Stories about life: World first birth frozen ovary

Stories and News No. 761

News from Belgium: first world case for a so young patient, I read that a thirteen girl from Congo who had a ovary removed, at 27 years old became a mother thanks to her transplanted ovarian tissue.
A journey, a story.
14 years long...

Once upon a time there was you.
Mother, no.
Not then.
Not a hope, perhaps a dream.
Certainly a possibility.
Those you keep there, between hands folds, which everyone knows and claims to read better than you.
Ignoring what you will still write.

That sometimes has the good taste to derail the merciless board.
Where the winner are anymore used to celebrate and who loses has stopped fighting for the same reason.
Down the towers, ladies and gentlemen, let us unhorse the knights and disarm the bishops.
Bow down and clap, kings and queens.
Because this time the award goes to pedestrians.
That is where we are dead.
That is where we were born.
Once upon a time there was me.
