my name is kalen and i was 16 when i first got pregnant by this guy L.A. we were in love we had been dating on and off for a few years and was being sexually active for a while with no protection so one day it was the end of the school year final exams was going on and we decided to skip our exams and go to a friends house right down the road from school and hang out and come back and check in and leave again and not even take our exams so thats what we did...but before we left our friends house to go back to school to check in we had sex in the woods behind her house well a few weeks later we found out i was pregnant i was scared and didnt kno what to do i was only a kid and he didnt care about anything but gettin high and running around with his buddies but he stuck with me for a while i told my big sister and she cried she went and bought me a test because i didnt take one i just knew i was pregnant so i took it and sure enough it was positive so i couldnt tell my mom by my self and L.A. wanted to tell her with me but my sister didnt think that was such a good idea so one night i had my sister come over because she wasnt living with us and we told my mom she was very upset she didnt talk to me for like 2 days and all she did was cry so then me my mom LA my aunt and uncle all had a sit down and talked about what we wwas going to do about this situation we got our selves into well at first we was going to keep the baby but i soon reliazed if i did i would be a single teen mom just like my mom was and all alone he wasnt going to step up and help or anything so me and him came to the decision to go to dallas tx and get an abortion done i was 10 weeks when i had it done he went with me as did my mom aunt and uncle but as soon as we was back he was gone and of course school comes around and i am a slut and did it behind his back and all this other shit it was very hard proably one of the hardest things i have ever had to deal with but i look back now and relalize it was for the best i wouldnt have been able to go through an adoption and i couldnt have kept the baby i would have been wrong to do that because i knew i couldnt have given the baby a better life and give him or her what he or she desreved so its taken me 3 years to get over what i did but i am now 19 i finished high school and got a steady job married and pregnant and very happy about it me and my now husband planned this one and we cant wait until he gets here but i still hurt from what i did especially since i am pregnant now and having this one but i kno what i did was best for me at the time or i wouldnt be anywhere near where i am now i dont regret anything i did but i still hurt and it will haunt me for the rest of my life and never go away i am not proud of it but not really assamed either most ppl are against abortion and i was too until i was put in that situation and when your put in a situation like that u never kno what your gonna do....i am now expecting a little boy JUSTUS LEEGE and i cant wait to meet him i wouldnt trade this baby or my husband for anything in this entire world...
My Baby BoyHi, My name is Celeste I'm currently 17 years old, and while most 17 year old girls are just gaining freedom...i'm losing it. Weird thing is I couldn't be happier about it. I'm happy because I now have a wonderful person in my life, one that i know won't leave me...no not some 18 year old boy who says he'll love me forever, but the little 15 month old boy that i call son. His name is Bently Dace Cooper...he has the last name of his father. Even though me and his father wernt together for my pregnancy and the first 10 moths of Bently's life.His dad Landon Rae Cooper and I are now together.Hopefully we will stay that way...but life's funny like that, you may be sad about it one day then the next relize that your child is the best thing to happen to you and no one in the world can change that.
My Jr YearHi my name is Mary Lou Pena. I'm from Brackettville Texas and I had a baby girl doing my Jr year. Well when I found out that I was going to have a baby well it change your life. witch means where i go my baby goes. I love my daughter she is my world her dad loves her. i take my daughter to see her dad. we get along good. its hard to have a baby when your in school. no lie but you have to learn that having a baby is going to be hard cause you have to take them to the doctors, buy pampers, milk, clothes and stuff. you want your child to be safe and have a good life give them what they need. Don't let anyone tell you that your not a good mom cause you are.

He Helped Me Grow UpWhere do I start..... I was 17 when I found out I was pregnant. I actually didn't find out till I was 4 months. When I told my son's father he told me to get an abortion. We were not together through out the whole pregnancy. He was there to watch my beautiful son be born on May 19th 2010. Dominick (my son) helped me realize a lot. After Dominick was born his father and I tried to work things out but then he cheated on me with my used to be best friend. That is the last time I ever tried to work things out because I have realized that I am spend too much time thinking of him instead of my baby. I am 19 now my son will be one this month. I am scheduled to graduate May 28th and I am also in the Army National Guard. I chose this career to make a better life for my son and I. I Love You Dominick Rafael Ortega con todo mi corizon!!!! To all the teen mother DON'T EVER LET A MAN TAKE THE PLACE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT PERSON IN YOUR LIFE : YOUR BABY!!! BE STRONG, KEEP YOUR HEAD UP HIGH AND NEVER LISTEN TO PEOPLE WEN THEY JUDGE YOU!!!
