MADONNA OF THE STREETS Are you ready for love

Mic Carlson's avatar Mic Carlson

As a young girl can you imagine Mary being told she will bear a child she had no plan or money to care for? Today this holds true for many young girls who have been dealt the responsibility of another human life. Some do take this blessing and caress it with the most precious love of a mother. Others cannot accept this responsibility and make rash decisions in the face of adversity. Motherhood is filled with so many emotions that tug at the heartstrings. Unselfish love and caring is of utmost importance on being a mother, but the letting go of self is very difficult for some. Wanting and expecting a child is pure happiness. Having an unwanted child as a teen is pure hopelessness. The young girl who can adapt to this situation is blessed beyond belief as she struggles to know who she is and who this child within will become. Protection and care of a young life demands wisdom beyond belief. In any obstacles that may face her, courage and strength within fulfills the bond of love
