13-Year-Old Mother Celebrated, As Son Clocks Four

Danish Aid worker, Anja Ringgren Loven today celebrated a 4-year-old boy, named Abasiofun, who was born by a then 13-year-old girl, Ekemini in Eket, Akwa Ibom state.

Ms Loven had rescued Kemini, now 17, including husband David Emmannuel Umem, on May 2016.

She had her baby via a cesarean section, as her pelvis was not fully developed.

Sharing a photo of the all grown up boy, whom she described as “a sweet butter cheeks muffin pumpkin pie” she recalled how his teen mother stood up from bed a day after delivery.

She wrote;

“Back in 2016 David Emmanuel Umem and our team rescued Ekemini. She was only 13 years old and pregnant,”“Because of her young age,

Ekemini had a cesarean a few months after the rescue. Our nurse Rose, our Director of Child Development Nsidibe Orok, our Education Officer Don Udowan and David was all with her. I was there via Skype from Denmark”

“We were all so happy to welcome Abasiofon to the world. Only one day after the cesarean Ekemini stood out of bed ! She was so strong and NEVER complained about anything,”

“Ekemini is one of the strongest girls I have ever met in my life. To become a mother at the age of 13 is not easy and Ekemini had a lot to learn. Lucky for her she was surrounded by the best staff in the world at Land of Hope.

“Today Abasiofon is 4 years old and he has grown into such a sweet butter cheeks muffin pumpkin pie you just want to eat up”
