I became a teen mom in 1974. The stigma then was very different. I was only able to give birth successfully once and am so glad I chose to be/stay a teen-mom. My age is much different than the majority, but I will try to be a good friend and listener when needed.
The school system I attended would not allow a girl to go to school if she was pregnant. So, I had to wait until my class would have graduated and get my General Education Diploma. Be all you can be girls and don't stop believin' in yourselves!
