Relationships & Marriage – Importance of checking family Background
It was in Ghana, Africa; Rita got pregnant when she was a Teen and the father disowned the pregnancy, so when she had the baby, she gave it to the Mid-Wife in Hospital to look after. A lovely baby boy, but she didn’t want to take him home. The mid wife kept the baby as hers and later got married but never told the boy she was not his real mother. She called him Paul.
About 30 years later, Rita was feeling lonely. She had settled into a nice marriage, had another son but had lost her husband. She was a lonely widow and one of her friends boasted to her that she was enjoying the company of younger men and adviced Rita to do the same. She said, it would make her happy and they would be at her beck and call. Rita took her advice and found herself a young man, they had a nice relationship and she showered him with money.
Meanwhile, one evening Paul sat in the living room holding his head in his hands looking as if his world had collapsed. His “mum” (the midwife) was worried and asked what was wrong. He confessed that he had gotten a woman pregnant. Instead of being disappointed, she was very happy. She had always looked forward to having grandchildren. She asked Paul to arrange for the 3 of them to meet.
A few days later, the 3 of them met – Paul, his adopted mum and Rita. After pleasantries, Rita said that, Paul’s “mum” looked familiar and asked her if she was a Midwife. Paul’s mum nodded. A few minutes later, it all came back to Rita and she asked Paul’s mum to recall about 30 years ago when she left her new born baby with her. She said to her “I wonder how he is, I hope he is still alive.”
The mid-wife nearly fainted in her chair. Paul and Rita were worried about her. She then pointed to Paul and with tears running down her cheeks, she said to Rita: “this is your son.”
Rita fell out of her chair in shock. She was pregnant with her son’s baby.
