Mother from rape: the world is a better place with my daughter in it

Shauna Prewitt, a mother whose daughter was conceived in rape, loves her daughter. She says that when she f0und out she was pregnant:

You see, to my surprise, I did not altogether hate the life growing inside of me. Instead, I felt a sort of kinship, a partnership – perhaps the kind that only develops between those who have suffered together – but, nevertheless, I felt a bond.

She describes telling her daughter how she was conceived:

It’s the question [from my daughter] that I had been dreading for almost nine years. So I just told her, I said, ‘you know, baby, sometimes we’re forced to do things that we just don’t want to do.’ She just started sobbing at that point. After crying for a little bit she said mommy, I am just so sorry that that happened to you. But at least you have me.

Prewitt says:

I think this world would be a much worse place without my little girl in it. I think the world needs more people like her.
