Let me tell you when I got pregnant at 17 I believed and everyone around me made me believe that my life as I knew it was over and to tell you the truth it was. During my pregnancy I was angry, disappointed, and lost I pushed my family and my bf away didn't want to know about anyone or anything I became so depressed I didn't care about anything not me,not my bf, not my family, at times not even my baby. The persistence of my family and bf soon made all the difference especially my bf no matter how much I pushed him away or how many times I ran him out of my parents house he told me he would always be there for his baby girl even if I didn't want him there for me. I am 21 now, I married my then bf on Nov. 2011, my baby girl just turned 3 this last month and I gave birth to a baby boy Jan 2014. My life hasn't been at all the way I knew it or the way I planned it to say the least. I am proud to say that all the odds that are against "teen moms" I have been able to over come, but of course with the help and support of my husband. I am working on my Nursing degree and my husband is starting off his Law Enforcement career. I guess what I want to say is please don't think that your life is over and you are not going to be able to accomplish your dreams because now your a "teen mom" but instead adjust set new goals that are attainable, reasonable, and have a timely manner because trust me there are not enough hours in one day! Its hard but definitely not impossible, lets work hard so we are not another statistic.
