Folasade, in her statement, described the period of her pregnancy as the darkest time of her life, as she was filled with fear, shame, and regret.
In her words:
“I am 31 years old, I have been a mother for 15 years. I was 16 years old when I got pregnant. I understand that nobody can shame me if I know who I am. Motherhood is a journey like no other.
I always tell people whatever I go through is my testimony. First came fear, then came shame, regret, then neglect. That was the darkest time in my life. I threw the whole thing God was with me”.
