Photos: Lady who got pregnant at 11, kicked out by her dad but now married shares her amazing story

Facebook user, Uriemu Onome shared her amazing story on Facebook. Read below... 
My story goes thus, sometime 20 years ago, I was naïve and influenced by peer pressure. My dad was and is still a strict disciplinarian,mum on the other hand was a bit soft on us and let us have our way. She practically covered for and took sides with me especially (being her only daughter amongst 3 sons).
I got out of hand and starting moving with the wrong set of friends, got pregnant at age 11 (primary 5) and then my whole world crumbled. The harsh reality of life began to unfold as I had to drop out of school, I couldn't sit for my First School Leaving Certificate Examination(FSLC).

People in my neighbourhood made mockery of me my dad couldn't bare it, so he sent me out of the house and I had to go to the village to live with my grandma. In order to survive and fend for myself (as grandma isn't working) I had to summon courage and face my own devil, I knew I was the cause of my predicaments and didn't put the blame on my mum or anyone. I started street hawking selling all sorts ranging from tapioca (kpokpo garri), roasted pork meat, roasted maggots, Madiga bread, sachet water etc.
Few months later I had my baby,saved some cash (through hawking) which I used to re-enroll for my FSLC, I passed with a "merit".
Still in the street hawking business, I saw myself through secondary school, I was determined to show my folks that I truly regretted my actions and is now a serious child. Enrolled for WAEC cleared all my papers likewise my JAMB and then gained admission into the university.
When my dad saw how focused I had become, they took my child and I back, sent me off to the university and took care of my baby.....
To cut the long story short, I'm now a M.ed holder from the University of Lagos State Akoka, a successful teacher and happily married by His grace. My son is currently a 200Level Law student. Strangers thinks he's my younger brother because the age gap between us is so close, and he's growing taller by the day.
My son is my life, he's the reason I am where I am today as his presence into this world made me a responsible individual. He's my victory story, he knows what I went through and is determined to make me a proud mum

Na waoh... Why can't u just read her story very well.. Did she say.. She was proud getting pregnant at 11?
And u r saying saying,'shame on her'.. Imagine! Are u better.. Why being so critical. Can't u just appreciate her courage instead of all d hate..

You are so judgemental. May God have mercy on you. If your small sized brain can think of the message of hope she brings to the hopeless. You are a very very wicked person. God forgive you!

Olotu Fidelis said...

I'm glad she made it. Mums need to learn from this story. Don't take sides! it ruins your daughters future. Nurture them well!

The support network you have like your grandma and your loving parents who came to give you the second chance save your butt. Better to learn from instructions than through experience, anyway kudos to your parents and granny

chinelo okafor said...

Anonymous Goat, no need to be hide under anonymous and be insulting people that did not commend ur waywardness, so u want me to clap for u for getting pregnant at 11? Chukwu ajuu!! I spite on ur Whore face. What a bad omen to the young girls out there. 11??? Tufiakwa gii

coco said...

Lol,funny comments...... I no go say much o,but never stop thanking God. U owe Him everything.

Whoever impregnated her at 11 commited a crime..she was too young n naive.sum girls r being exposed to sex even at younger ages...rape znt only wen its by force but also wen its with an underage.

Whitney Welbeck said...

What's the deal with some people?? Like as if she said "wowza I was so proud to be pregnant at 11". Take the positive of the story and stop being so judgemental. Gosh I can't deal

This lady made a mistake early in life which she accepted she did, but didn't let that mistake define her entire life, this is highly encouraging for people who have made grievous mistakes and wanting to overcome... You are a star dear and God bless your courage.

Ndyoly said...

What a story! Very motivational. It means i can be what God proposed for me, only if i believe without doubt.

Naj said...

My gosh! You story is amazing but i just cant wrap my head around the fact that someone pregnanted an 11 year old child! I hope it was your primary school mate that did same oo or else na rape oo! And i weep for our people. The girl had to suffer and people on this blog Are still judging her till today as wayward? She was just a naive little girl what of the one who pregnanted her? He obviously had a normal life because he was the 'special and untouchable gender called a man' mtchhhhheeeew. Backward country

Much respect... nobody is above mistake...what about your son's dad? Anyway some men easily deny pregnancy but above all you u were a strong woman... am happy for you.... remain strong.

She probably already had the baby then and you didn't know. Didn't she say she went back to secondary school? Abeg haters park well.

Anonymous said...

I suspect rape. Someone must have abused this child at some stage which led to her discovering the sweet world of sex. Good thing you retraced your steps. God. Less your son.

Anonymous said...

Amazing OK,,!!! Nothing encouraging about this unless you was raped. What should you be thinking at age 11 if not to play with toys afterwards. Pls keep this story for only you and family.

sholetoga said...

It takes the grace of God for someone who passed through such situation to come out better and strong. People should stop judging her. It's her past and its not like she's proud of it. She is sharing her story so people can learn to keep hope alive in whatever situation we find ourselves

Precious Agomoh said...

I wonder why this anonymous couldn't show his/her useless face in all his/her comments.I know is just one particular fool hinding his face in other to talk rubbish.I suspect the victim or someone close to her. Any how you like take it, this story is not whorth telling my children period. You re free to abuse yourself again under anonymous.
