"When you fall in love, just love hard and embrace the past, present and future of the one you love."
We first came across Suanne’s story on zula.sg, the story of a woman whose dream of getting married to the love of her life was shattered, when her fiance died in a car crash, leaving her three months pregnant.
Today, Suanne works as an insurance agent, and handles accounts work for her dad’s business. She is also proud mummy to 5-year-old Danson. She tells us how she survived the ordeal, made peace with her past and found love again.
Love, Hope and Loss
“I met my late fiance when I was 12. He was 4 years older than me. We started dating when I was 16. After 8 years of courtship, he proposed to me in 2011; I instantly agreed. There was no doubt about it, we shared a strong and loving relationship.
The accident happened on 2nd May 2011, around 4.45am. It was one month before the wedding day (3rd June 2011). I was 3 months pregnant then.
I feel lost for words to describe how I felt back then. Everything fell apart on that fateful day. I became very quiet and didn’t want to talk to anyone at all.
I cried through many sleepless nights.
Life as a single mum
Some of my friends suggested that I go for an abortion and start life anew. In my heart, I knew that if I did that, I would never be able to face myself for the rest of my life.
Deciding to bring my child to this world was the greatest and firmest decision I have ever made.
Sure, life was tough being a single mum, and at times society could get cruel. But I’m grateful that I had a handful of good friends who cared for me genuinely.
My parents and my ever-supportive family, have been my pillars of strength.
My dad once said this to me, “You have been through the darkest moment (Daniel’s passing) and the most painful moment (giving birth to Danson), is there anything you cannot conquer?” His sentence shook me up instantly.
