Story of a mother who wanted to give her daughter a baby brother

A lot of people want to have children after they get married. For many parents, it does not matter if the children are boys or girls. However, some mothers want to have both sons and daughters in order to make a happier family.

“When I had a daughter as my first child, I thought that my second child should be a son because I want to have both a daughter and son,” said Mom Sithol, who now has four daughters and one son.

Although it was not until her fifth pregnancy that she gave birth to a son, Sithol said that she was happy her wish has
finally been fulfilled.

Trying to have daughters and sons in the family is not so easy for the mother, and some of the children feel that they get less attention than others. The joy Sithol has for her son’s birth may sound like she only loves her son, but she insists that is not the case.

“I love all the children equally without bias, but I am most concerned about my son because he is the youngest child in the family and doesn’t know much about the society”, she said.
