From fear to joy: one father’s tale of a dream that came true.
All that Anwar wanted was to get a baby with his wife. A boy, a girl, it didn’t matter, he just wanted to hold his newborn after they’ve been trying and failing for so long. He dreamed of the day when his heart would sing with joy while their baby was giggling in his arms. Or crying, that would be fine, too, babies cry. As long as the baby was there, everything would be fine.
But the baby wan’t coming.
And then she was. His wife told him that she was pregnant.
And the fear and anxiety came.
After so many issues he had experienced in the past – issues that were nobody’s fault, and yet left him heartbroken every time – should he even dare to hope? Was there really a hop that everything would be all right this time, that this precious little being wan’t going to become one of the lost ones?
