My name is Grace. When I was just 13, I was abducted by the LRA and forced to become a wife to a rebel commander. One day, in 2004, during an attack, I was hit by a bomb and suffered many injuries and bullet wounds. I walked to a nearby hospital. While there, the doctor discovered that I was pregnant. Often times, women would typically attempt to self-abort these "bush babies" (babies conceived during the war) with sticks. Despite the horrible circumstances, I decided to continue my pregnancy. When the baby was born, I named him "Apwoyorwot", which means "thank you, God."
I wear APWOYORWOT.
