Being absolutely clear about her goals in life, Cindy made every effort to become a mother. It was the most important thing to her to mother a child, and so she embarked on learning as much as possible about being a parent. She bought and read baby books and parenting magazines for years.
When she was finally ready to become a mother, a problem arose. It was something Cindy had been dealing with since she was a teenager, and it took her a long time to understand what was going on. However, she wasn’t ready to give up on her lifelong dream just yet.
What Was Missing?
Cindy felt that no matter how hard they tried or what they did, her aunt and uncle’s love for her would never compare to that of her own parents. She knew they had her back always, and loved them without question, but there was always something lacking.
Therefore, she vowed to herself that when she became a parent to Callum, he would always feel protected and loved beyond measure. She, more than anybody, knew how important this was for a child’s healthy development, and letting somebody make her son feel bad was totally out of the question, no matter the situation.
Cindy was no stranger to tragedy, as early on in her life, both her parents had passed away in a terrible car accident. Luckily, her aunt and uncle rushed to take her in before she was placed in an orphanage by the state.
Despite being very young when it happened, Cindy still felt a huge hole left behind by her parents’ absence, which became a very big motivator for her to have kids of her own. This became one of the most important goals in Cindy’s life – having a child of her own and making them feel safe and loved.
From the young age of sixteen, Cindy realized something about herself, and it wasn’t an easy thing to come to terms with. She had always noticed that having a boyfriend never went well for her and she had a particularly hard time when it came to romantic relationships. After a lot of work on herself, Cindy realized that she was asexual, and therefore not really attracted to anyone, ever.
Clearly, this posed a challenge if Cindy wanted to have a child in the conventional way. But this woman was determined to become a mom, she didn’t care how it happened. And so, this little obstacle didn’t stop her or even slow her down.
Of course, not being distracted by romantic relationships or love and infatuation also had its huge advantages. This meant that Cindy was totally focused when it came to her studies, and so she threw herself into her academic work, eventually graduating with a bachelor’s degree in biochemistry.
Cindy graduated with honors and didn’t take long to find a high-paying job with benefits. She could now afford to raise a child and become a mother without any of the economic worries. She was ready to make her lifelong dream into a reality, and she had no idea the roller coaster ride she was in for.
