I am a teen mom myself, 19 now. I had my son after I turned 17, his birthday is today. He just turned 2. Soon after I found out I was pregnant me and my husband got married. I was 16, and to be honest it has been heaven. My husband and I are in love as we have always been. I am a stay at home mom while my husband works. I went back to school and got my GED at the beginning of the year. We own our home, and our cars are paid off. We have 2 dogs 2 fish and 1 cat. We don't get any help from the government, or help from family. I know a lot of teen moms have problems with their children(s) father, or just problems in general. I also know that there are a lot of wonderful young mothers, that over come ever single problem they ever faced. I have not had any of those problems.. My son is well behaved, and very loved. He is on target with his weight, a little on the short side for his age, like me! He is smart and is learning to talk at an amazing rate. I don't have many problems, and I am happy with were I am in life. A lot of people think I missed out on stuff, such as going away to collage and stuff, but if I had never had my son I would have never finished school, or bothered to pull myself out of poverty.
I was just wondering..
How many of you are Teen Mothers and how are you handling it?
How many of you are older mothers and What do you think of teen moms?
