i swear all my friends are getting pregnant like dominoes and i seriously think its because they are romanticizing babies. i love my son but i realize that i definitely did not have to have him at 20. they are adorable but i wish i was ready emotionally to handle a baby because really im a mess of a mother. i wish i was more careful and emotionally mature to handle a baby before i even thought of having sex. what about you? im not trying to bash because some 15 year old mothers are VERY mature and if i had a baby at 30 i probably still wouldnt have been emotionally ready, im just curious.

Alicia, I think it is a sign of a good mother when you realize that it is a monumental responsibility and feel inadequate! It proves how much you care about doing right by your son.
I do agree with you, however. I know at 20 I thought I was ready to be a mother, but now feel that I would NOT have coped well. I didn't become a mother until I was 31 and still often feel overwhelmed! Quite frankly, the mothers who worry me are the ones who seem to think they have it all together! I never want to be so secure in my own abilities that I quit turning to God guidance!
