Hi my name is Anita and i had my first child at 15(son) and my second at 18(daughter). My son is now 15 and my daughter is about to be 13. Enjoy the time when they are young, they really do grow so Fast. Keep them busy in sports and other activities as they get older it keeps them out of trouble.

i had my son aiden when i was 19... im now 22 and he just turned 3. i love him to death he actually really made me grow up and learn how to be an adult before having him i was just a typical teenager partying and never going to school. so having him was a blessing in my life.

I had my little girl Keira when I was 19, and im still 19 :) She is 4 months old today! It definatly helped me. It made me realize there are things out there soooo much more important and amazing then me or my partner or life itself! She has changed me for the better, I work hard now to make her life as great as possible. My family is my world.

Hi, My name is Annie. I was 18 years old when I had Anthony. He is now 4 months and I have recently turned 19. I love him so much! I wouldn't trade him or being a mother for the world. It has made a better and more loving person. Being a mother is an experience in it's own and every woman should experience it!

Hey! I'm Sydney and I had my first daughter when I was 17 ( aug 07). Now I'm 19, almost 20 and I just had another little girl (nov 09). I dropped out of high school right before my senior year. I regret that since I only would've had 2 classes per semester. But now I'm in a program to get my adult high school diploma, all I need to grad. is english 4, which should only take me a couple of months. It may be difficult having children so young, but I wouldn't have it any other way- just remember, we'll still be young when our kids our grown ( more time for us to spend with them ) so I consider it a blessing!!

Hi Brittney! My name is Crystal and I was 18 when I had my son Aiden. I was in the last 6 months of high school when i found out I was pregnant, and on June 26, 2008 I crossed the stage to graduate! I am now 20 years old and Aiden is almost 17 months. He has in more ways than one saved my life. For years I had been struggling with depression and in the summer of 2009 I honestly can say him and his father aka my soon to be husband, were the only reason I am still here today. I love them both more and more each day. They have forever changed me. Thanks for listening. ♥

heyy brittney my names ashley. i was 15 when i got pregnant and 16 when i had my daughter. although her father didnt stay around long its honestly the best thing that has ever happened in my life i dont know where i would be without her she is my whole life. but i was fortunate enough to find someone who cares alot about me and her and wants a future with us. but i did have to drop out of school because i dont like leaving her with anyone to watch i want her with me all the time and everywhere i go. there are ups and downs but i wouldnt have it any other way and i am looking forward to more kids in the future. after i get a job an amy own place so i know i can support them and dont have to rely on others.

Hi everyone. My name is Katrina and i had my daughter 3 months after i turned 18 and graduated from high school. Having a daughter so young was defiatly a challenge but i wouldn't trade it for anything in the world. Other then having to postpone going to college nothing much is different.

Hey ladies,
I had my son right after I turned 18. Luckily I have A LOT of help from my boyfriend, he watches him all day while I go to college and while I do homework. It was pretty hard since I became pregnant at the end of my senior year in high school then had him my first semester in college (and went right back to school 2 days later) but I am doing much better now.

Hey Brittney! :) I'm Kyrsten && my daughters name is Hayley. I was 17 when I had her on April 5, 2009 & now I'm almost 19 && she's about to turn 1 in a lil over a month! & I wish I hadn't have had a baby so young, I wanted to finish school & go to college for Cosmetology but I had to put that on hold because of her. But I'm perfectly fine with it because she's made me grow up so much. She's my heart & soul && I wouldn't trade her for the world. I might have had her young but I wouldn't take her back for anything. She's amazing :) Good luck girl!

I was 16 when I got pregnant and 17 when I had my daughter! Now I'm 21 with a 4 year old! Can't believe how fast that went...It has helped me because she is my inspiration and why I keep going to college because I want to be able to make a better life for her. It gets hard sometimes because I have to balance out my time.I had to grow up fast. So I did miss out a lot of things that young people do for fun that don't have kids. With being a mom I have different fun and that is with my DAUGHTER! I would want it any other way. I love being a mom and all the challenges that come with it! Her dad and I are still together he helps out a lot. It gets difficult at times but we work though it. I encourage all young moms to keep going with their education and to NEVER give up! Because all of your dreams and ambitions can come true! And to fail is to have never of tried!

I was a few months shy of 20 when I got pregnant. Alice is 2 months old and I'm almost 21 now. My mom and my grandma all had babies when they were 20 though..pretty cool.

I was 20 years old when I had my first son. At 22 years old, I now have a toddler and a 3-month old baby. Life is very stressful sometimes. But extremely rewarding. I often wonder about what my life would have been like if they weren't in the picture. I regret nothing.

I haven't had my daughter yet, but I will be 2 months shy of 23. I can't wait, and I don't foresee any problems in my life with having her so young. The way I see it, when she graduates high school, I will still be young enough to do things with her, and when she becomes a mother, I'll be young enough to play with my grandbaby!!! I look forward to it. My mom had me when she was 20 and she is my best friend, besides my husband of course...
