There was a child I knew from the time her mother conceived her. She is an adult now and has had quite the journey in life. This story in the blogs pages is a different take on blogging but it continues and I hope you all will read this and look forward to the next part of the story. It’s a story of love, real life and abuse and I hope this story will help you our blog participants. I want to call her Chellie. Chellie’s father was a Chicago Police Officer during the time her mother was pregnant with her and until Chellie turned five (5) years old. She was a normal child at this time except for the fact that her father didn’t want kids, yet he married a woman that had three children. Her older brother and sister lived with their father.
However, before Chellie was even a twinkle in her mothers eyes Chellie’s sister passed away on New Years day of leukemia, three years before Chellie was born. Sandy was only five (5) years old at the time.
Her older brother Dean was only four (4) years old and her other brother was four months old. Micky and Don were planning on being married on April 19 of that same year. Don accepted Michael but Dean stayed living with his father. Shortly after they were married Micky got pregnant and Don asked her to abort the baby; and she did.
This was very traumatic for Micky as she carried so much guilt over that abortion and when she got pregnant three years later she begged not to abort this baby and Don agreed, but he didn’t like it; he didn’t want another child.
Micky never expected to have another daughter and that is when Chellie came along. This was good and bad in her eyes. Although she loved Chellie very much she was afraid to love her as much as she loved Sandy because she was afraid that God would take Chellie from her so in some ways she did distance her heart from Chellie, but she was a very good mother to both children she had living with her. Of course Dean pretty much lost his mother. He only saw her like once a month. Micky alienated her love for Dean when Sandy passed away. Michael was only a baby then so she felt she needed to care for him as there was no one else that would and Micky felt that Chellie was a mistake.
You see back when Chellie and her siblings were conceived and born there was no birth control and women would get pregnant often unless they were careful and took precautions themselves. Live was so much different then it is now. Laws were different too. Which is why this continuous story is so interesting and important to tell.
