I never thought I would be responsible for raising a child in my early 20s, but all this changed when my younger sister became pregnant with my niece.

Growing up, my sister and I were close. She was always the shy one, and I, being five years older, felt it was my duty to protect her. In high school, she met a guy, but he wasn’t right for her. We tried to warn her at the time, but she wouldn’t listen and even ran away from home.   

Eventually, she became pregnant with his child. He refused to take responsibility, and my sister was too young and not ready to be a mother. My parents were dealing with some financial troubles and could barely cope themselves. For the first time in my life I felt this overwhelming desire to become responsible for someone else’s life – my little baby niece.

I had also just graduated from university at that time and was looking forward to living my life as a free and young adult. The arrival of my niece made me reconsider my priorities. I could no longer go out with my friends whenever I wanted to or go on spontaneous weekend trips to the beaches. But even with all that, I never considered my niece to be a burden. In fact, she has become the delight and source of strength in my life. Life will always be lined with obstacles, but also gems along the way.”
