  • It was 2 weeks before my 18th Birthday, I was in college, beginning my life. I didn't have any money, and I certainly wasn't ready, but you learn. You adjust. You have to. It's your new job, and probably the only one that you will actually love.

  • My kids were all planned and we were "trying" so I was very excited. I never got nervous until much later! LOL!

  • When I was 18 I got pregnant with my first child, I decided not to have an abortion, against the father's will. I was really scared and nervous, the father left me a few months after I had my son. I didn't plan it, I didn't have a lot of money, I worked as a waitress and barely made it. But I don't regret it.
    It was the same for my daughter, it was just bad timeing for my daughter, I was older, 25 but wasn't married, and I still never went to college or nothing, so I didn't have a good job to support another child. It's always scary I think to bring another life into the world. I would pray about if you believe. If not, just believe in yourself, know that you have the power within you to be a good mother. It may or may not come naturally. It didn't for me with my son. but we grow from our mistakes. Good luck to you!
