Everything happens for a reason.So here is my story... I was 17 when I found out I was pregnant wit my now 7 yr old son Gabriel an I was glad that I had my mother here to support me every step of the way because at first my sons father was around but he soon had began to say he was not the father when he went to jail whice took me by supise because he was livin wit me n everythin??? We broke up an it was a mess I mean fist fights,my windows got busted out the policed where called I just couldn't take it anymore with all of that goin on I still stayed wit him until he got out n didn't want any thing to do wit my son because he was too "brown" lol duh I'm mex/pr n dark skined so after all that I knew my son n I would be better off without him and still to this day he doesn't have anything to do with my son:-(.Soon after I began talkin to a new guy n 9 weeks after my son was born I found out I was prego again wit my now 6 yr old daughter Anazhia I was sooo shocked an highly upset with myself I almost was goin to get an abortion but once again I had my mother by my side telling me that everything would be okay,but don't think I had everything handed to me... I had to get my own place an cps had to come make sure I had food,clothes,beds ect..for my babies an I. With all this goin on I told my daugthers father I was prego n he seemed to be ok with it then he changed his # I seen him about 2 weeks later with my bestfriends sister n he acted as if he didn't know me at all so I did what any strong young women would do I got a job waitressing an did what I had to do so that my babies whould always have what they needed. I was a single mother for 4yrs I'm mean I did have little relationships here n there but none of them lasted nobody wanted to be with an 18 yr old lady that had 2 kids with 2 different guys so I had along lonely and depressing 4 yr but we where doing great. I was now 22 yrs old still in my own place I had my ups n downs but I was doing it I then started dating my bestfriends brother I thought things whould be great because we knew each other for about 6 yrs an he knew what I had experienced with my other kids fathers so after about 3 months he was living with me I found out I was prego wit my now 3 yr old daughter Anisida, just when I thougt my life was looking good he left me to move back in with his bm who was secertly hiding that she was 6 months prego with the girl he always wanted so once again I was doing this alone he then wanted nothing to do with my baby he told my bestfriend (his sister) that I did it with the first 2 why not do it again what a sad accuse of a man huh...Oh and Anizhia's dad stays 5 blocks away n still hardly see's her or does anything for her unless I hunt him down.I know this story is long I'm almost done lady's bare with me, I'm now almost 26 yrs old and I have an amazing man in my life he is my bestfriend and my soon to be husband and a great father figure to all three of my kids he treats them as if they are all his own n I couldn't ask for a better man, I got off of the shot and a little after a year we started trying to have a baby oh an we are now expecting our first baby together I'm now a stay at home mom and I'm enjoying every moment of it lol well almost every moment of it, we go to the doctors together, we've been thinking of all kinds of names and as soon as we find out what we are having we are going shopping to get everything we need for our baby. I'm so glad that after everything I been throw I still could appreciate a good man I didn't let the f*cked up so called men we have in this world ruin my kids or my life cause everything happens for a reason and God only gives you as much as he knows you can handle. So just when you think things can't get any worse you have to remember they only get worse befor it starts getting better so keep your head up and stay strong not only for yourself but for the kids you have to be role models for your babies.
15 and pregnantMy name is Alisha and I am currently 18 but I got pregnant when I was 15. I have a beautiful baby girl who is 2 and her name is Isabella who was born on January 16, 2010. Her father was never really there for her when she was first born and he took her only sometimes up until recently. Bellas father about 3 months ago moved to far away from us and now he doesnt see her at all. He left and hes only called about 3 times and 2 of those times were way past her bed time and he knew this, Being a single mom is difficult and for me what is more difficult and now that she is old enough she starts to notice his absense. When your 2 year old little girl asks where her daddy is, what are you suppose to do?
Love em to deathI'm not a single mom but I will share my story. I was 16 and I had the best boyfriend you could ask for,Chris, I was 15 and we had been going out for 2 years so he invited me over to celebrate and well I got pregnant. When I told him he was shocked but he had always loved kids so he was also happy. My parents however were not. They kicked me out. His parents were bless their heart so supportive and 6 months later we had a beautiful baby boy named Carter. Now we are planning his second birthday. My parents and I talk sometimes but I ended up moving in with Chris and we are planning to get married after graduation. I am blessed with the 2 most beautiful boys ever
Stay strong girls it will get better
