AloneI am 21 and a single mother to an awsome 2 year old boy!
When I ot pregnant I was just starting my senior year of high school and i was scared to death. The night i found out i was with my best friend at the time, I called the father and the only thing he could do was tell me that i was lying. After that I refused to believe it cause no i was 17 this cant happen to me, i am just starting my life. Three months into it I had to do something about it, I had to tell my mom because as much as i wanted it to it wasnt going away. I told my mom and she was pissed (she was a teenage mom herself), she didnt want me to turn out like her, she wanted better for me. After a fews day it really sunk it that this was happening i was going to be a teenage mother. After that things just went, well they went.
My mom and dad were very supportive, my dad more so then my mom. Mom went to every doctor appt with me, rubbed my feet when they hurt and made fun of my growing belly. The father gave me nothing but hell. Soon after i told him about it he got a new girlfriend and she gave me nothing but hell telling me it wasnt his kid, i was gonna be a horrible mom. She got my phome number some how and started calling my phone and finally i had enough. i called him and told him what was going on, i also told him that i may be 6 months pregnant but i was getting ready to beat the crap outta his girlfriend. Not 10 minutes later he called me back and told me they broke up.
By my 6 month things started getting bad with everything i started to feel as if i didnt have no one. my friends were always out partying anmd drinking but i couldnt. then they started to tel me how i was making a big mistake and i couldnt go through with this. But i knew i was strong and could do anythign i put my mind to.
July 9 (my due date) came and went with nothing. By July 16 I was in the hospital ready to deliever my baby boy. 17 hours of labor and a emergency c-section later i had a 8lb 12oz baby boy named Nioclas. And everything was perfect. My family was there, my son father was there telling me he was goning to be there for me and that we would be one happy family.
My son in now 2 1/2 years old and my sons afther hasnt seen him this that day. I graduated high school, and work full time. I have so much help from my family that i am one of the luckiest people there is. i couldnt be happier with they way things turned out.
My son father may not be there for my son but i think it is better thisway. i never pressured him into it and never took him to court for any kind of money. If he didnt want to be part of his life that was his lost and i didnt want anyting from him.
My son is my everything. my heat. my soul. he is truly my world. to this day my own mother will tell you that she may have been upset that i got pregnant at 17 but he saved my life. I was heading down the wrong road and hanging with tyhe wrong people.
I may get depressed and feel the pressure and think i cant do it anymore but the truth is i wouldnt have it any other way.
So if your a teenage mom or about to be one just remember if i can do it so can you. no matter what you think, you can. no job didnt finish school and no baby daddy its all ok that baby needs nothing more then the love from his/her mother.
My BeginningMy name is Vanessa and i am 18. Today 3/2/2011 i found out that i was 12 weeks pregnant and not knowing who the father is and not even having my high school diploma. I don't work and move like every month i don't have a settle home or life. I am thankful for my sister opening her new apartment for me and my new baby. I am a first time mother and i have no idea what i am doing but i dont agree with abortion and adoption is still in mind head. I need to get everything sort out before i have this baby. I am so nervous and scared but i am thankful i have these both amazing sisters behind me helping me along the way.
