  • Enjoy your baby and try to be the best mother you possibly can with the resources that you have. Accept the fact that you are a mother, embrace it and understand that life for you will be much different then your other 16 year old friends. You now have the biggest responcibily in the world and that is taking care and raising your little girl and that should be your number 1 priority. I hope that helps. If you need anything or have any questions feel free to PM anytime. Best of luck!

  • Minute after minute remember this: You decided to bring this child to the world under this circumstances, you must find a way to make it work always keeping your child's best interest at heart.

    Life as you knew it is gone, now is all about your child and you need to think what will benefit her more, you not having an education or you getting one. So, focus on your school that is the best way you can help your child to have a better future.

    Congrats and remember, you are a mom not a teen any more, luxuries like the mall and movies are gone, now is all about that precious life you decide to bring into this world. Make the best you can for her and it will be okay.
