Please tell a story about a time when a person or organization tried to help someone or change something in your community:

Unfaithful

After people had talked so much concerning me and my husband and even laughing at us publicly just because we did not have a child, I decided to give in to a friends idea that I try getting a child with another man and so she made a deal and I slept with a certain man a friend of his and that same night I slept with my husband in order to cover up the story. After two weeks I realised that I was pregnant and so I told my husband who was very happy to hear the good news and today the pregnancy is three months old.
