Chapter 1.4- A choice to make

With a baby on the way and me on maternity leave earning a mere pittance in pay, Alex must play a lot of guitar to earn money so we can buy the essentials.

I spend most of my days battling nausea and watching tv to hopefully help my unborn child learn culture, I also sometimes watch the cooking channel for inspiration.

Alex is bringing in some money but not a lot of he goes around looking for people before playing and that way gets more tips,

With lots of time on my hands, I have developed my cooking skill even further and have been experimenting with new recipes.

Mateo is quite a calm baby if his needs are cared for and he really loves his milk.

I thought I was going mad one morning, when Mateo was about Six months old, when I heard babbling and giggling on the porch, I walked out there and I saw a little girl of about one, next to her was a cuddly toy with a note attached. I started to read it. Hi, this is Jammie, I named her after my dead boyfriend, he was killed when I was pregnant in a fight. I was kicked out of my family home and have been living on the streets ever since. I managed to get into a hospital to have Jammie and then two days later grabbed her and ran but now I see I was being selfish. I saw you and your husband and your little boy two days ago, in the park and I want Jammie to have that. I have signed Jammie over to you and I am heading to my parents, give her the life she deserves please and don’t try to find me. After reading, I folded up the letter and took little Jammie inside, I then called the authorities who tried to find her mother but failed, they asked me if I would like to adopt her or for her to be put in care. I discussed it with Alex and we chose to adopt her. Two days later whilst watching the news, we found out that her mother had drowned.
