my True Love
Before I had my baby, i Didn't love anyone but myself. My story begins when I met my Baby's dad and we started a relationship. We went out for a quit a long time, until one day I decided to back away. One day I found he was married. I went back with him and he promise that he was going to leave his wife. One day I gave him my most valuable thing and i found out I was pregnant, at age 15 and he was 21. He didn't know I was pregnant and me either until I was 4 months pregnant. I was scare and hid my pregnancy for 9 months. My mom found out the day I was in labor.MY mom and my dad were mad at me and wanted to kick me out. I asked them sorry and forgive me. Today my Baby is 1 years old and my parents love him. My parents give all their help and I thank them. I am going through stuggles though because I am a single mom. I am Senior in high school and trying all my best so I can graduate and give my son all a better future because he is my true love.

Single and PregnantWhen I was 15 years old, I got involved with a guy. We had known each other for many years and we decided to fool around. This was the summer of 2008. In September, I found out that I was pregnant. I was a few months shy of my sixteenth birthday. I wasn't thinking about presents for me. I was thinking of how to tell my parents, what I was going to do, etc. I told them in October. My dad was beyond furious and my mom was pretty upset. But they both were supportive in the end. Those nine months waiting were full of many different emotions. By the third trimester, I was excused from school to take care of myself and prepare for the baby. On April 20, 2009, my beautiful baby girl was born. I told the father right when she was born. He didn't want anything to do with her. So I raised her for about a year with the help of my parents. She came before anything I wanted to do. As a teenager, my life got real stressful because I wanted to be with my friends and do what teenagers do. But I was a teen mom and if I wanted to go somewhere or do something, Samantha went with me. Finally, I decided to give her up for adoption. I know I should've done that right when she was born, but I couldn't. Giving her up after a year was the hardest thing I ever did. I miss my little girl, but I know I did the right thing to let her go and be raised in a good family environment and have things that I didn't. Even though she's with a new family, I'll always remember her smile, her laugh, her cry, and the way she loved her mommy. Thank you for reading.
you don't know love til you have a babyWhen I was 15 I met the guy I thought I would be with 4-ever.We had a good relationship at 1st thought we could do anything as long as we were 2geather,we were 2geather 2 yrs when i found out I was pregnant.we had talked about having a baby & thought it would keep us 2geather no matter what but I had a very strick mom & when she found out she was MAD but eventually got through it.Me & my boyfriend at the time had discussed a baby just so I could move in with him,but after I started thinking i'm to young I got my whole life ahead of me it happen.I had a beautiful son & moved in with my son's father everything seemed good until he thought being a dad was hanging with the guys & leaving my son with my mom while I worked everyday,so when my son was 8mos old we split for good.I stayed a single mom worked all the time almost missed my son walk.6mos later I met the man I'm married to now even though we had our up's & downs we made it.we've been 2geather a little over 3yrs & things r great & we r expecting our 1st child 2geather in 4mos.My son is 4yrs old now & so smart he's in pre-k & is my world even though I thought I was ready & wasnt.His dad is still in his life half the time,hes in the military & is married with another baby,he still hasn't grown up fully but I don't think men ever do.The 1 thing I can say to any girl out there make sure its love not lust be 4 u give ur all to a guy.A baby is a HUGE responsiability.When u have 1 ur life will never be the same,no more partying,hanging with friends cause half of them will stop talking to u b/c u have a baby & can't do as u plz.Just think be 4 u act on any situation that will head u for young motherhood.
