Taking a five minute breather from a day of grizzly twinlets ridden with a stomach bug and cleaning up vomit, I surfed the news and stumbled on an article of great interest.
A 40 year old woman has finally won a legal battle granting her ownership of her dead husband’s sperm. She can now go ahead and plan to have that baby she and her husband always wanted.
Not only did this woman’s story intrigue me. I also realized that we went to the same high school.
We weren’t friends.
However, I do recall her hanging around the corridors, wearing the standard ’80’s attire of mini-skirt, leg warmers and white runners.
Just your typical high-school teenager.
Now, 20-plus years later, there she was with her wedding photo on the SMH website.
Not only was she making headlines – but her tragic situation and plight in love and passion has also caused a dent and difference to society as we know it.
Congratulations to Jocelyn for breaking through the system.
I hope this will be the breakthrough for her to finally have her baby.
