A Nigerian fashion designer has courageously celebrated her baby girl conceived after she was raped by four robbers who stormed her shop about a year ago.
The young mother of one, Dorcas, took to her social media page to share the touching encounter in a post which has now gone viral.
Dorcas recalled how she was at her tailoring shop sewing a dress for a customer who was to travel with it the next day.
Dorcas, who said she was a virgin at the time, revealed that while she was working, four robbers broke in, robbed and had their way with her.
She said that the unfortunate incident turned her life into endless weeks of crying and mourning.
She said at some point, she even contemplated suicide. She said she was able to pull through and return to work.
Weeks later, she said she found out much to her embarrassment and shame that she was pregnant.
Dorcas said she kept the pregnancy and was delivered of a bouncing baby girl who has now become her joy.
She concluded that in spite of her circumstances, she considered her baby a blessing from God.
In an update, she acknowledged the wide support she had received and expressed surprise at how viral the news had become.
She noted that some people criticized her for revealing her awful experience and also posting the picture of her baby. She asserted that it was her past and since she could not rewrite it, she had to embrace it. She also affirmed that she considers her baby a blessing in spite of everything.
