Broadcaster, Nana Aba Anamoah has disclosed in a revealing interview with KOD she tried everything within her power to abort her child some 12 years ago.
She told host of Live360, it was a difficult period in her life.
“It was difficult when I was pregnant. When I was pregnant, I was really young. I was a teenager. And I got pregnant. I swear to God, I tried everything to get rid of that child and it didn’t work. It just didn’t work. I remember one time when my mother suspected I was pregnant; she said to me you are going to do a pregnancy test the next morning.
She added that her brother colluded with her in her quest to abort the pregnancy.
“And then, I spoke to my brother and said ‘okay they said I should do a pregnancy test so give me your urine because I don’t want to give them my urine. And it came back positive. It came back positive then I knew my son didn’t want to go because I tried everything. People had given me injections, I did everything. And I can understand why this boy just wouldn’t go because he changed my life.”
Asked what kind of mother she is, she had this to say.
“Sometimes I think I’m irresponsible other times I think I’m the greatest mom. I feel I’m an irresponsible mother every time I wake up at 4(am) and see my son still sleeping and I’m not there to help him get ready for school. Then I feel I’m an irresponsible mother but I have my way of making it up to my son.
He’s come to understand. He knows I’m the only one taking care of him and so he understands. He is very independent.”
She has a pretty good relationship with her son, “He tells me everything including the girls. We are very close.”
