What makes one lonely as a parent sometimes, is being alone, not having a family.
I really enjoy spending time with kids. Now that I have my own kid, I sit and talk with them, share stories, and they tell me about what happened at school, it is fun, and when you are a mother you laugh all the time.
The time that I enjoy the most about being a mother is that I can ask my kid to do errands for me, stay with them, and have them communicate with other kids, so I really enjoy that.
What am I doing, is taking care of my family… while renting a chain, one of those saloons because I want to be an independent woman because I’m not after any sponsoring because here, we don’t have much finance supporting systems.
I would like to talk about children who have problems, who are called special needs babies. I would like to ask that we take care of these kids, and give them extra love.
Okay my name is Nokwanda. When I had my first child it was very difficult because I had no one helping me, I was renting out a place.
What I would like to talk about, is how we should behave as women, because things are not alright in South Africa.
The one person who has been very supportive in this motherhood journey, is my husband.
I have a great relationship with my children, I am like a sister to them. I advise them, they listen to me, they are coping, others are working right now, one is about to complete school.
The kindest to me was my mother, you know my mother was the best even though she is no longer alive. By the time the father of my child left me he did not support the child, but my mother never deserted me she raised my child.
