A stroller in the sea...
Talia decided to take an evening walk after staying home crying all day. She just had her third miscarriage and it wasn't funny to her anymore.
She felt everything was wrong with her, "why can't I carry my own child for complete nine months without anything happening to it"? She asked herself. "I didn't sign up for this menu" she said as she walked slowly down the path leading to the sea side.
She walked pretty slow that when she arrived at the beach it was slightly dark and few people were found there.
She sat by the water as tears ran down her cheeks. "*A third miscarriage, a third one, it doesn't stay so long upto three months, it just leaves and now me hurt, distabilized and useless Talia said crying as she caught the water which was pushed by the waves.
It got really dark without Talia realising it she was too engrossed in her grief. When she finally realized the time, she got up from the sand already soaked up with water she felt cold as she cleaned herself in preparation to go home then suddenly she heard the cry of a child behind her.
Talia looked around, "who could have brought a baby to the sea at this time of the night" she asked herself but then didn't see any sight of anyone anywhere. She turned back to leave and then the cry came again and it was intense.
Talia needed that child, she wanted to hold it and nurse it to sleep so she went in search of child following the echo of the voice. She took her steps slowly looking around if there was anyone staring at her but found no one.
She halted when she saw a baby stroller sitting very close to the water as the wave current pulled it gradually into the sea. Without hesitation, she pulled the stroller out of the water and looked down into it. There a beautiful girl lay crying without clothes on stretching for someone to carry her.
Talia took out the child slowly, her hands shaking as she looked left and right to see if anyone was looking at her. When she eventually had the child in her hands, she ran home with it.
On reaching her house, her husband had been worried sick looking for her. He hugged her warmly as he took her and the baby in her hands inside. She told her husband everything and how she saw the child and how badly she wanted to keep it. Her husband had no choice but to say yes just to make his lovely wife happy.
Talia was so happy she was gonna be called Mom, the baby was so cute and Talia wondered who must have dropped such a cute child by the sea to die. She was so grateful she was at the sea at that time of the night.
She nursed the child with everything she had and promised to love her forever as her own.
