Once a teen mom...always a teen mom...?

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.

I love your story. I was 16 and didn't finish high school - then went on to get a GED, finished undergrad and then finished my MBA - I loved the challenge, what I found out is that when I hit 40 and was an empty nester, I needed to really focus on developing sides of me that got stuck at 16. So if you have a chance to work through some issues - try to do it now. so great you have a story of success! way to go!

i have a story like that also! i lived with my mother for a few years and all she did was drink alcohol and do drugs ( which she had done my whole life) instead of being a support system for me while i was in school i got ok grades but she just said well you need to do better and get them up, and she lived with her boyfriend who was also a complete A-hole who had 3 kids that didnt know how to treat people with respect, so i ended up running away from there dropping out of school and moving to colorado where i met my husband and got my ged and now i have an amazingly beautiful daughter
