Amanda was perplexed as she gazed upon the monitor as if it was her own personal home that was playing out on the screen before her. There, standing before her in the midst of her own kitchen with messes scattered around haphazardly, were three unfamiliar men.
An overwhelming feeling of fear, disgrace, and indignation flew through her body like an electric current. She could only watch, powerless, as the camera continued to wander around the room.
She had an undeniable feeling that it had something to do with him. As one of the men approached her oven and opened the door, she could feel her heart pounding inside her chest. When she turned to see what was inside, she let out a loud shriek and couldn’t hold back the tears that started streaming down her face.
Amanda could have never fathomed hitting rock bottom in her life. Just a couple of weeks ago she was on cloud nine; everything was going according to plan. The beautiful house in the affluent neighborhood, her beloved husband by her side, and the news that their family was soon to grow was the dream come true.
For years, Amanda and her husband had tried to start a family but to no avail. However, a miracle soon occurred and she was expecting her first child. Little did she know now, as she gazed into the future with joy, that she was about to hit a real low point in life.
She always thought life was going to be a journey full of love and all she’d ever hoped for. All that changed though, on that one fateful day, awakening her to the realization that everything she’d ever hoped for had evaporated into thin air, leaving her alone and in a state of shock. She was left with nothing but endless possibilities for a future that, for the moment, looked bleak and uncertain.
For three laborious years, Amanda and her husband were attempting to conceive a baby. The couple had been through so much together, she believed that it had forged them together like steel. She was sadly mistaken.
