One year ago, Takieyah Reaves was shot in her stomach. Thankfully, the bullets didn’t get to her intestine but it destroyed her stomach wall. A new wall was created with the skin on her thighs.

The process of recovery was a very hard one but Takieyah takes pride in not giving up. Her stomach may not be the greatest sight to behold, it holds a testimony she is forever grateful for, so, she cant be bothered by how people feel about her stomach or what they say.

Read her testimony

This is the reason everyone says “congratulations” the reason everyone asks “how many months?” “boy or girl?” this is the reason i often hear “your stomach growling that baby hungry” this is the reasons most sentences end with “because you’re pregnant” this is the reason a ignorant person said ”that’s why you look pregnant”…

I got shot in the stomach. The bullet shattered, but it missed every major organ in my stomach (my God is so good🙌🏾🙏🏾💪🏾) but damaging my stomach wall beyond repair so they took the skin off my thighs (skin graft) and put it on my stomach to create a new wall the only thing between my intestines and the outside of my stomach is that skin.

When People say congrats i say thank you bcuz this is my baby, my bullet baby. i named her Siya. Yes it’s a girl and I embrace her. I talk to her. I thank her. I love her & when I get my last surgery I will cry over losing her😩

Some people will be disgusted, others will see the blessing. I’ve died 7 times over this belly. This belly is my strength, I am not ashamed & everyone who truly love me made this our baby our miracle. We are not ashamed, we are honored to walk around with this god given badge of honor.

This is my testimony, this is my story. If ever you feel discouraged please remember me & remember I didn’t ask for this. There is a God. I am living proof & what he’s done for me, he will surely do for you. Please don’t ever ever give up don’t hate, always forgive, smile, laugh be optimistic be happy pray & stay blessed god is real‼️

Don’t have to go through what i had to grow through 🙏🏾 Start listening to him quiet down & you’ll hear him believe me he hears you & he responds you just have to listen💪🏾 It works for me..Love Peace And Blessings🖤
