This Is the story of how my aunt, who holds a very prestigious position in the church, became pregnant out of marriage.
When I heard that this project was going to be about crossing boundaries, I wasn't sure who I'd interview. So I began to think about people who had a set a boundaries placed around them. Immediately, I thought of people who belong to a religion. Most of my family is apart of the Christian religion, but then I had to think of someone who'd broken a rule. My aunt came to mind. Fornication is a big sin amongst Christians, and that was a sin that she'd committed.
I learned that my aunt is very devoted to her faith and her religion, but her love and devotion for her children is even more powerful. Although she may have been ashamed at first to be carrying a bastard child, she was no longer ashamed once the children arrived. Not because she didn't want the child to feel unwanted, but because she was genuinely happy to have brought them into this world.
