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.
Hi! My name is Leah Cash. I found out I was pregnant June 4th, 2009 (1 hour before my graduation ceremony). I told my boyfriend of 4 years about the news and he assured me we would be fine and we'd talk about it later. I told my mom a week later when she reminded my to send my information into the college I was planning on attending. She was upset at first, but it was because she knew it would be hard for me. She told my dad and they were very supportive of mine and Daniel's choice to keep our baby. Daniel's family was supportive also. I was one month pregnant when I found out and our son Jace was born on Feb. 7th. My boyfriend currently works full time at a plant and goes to school at night. I attend a nearby college during the day to get my degree in History, secondary education. There are a lot of sacrifices to be made in raising a child, but every single one is worth it. My boyfriend and I love Jace more than anything.

Sadly SingleHello my name is Tierra i am 16 and i have a 3month old baby boy names Devin...When I first found out that i was pregnant i was super excited but worried about how I would explain it to my parents. It was 4 days before my boyfriend's birthday and i thought that telling him we were having a baby would make his birthday even better,Sadly when i told Kevin about our baby he got up from the dinner table and left me at the resturant all alone and i spent all of my last money on his birthday gift and dinner plus my cellphone battery was dying so i had noway home and the resturant was alllll the way across town and i who was 4 months pregnant at the time had to walk all the way home now i know what your thinking how was she 4 months pregnant and did not know well im not the averge girl i am plus size so when i was getting bigger from pregnacy i thought i was eating alot... But niw that my son has been born no one from Kevin's family nor Kevin has came to see my son or bought him anything...And since the day Kevin left me at the resturant on his birthday i havent talked to him i seen him at the mall about 3weks ago and he and his new girlfriend was going into a baby store. I went home and called my bestfriend and rumor has it SHE'S PREGNANT...BUT not by him by another guy she cheated on Kevin with. I dont know what i did wrong but as long as i have Devin in my life I'll be fine..
single mommy name is ashley im 16 years old and i have a 7 month old baby girl. When i found out i was pregnant i was scared but excited. I knew that i was going to have a little person that belonged only to me!! I mean well to my fiance and myself. my fiance was so supportive when i told him of the pregnancy. He took me to my appointments. one day we were at his house and he was rubbing my tummy and out of no were he asked me to marry him. of course i said yes! he took my virginity and i was in love with him. my baby girl is my world and i am the sun. She is my everything. i LOVE having my own little family. Dylan and i are stronger than ever and little baby girl elania just made it that much stronger. So if your pregnant dont get sad its a blessing.!!
Birthday GiftHi My name is Carmen and I am 32 weeks pregnant.
Sadly, the father was too much of a coward to stay with me because he didn't want to face responsibilities. I found I was pregnant 2 days before my birthday April 7. I had been pregnant for three months and I didn't know. Or I knew but I didnt want to believe that it was true.
I told him that I was pregnant and he just ran to his mommy and let her to all the talking. Anyways, I was lucky enough to have my friends to support me, and my mom. Though we have our ups and downs but I am really glad shes here for me and supporting me * emotionally*!
Oh I forgot I am 15! The youngest so far! :(
I knew that what I was doing was stupid but obviously I didnt use condoms or the pill. Other than that, I already have everything for my baby and I am really excited and I know that this happened for a reason! I want to be the best mom I can be and i don't need a man to help me. I was tempted to go and beg for him to stay with me but I had my mom to tell me that what I was going to do was ridiculous and very shameful. So I am going to be a single mom and I am proud to be one!
And all the girls out there should be too. If the guy doesn't want to be with you or he abuses you. He's worthless and dont stay with him just because your baby needs a father ( Thats the worse excuse you can find). The truth hurts and the truth is that the baby is better off being without a father than actually having one. :)
Be strong! And now you have a baby to look out for. and the best part is that you will grow up with your baby, so you are not alone!
And I realize that now! :)
I can't wait to see my little angel! I am due in October! So time is running out and Im very excited! :)
