Nollywood actress, Chioma Chukwuka Akpotha, has shared the story of her birth as she celebrates her 37th birthday.
The actress opened up her mother was told her chances of having a healthy baby were slim.
She stated, “After all these years, after almost not making it as an “unknown thing” in my mother’s womb, here I am. My mother was told her chances of having a healthy normal child were slim. Several years later, I am still here! Just the same old me! All glory to the king of kings! Happy Birthday to me!”
“I would be a liar if I told you everything was fine with me. I would be telling a lie if I also told you that there weren’t times, I just wanted to give up and throw in the towel. Times when I felt I had given all and gotten absolutely nothing in return. I wouldn’t be truthful if I told you that I don’t need help most times and that all was rosy and dandy. Truth is I have been down and out. Tossed up and down and almost to the ground. Been lied on, bad-mouthed, talked ill about.
“Misunderstood most times abused. For the heck of it confused most times. But when I look back, all I see is a hand. The hand that has held and supported me through it all guiding, protecting and shielding!
“The hand that does me good and has kept me and all that I call mine safe.
As I celebrate my birthday today, I just want to say I’m grateful and thankful to you Jesus!
Continue to take all the glory!”
