A woman who conceived in rape is grateful she has her daughter

From a woman who had a daughter from rape:

“Innocent life came from one man’s intent to hurt me. But my baby hasn’t hurt me. She’s provided me with healing and growth and new experiences that I never knew could happen in my life…..

I’m so grateful I made the decision to have my daughter, because she’s brought me so much joy. Every day I wake up to a beautiful smile, and had I not made that decision, I would have been left with just a disaster on my heart….becoming a mother has changed me in ways I never imagined. I feel like the most optimal version of myself. … I’ve drawn out a lot of strength I didn’t know was there….

My daughter brings me a lot of hope for the future to let me know that not every disaster has to bring traumatic pain to where you can’t cope. It actually can bring beauty….

You can look for the beauty in the disaster. She’s my beauty.”
