Hi guys, my name is Violet. Today, I’m going to open up about something I’ve never talked about before...the fact that I became a grandmother at 26 years old. I know, I know, it’s a little insane.
So, how did I end up being one of the world’s youngest grandmothers? It started like a lot of stories do…I met a cute boy when I was 13. His name was Carter, and he was hot. Like, HOT, HOT. Supermodel hot. Man-of-your-dreams hot! On top of that? He was kind. I had a rough time with my family, so he really became like a second home to me. When we dated, I wanted to do everything he wanted to do. I was afraid I wouldn’t be able to keep him otherwise…and I felt like I needed him.
A few weeks after we got together for the first time...I realized I had missed my period. I had gone through ‘the talk’, so I knew that I might be in trouble. But I was 13, I mean, what are the chances that I was actually pregnant?!
Seeing ‘pregnant’ on that test was the worst moment of my life, well...second to telling my parents. Things were thrown. Words were said. Tears were shed. They couldn’t believe their ‘baby’ had gone and done something so terrible. They threatened to kick me out for good, but then they had another ‘solution’.
My parents sent me across the country to have the baby with my aunt. That way, no one from my town would know...not even Carter. I disappeared from the town, from my old life...like a ghost.
I was scared. As the pregnancy wore on, I started to get more and more attached to my future kid. What were they going to look like?! Would it be a boy, a girl? Would it have my eyes?
My parents promised they would raise my child as their own to avoid any suspicion...that way, I could go on with my life and no one would know.
By the time I went into labor...I was excited to meet my kid. It was the most painful thing I’d ever felt in my life. When she was finally out, I was so relieved...but only for a minute.
Doctors were rushing around. She looked BLUE! I couldn’t believe what I was seeing. I got wheeled out of the room, panic coursing through me. Was she okay?! What was going on?
I laid in bed for a couple of hours. When my Aunt came into the room...I knew something wasn’t right. She told me that my daughter had died.
All the color faded out of my life...
