It's not easy being a single mom. As a single parent, you have to take on double the parenting duty. Other issues can make this even more complex. For example, some young moms write about what to do if my boyfriend is an alcoholic. Please share your experience and wisdom. As you will see, these problems require a great support system, time management skills and top-notch parenting techniques. If you have tips to share with other single moms or just want to help other single mothers and single parents out there, then tell us your story.
When i was fifteen years old, i got pregnant. I had a boyfriend who i loved dearly and i thought he loved me also. Apparently i was stupid cause he left me. I called him and told him i was pregnant and that i was excited and he told me that if i didnt get an aboration he wouldnt talk to me. I would rather give up what i thought was the love of my life instead of the beautiful 3 year old Carley i have now. Carley means more than anything to me and the world and i could not have made a better choice. Every single teenage mom, just be strong because in the end you dont no how you lived without your child. I would not be who i am today without Carley. I love you Carley Renee. 08.04.2005
My Girl.I'm Gabrielle. When I was 16, I got pregnant with my first child. The father was my best friend &we love eachother very much to this day. I expected that I was pregnant for a long time. I had horrible stomach pains, I had missed my period, &I had dizzy spells frequently. I didn't need a doctor to tell me what I already knew, but Antonio (my boyfriend) needed the reassurance. I was positive.
At first, I was going to get an abortion, but that went against my christian values, so I decided to give the baby girl up for adoption. i kept very healthy &ate my flax, my veggies, my fruits, everything. I took my vitamins everyday &everything went very well. My boyfriend was very so-so about the whole thing, we had a lot of fights &he couldn't handle it. But, he still stuck by my side, he stayed strong for me &got used to it &dealt with it. But, eventually, I told him that I wanted to keep the baby, &I did.
I gave birth to Genevieve Celeste on September 4, 2008. She was 8 lbs, 5 oz 20 1/2 inches &she was perfect! I'll never regret keeping her to this day, she always puts a smile to my face, I've never loved someone so much. &my boyfriend still is by my side &loves our daughter as much as I do. Although, it is possible that this relationship won't last, I'm prepared for anything. My daughter is now 6 months old &as hilarious as ever. She's starting to crawl! &I will finally be 18 on June 21st! I love my daughter &my boyfriend very much! They mean the world to me!
Stay strong! I wish all of you luck!
His first Cry!! proud mom at 18Hello
Im going to share my story. Let me start off by saying my baby is a blessing with or without his father. I was finishing up my medical course. I started to get sick vomit sore brest frequent dizzy spells. so took a pregnancy test it was neg. (so i thought). then i waited a week and went to the doctor they told me i was pregnant. i was shocked and happy at the same time. i called my boyfriend at the time of 2 years and told him he said are you sure i said yes im at the doc office as we speak he said well how much is an abortion? i was silent and ended the call i thought to my self as i walked to my car HOW COULD SOMEONE I SHARED MY LIFE WITH FEEL THIS WAY HOW COULD THAT BE THE FIRST THOUGHT IN HIS MIND HOW COULD HE TREAT HIS OWN CHILD LIKE THIS? i have seen this done to my mother growing up when she got pregnant with my brother i said to my self how could this happen to me. well i was pregnant for 39 long weeks and had my beautiful baby boy named jayden. he is a momma boy. his father moved out of state i called when the babyy was born he said ok i hope you 2 have a good life because i started a new one and my girlfriend has a baby on the way. that short phone call hurt worse then him not being there for the birth of jayden, it also made me strong he has changed his phone number. me and my son jayden are doig fine we have a nice car a two bedroom town house i work at a medical office and i wouldnt ask for anything to have been changed. so all you single parents out there keep yyour head heald high.
single momim crystal and i got pregnant at the age of 17 and i have decided im gonna keep my baby. my baby is my world and i could never get an abortion or give him up for adoption. the baby's father knows and told me that its not his. my dad was a little disappointed when i told him that i was pregnant, but he came around and now he's in love with his grandson as much as i am. the baby's father left because i kicked him out of my house because during the pregnancy he grabbed me by my throat and threw me against a wall and i was not about to let him do that stuff to me and make me lose my son. now i am going to be a mom on october, 10th 2009 and i am happy about it and i would never give upp my son because people tell me too. i have a place of my own and i'm ready for my son to be born and we will be happy together just mommy and her lil man,
