I was 17 and in my senior year of high school. I was excited to be an honor student and get ready to go off to college the following year. My life changed the moment I found out I was pregnant though. It wasn't something I planned nor was it something that I thought would or could happen to me. I was kicked out of my mother's house, I had to leave school early and I didn't think my life could ever be better. I went into a deep depression and even considered abortion. Today, I have my own home, car and college degree. I am still in school working on my second degree. I am happily married and have amazing children. If you are a teen mom and would love to hear a story about teen pregnancy that is real and raw I wrote a book about my journey, "Feathers of a Phoenix" on amazon kindle now. It's my testimony from the biggest test of my life. xoxo. Hope it helps someone.
