I wanted a baby girl but God knew I need a Boy

i wanted a baby girl

Even before we planned our first baby, I wanted a Baby girl. Even till the last push, I wished for a girl.

As soon as the baby was out, I asked my surgeon if its a girl or a boy while I was crossing my fingers. I wanted to hear “It’s a girl”.

 

But God had some other plans for me, God knew I need a boy and not a girl.

Not to stay with me in the old age, not to take care of outdoor work, not to protect our family, not to take our family surname forward but to prove my point.

 

I always had something about gender bias. I just can’t take it.

Include me in a debate on any topic involving gender inequality and I cannot stop. Though I have willingly stopped from involving in such controversial discussions even then I cannot witness the same as a silent observer.

 

I think by gifting me a baby boy, God gave me a chance to prove my point.

God gave me a chance to set an example.

    Upasana…you reflected my situation ditto!!! But then, as you rightly said, God had different plans. He wanted me to take efforts in shaping up the world that I wished as a girl, in my own little way! GOD wanted me to educate a life with the equality and bring in the change with baby steps.

      We are in the same boat Anagha. Thanks for the read and supporting my thoughts. Yes, a big change begins with small steps.

    You echo my sentiments with your post. Being mothers of boys, we have the responsibility to shape up our boys in the way we like this world to be.
