In the year of 2009 at the age of 8 or 9 my mom had big news to tell me. Many emotions were brought upon me, but for the most part I was excited yet scared to hear the news. My aunt and grandma knew about the news, so I was next in line. My mother didn't know how to tell me because I was so young and she didn't know if I was able to handle the news or not. One morning while getting ready for school, she sat me down and said she had some news to tell me. After thinking about all the possible things she could say, I eventually asked what was it? She responded back that I was going to be a big sister. After hearing the news I cried a little. My reaction was different than what anyone expected. Being that I was the only child for about nine and a half years, I felt that my world was coming to an end. I never had to share anything with anybody so I was a little selfish. The feeling of me having to now share my mom with other people broke my heart. The day after learning the news I stopped talking to my mother. I just wanted to be alone to process the information I was told. Although my reaction was different than the normal reaction, I eventually opened up and became excited to meet my new younger siblings. One day I was off from school and my mother had a doctor's appointment. I begged her to take me with her. At the doctor's appointment I was super excited and jittery because we were going to find out the sex of the baby. Both my mom and I wanted her to have a girl.
