“The Birth of my Son” In life some things can be planned and others cannot. Life can provide so many opportunities. I was happy the day I found out I would be a father. I was only thirty years old when my wife surprised me with a note indicating we were pregnant. I remember the feeling like it was yesterday.
My essay is going to be about the day I gave birth to my daugther. Febubary 27,2015 will alwaysbe a day to remember for me.
The anticipation of the first born is filled with a mixture of excitement, anxiety, and pain. My pregnancy had been normal and healthy. I did not have any problems or concerns during my whole pregnancy. With my due date approaching, I expected the birth of my child would be the happiest time of my life. However, a serious of avoidable and unfortunate events caused by my doctor and nurses lead me to have a horrifying experience. I went through a nightmare before I could hold my little angel.
On October 5, 2012, marked the arrival of my second child. It was around 2 a.m. when I started having symptoms of contractions. Given that this was my second child, you would think I would know that I was in labor but with my first child I was induced and didn 't have the chance to naturally feel everything on my own. Once the pains and tightening got stronger I knew it was time, and me being that person that waits till the last minute, I needed to pack my hospital bag. The time was now 3 a.m. and the contractions were so severe that I couldn 't even walk. So here I am trying to pack clothes and necessities to take wih me to the hospital while crying and taking a painful step every 5 seconds. Then, all of a sudden, I feel a gush and I yell to my husband " I think my water
When it was my 7th birthday my mom and dad decided to get me a dog. I was so excited but the day we had to get her I became sick. Second, we had to drive 10 hours to get her. That stunk because we had to keep stopping to take the medicine the doctor gave my mom.
I was the happiest kid on earth. When arriving at the hospital, I jumped out of the car, and ran inside to see my family. My mom was back in a room, and I was not allowed to go back there. I sat in the lobby waiting for hours with my Grandma T, Grandma A, and Grandpa G. We found out she was going in to labor, waiting
Getting a Dog Have you ever been so happy that you couldn’t talk well that was how happy me and my sister were when we were allowed to get a dog. So after a night me and my sister couldn’t sleep we got up at like 8:00 because my parents would of gotten mad at us if we woke them up any earlier. So we ate breakfast and ate and like usually my parents procrastinated till it was about 11:00 and Petsmart stops showing the dogs at 12:00 so then we went to see the dogs and we found the one his name was hambone and he was cute he was beagle part basit.
Dogs have long been known to make great companions. I have heard from many people who own a dog that a dog is capable of boosting your mood and your health. But is it true? I didn’t know if it was all true until my sister surprised us with two tiny dogs. After having our dogs for several months I noticed it does change our lives in many ways. For me, my dogs changed it by showing me how to care for them. They also taught me how to understand them and how to love them even when they’re annoying and clingy. Having a dog teaches us patience, commitment, and selflessness. Caring for a dog takes a lot of responsibility and commitment. We also learn to be less focused on ourselves and be more patient, as pets can sometimes test our patience. Owning a dog can actually have a special impact in our lives.
As an adolescent I tended to be very discreet and shy at times, especially around girls my age. Overall I was a very awkward child. While attending a coed elementary school at Monroe it was very intimidating. There were girls that were always trying to talk to me and I just wasn’t sure how to react to the situation. I went home several days telling my parents that I needed to move schools. So, for about two years, I attended Eden Grove middle school. This was an all guys school where I felt much more confident with the people I was surrounded by. It brought me to become a stronger individual. I have overcome my shyness and my personality has developed with much more confidence.
Before iI was adopted I was treated like crap. I was abused and was stuck in my room all the time. I could not come out. I was miserable.I would run away because I was afraid, but end up always getting caught by the police and put back in the home. I was put in several foster care home and several group homes the foster care homes treated me like another kid on the block . the group homes were nice they provided me with a place to live and a education my mom would come visit me once a month check on me and then live tell next visit
and I needed to do an internship and I was flipping through the internships and saw something about service dogs. I was like what the heck is a service dog I had no clue and I was researching it and happened to take my dog to the vet and walked into the group of golden retrievers
One of my best moments ever was going to Florida. There were so many things to do. We were in Naples, and I got to do some very fun things. I got to go to Sky Zone and it was my birthday, so I got to go to the mall and get a new pair of shoes. Another was that my sister and mother weren’t there to bug me.
How cute I screeched in excitement. I was glad we got a puppy because dad had promised that once we were settled in our new duplex that we would get one. As the car pulled into the hard concrete driveway I was about to break the door off I was so excited because I couldn't wait to get inside to play with her. A little after dinner we sat outside in the nice air and held her. Dad asked me if I wanted to hold her I was a little scared to because she
Shortly after my sixteenth birthday, something terrible happened to me. But, first let's start at the beginning. When I was five years old my parents got me the best gift a little girl could ever ask for, a puppy. My dad came into the house with what I thought was a black jacket in his arms. I was wrong, after he came into the kitchen the “jacket” popped it’s little head up, it wasn’t a jacket, it was a puppy. We named that little black fur ball with white paws Bailey. Bailey was my first dog, and she was perfect. On all those hot summer days she would chase us all around the house outside, she would never get tired. Bailey was my best friend, we even shared the same birthday.
My story, unlike many others, took a dramatic turn of events when I was merely 10 months old. I was taken away from everything I knew and had been accustomed to. I was placed in a totally new world, 7,000 miles away, with a new beginning and new family. My story centers on my transracial adoption as a Chinese girl in a Caucasian family. With my adoption into this family, my experiences have been shaped and molded to include a life that could never have been imagined in my birth country. My adoption has been the greatest blessing and it has help widen my world perspective. Facing first hand segregation because of my race has broadened my horizons and desire to learn about differing opinions.
