Thanks for all of your input.
8 weeks and counting! Im getting more excited haha. Still terrified, but I guess its getting better. My family life hasn't been exactly desirable...(my mom left my father, little brother, and me when I was 9 *my brother was 2* and my dad started drinking and doing drugs, became insanely abusive, and laughed every time he hit my brother or me. I have decided that when I turn 18, Im going to try to adopt my little brother *now 10* so he can have a better chance at life. So far, everything is good. The social worker says as long as I keep my job and I get a decent appartment, hes as good as mine, which we are both very happy about.)...I don't want that life for my baby. Sure, raising 2 kids as a teen will be hard, but I love my brother like a son and hes excited to have a baby around the house.
My question is, how do I avoid doing to my baby what my parents did to us?
