I was in a relationship and my girlfriend, found out she was gonna have a baby. At first I was very scared but I soon got over it. For a few weeks all was well. Then one day she changed her mind and my heart was broken. I prayed and begged her to change her mind, but I couldn't. Why is it that it takes a man and a woman to make a baby but only one of them has a choice? Take it from a guy who would have done anything to hold his baby just one time....... Well, my girlfriend and I broke up soon after, but not a day goes by that I don't think of my baby girl smiling at me, about to learn how to walk. I am haunted by the image of my baby sleeping on my chest as I hold her and make sure nothing bad happens to her.... she even had a name... I don't blame the mother, in fact, I'm not even mad at her, but I really wish she didn't have a "choice", cause then instead of writing this, I would be poor, really tired, and working 3 jobs, but when I open my front door at the end of the day, I would get to see a gift from haven. Those eyes looking at me and those arms reaching for me.... A baby is like anything else...... "IT'S WHAT YOU MAKE OF IT".
