I have to boys ages 2 and 1.They are Irish twins i had one in January of 2008 and December of 2008.I am only 18 turning 19. But let me tell u i wouldnt change anything.They are the greatest thing that has ever happend to me.After staying at home for about a year and a half i got them into daycare and went bac to school.I will be going to college in september.Dont let anyone ever tell you that you cant do something and that your crazy for have 2 kids so young.Things happen for a reason and sometimes they are for the best.No matter the age you have your kid(s) all that matters is that you love them and take care of them and you can still have a great future for yourself as well as your children. Even though sometimes it can get rough just keep ur head up high and looked into those beautiful childrens eyes and it will seem as if everything is okay again. Children are lifes greatest miricles really:)

Thats great! I unfortunately dropped out of college, for several reasons, but I do plan on returning. I hope that you continue with your education. It will make it so much easier to take care of your babies. I really do wish you the best of luck with everything. Do you have help/support from their dad?

I had 3 kids ( all boys) by the time I was 24. I am now 32 years old and my oldest will soon be 15. I do agree with everyone that Ashley was just looking for support... there is no reason to be judgemental because obviously, we all have not made the wisest decisions in our life.. even though we wouldn't change them for the world!!

@Ashley Martin, We're here to be supportive. Not to run a police interrogation and ask questions that were really none of your business.


I had my first boy when I was 18, he's 2 now. I'm due with my second in may. It's good to see a very young mom step up and take care of her children from such a young age. Congratulations to you.

I only had one kid and she the most wonderful that happened to me.
My daughter is my life,and yes I am a teen mom. THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH THAT.
Just b/c we're teens doesn't mean we can't support our children.
I had my daughter when I was 17.
There are girls that just think life is over but it's not.
I'm still in High school and going to college.
If ppl work at it,then they can do it just like any 30 yrd old woman can

To Shalene L-Im happy for you i personally think it's good to have kids close together, my kids are 16months apart, and act like the best of friends, and laugh and play together all the time, sure at times they don't get a long the best, but overall, they're always by each others side even though they're both still very young.

I had my son when i was 16. But i was lucky and his daddy was just involved as i was. We graduated High School 2 years early by doing a study on your own thing and began our life as a family. We bought a house when we were 19 and also had our baby girl when we were 19 too. Its hard but you can do it. Love, pacients and hard work. :)

Ashley Martin u sound pretty judgemental to me...I know u may not mean to but I can relate to Ashley W. so be careful on how u say things or ask questions. So for Ashley Weston I can totally relate to what u are goin through although I am a bit older I had my first who is a boy at 17 and am 7 months pregnant with my second which is a girl. Being a parent can be tough but keep ur head up.

iam 19 i have an 11 month old and im almost 3 months pregnant..im excited..& im happy that you have two healthy kidss:)

this is for ashley martin: i dont understand why you are asking her all those questions like you are writing some type of book..she is looking for support not someone to jump down her throat..there is nothing wrong with having two kids within two years..would you have preferred her to have an abortion or give the baby up?she is doing what she needs to do for her children and all your questions are irrevelant..

Not to sound judgmental but it seems that you didnt learn about protection after the first? As someone who was a teen mother herself I can understand one but two within 2 years? Do they have the same fathers? Are you married to the father, or planning to be? does the father(s) pay support to the kids? Do you work, and if so are you finishing high school as well? What kind of birth control are you on? Did you think after your daughter was born that you wanted to get pregnant right away again or were you taking precautions to not fall into the statistic of teenagers who have another child within 2 years of their first?

I dont mean to come off cold in any way but I am just curious& trying to get a better hold on your situation?
