I Love Being A Mom

Growing up and seeing someone my age at school pregnant wasn't nothing new to me. I just never thought it could happen to me... June of 2003 right before my 16 birthday... I and a close friend of mine for years decided to take it a step further. Soon after a new I was pregnant, I just had that feeling. I didn’t know what to do… I was having to much fun and didn’t want a baby. Eventually my mom found out and we had a meeting to discuss what was going to happen with him and his mom. They wanted me to have the baby but bottom line it was up to me and I made the choice to have an abortion. While I was trying to set up an appointment and figure out prices he came over every chance he could. He would want to rub my belly and talk about it… He convinced me to have the baby and be together. I had the support from my family and on April 5, 2004 I gave birth to my most handsome son at the age of 16. Things were good for the most part of our relationship, we had are up’s and down’s being young. A few months after my sons first birthday we found out that we were expecting yet again. We were both happy and it seemed like everything couldn’t be more perfect. January 2006 I gave birth to my beautiful baby girl. I was 18 years old with two kids and still the happiest mother ever. I didn’t care what people had to say. We are no longer together because of different goals in life but I wouldn’t think about trading them for the world.

I returned to school and will admit it’s hard but so worth it. I earned my associates in business/banking and working on my bachelors…


Still pushing on

I hate how people judge me, the way they look at me when they find out I'm an 18 year old single mother. I found out that i was pregnant right before my senior year of high school. My boyfriend and I had been together for 2 years and I honestly thought I was going to marry him. When I was 6 months along I found out he was cheating on me. I refuse to teach my daughter it is okay to let a man treat you that way, so I left him. I had my daughter (Kelly) about a month before my 18th birthday, and I graduated (with honors) a few months later. Now I am a full time college student trying to balance school and home life. My choice wasn't the smartest one, but I wouldn't change it for the world. I just want to let people know that not all teenage moms are "permiscuous" and we are certainly not stupid. People make mistakes, but God does not and we were ment to have our babies for reasons beyond understanding.


just keep trying

i got pregnant when i was 15. fun, huh? NOT. my boyfriend and i had been dating for 6 months, broke up, and then i found out a week later that i was indeed pregnant. i did not tell him, even though he would find out anyway. so when i came back to school junior year with a belly, he freaked shit. i told him that i want nothing to do with him and that i can give birth to and raise this baby girl all by myself. so, that i did. on december 2, 2008, Valeree Nicole was born. she is the light of my eyes, and the essence of my breath. i dont know how teen moms say that having a baby made their lives harder, because my baby relieves me of my stresses. in the end, i do not regret any desicion i made.


Teen Moms Can Do It!

I was 16 when i got pregnant. I broke up with my sons father in the first couple of months after my sons birth.He is still in my sons life and pays child support. My son is now 4 years old, and i am a college graduate with a degree in law enforcment, a home owner, married to an amazing man who treats my son great.and rasing my son to be an amazing man. I hate reading these articles about how teen moms will never achieve their goals and i just want you all to know that you can do whatever you put your mind to!
