Botswana-born media personality, Gaona Dintwe, shared a touching image of herself posing for a professional photoshoot by popular local photographer, Motso Photography. The Instagram post on Monday, 16 November 2020 saw her posing alongside two of the most adorable co-stars, both of which she considers her own daughters. 

The television star partook in a Christmas-themed photoshoot with her friend’s children, who are twin girls aged around three years old. She captioned the image with a lengthy post stating, “Now these two somehow healed my heart. They are not mine but they feel like mine, they’ve stretched my capacity to love, and they call me mama/ mummy un-coerced.” 

She went on to explain that being around the cute pair felt as though God was reassuring her that she will one day be blessed with twins of her own. “Their presence in my life feels like Gods reassurance of his love for me, like God is whispering “You are complete as you are, you are enough. Boy are they a handful. (giving me practice for the twins)”. 

Gaona thanked Motso for capturing the beautiful moment between the girls and encouraged her followers to book a session with her during the festive season. She also informed them that the photographer is now permanently based in Botswana and is looking forward to a new clientele. 

Gaona has previously opened up about her medical issues regarding endometriosis which is painful disorder in which tissue similar to the tissue that normally lines the inside of the uterus — the endometrium — grows outside your uterus. The condition sometimes results in infertility or can cause painful and traumatic pregnancies, and has been the primary reason why she has been unable to have children thus far. 

She has spoken candidly about her condition in her YouTube videos, with one of her most recent conversations explaining how her medical condition had derailed her plans of having kids at a young age and had caused her to sometimes question why she was still alive. 

Gaona explained that she had found comfort in going for counselling as she learnt that she needed to come to terms with the fact that she was grieving the loss of her dream life. She was taught that it was okay to cry and feel depressed and would often take days to feel the flood of emotions caused by being diagnosed with her condition.

She stated, “I honestly prayed to God to take my life. There I was, dreaming of being married and according to me the one function a married was supposed to perform was to give and expand the family… and I couldn’t perform. It hit me so hard that for years I was depressed and for years I would wake up in the middle of the night and breakdown and cry.” Gaona got emotional as she looked back on the hardest part of her life and expressed that she hadn’t gone back to that place in a while.
