Sweethaven Pagemap Layout - One In A Million

Here's my take on the sketch. I chose the theme of A dream come true.
To me, being a mother is a dream come true. I married late and I was't sure of my chances of being a mother. I;ve read all the high risks incurred for being pregnant the first time once you're above 35. I was above 35 and when I did become pregnant, I was close to being 40. Yes, i had my ups and downs and the final straw came when the doctor told me that the baby was no longer growing and my water bag is as dry as the Sahara. The baby is wrinkling and my pre-eclempsia was at an all time high. To save both of mother and child, a C-section had to be done immediately. Otherwise, my husband would either lost the baby, or the wife or both. We were given no option. 13 years on, my only child is growing up to be a very beautiful young girl. I love you Siti Nur Zahra' and I am grateful to Allah for giving you to me.
