I was an honor roll student, star athlete and still completely stupid! Don't get me wrong I am not knocking myself if any way but there is no better way to descibe getting pregnant at 16 because no protection was used. I know how hard it can be to hear all the comments of "what a shame it is", "she could have made something of herself", "it is going to be such a tough road for her", "that poor baby won't have a future" all the wonderfull little comments that people can and will make only made me want to work that much harder at proving them wrong about how having a child young just ruins your life.
Please feel free to say anything on here that you just need to get out and please ask away about anything you need to. I just want to be a voice of experience for anyone who needs me.
Please note that I did not fall into a life of ruin. I worked full-time and raised my daughter for the past 16 years and she has turned out far better than I could have ever asked. I am now the mother of two more beautiful children ages 3 and 18 months. I have a wonderful husband and I run a home daycare so I still know a little bit about being a mom to a little one again.
