The Youngest Mother in History. Take a Guess
I always wanted to be a mother and I love babies so much. They are adorable, cute, innocent and just lovable. Still, I always thought I will have babies after finishing the school and achieving parts of goals that I looked up to.
So when do you think is an ideal time for someone to be a mother? Or when do you think of yourself as a mother giving a birth to a baby?
Recently, I discovered that the youngest mother in the history was only 5 years and 7 months old when she gave a birth to a healthy boy. Peruvian girl Lina Melinda gave a birth to her son Gerardo by going through a caesarian section performed by three doctors.
The fact is she started her period when she was only three. Also, the investigators found that she was raped and no one knows the biological father to a child. Gerardo, growing up and believing that Lina was his sister, found out the truth about his biological mother when he was ten. Later, Gerardo died from some kind of bone marrow diseases at age of sixty at 1972. At other hand, Lina Melinda, the living history, she still lives today in a place called 'Little Chicago" in Lima, Peru with her husband and children.
As I was reading the article, I freaked about whole truth that I would not wanted to know, but at the same time, I started to feel thankful for my parents and thought maybe I should start to appreciate them more... Another thing, I really hope that no one breaks the record.
