I'm going to start off by saying this is not meant to be rude.
I know I say this a lot in my posts when relevant but I am a teenage mother. For the four years my daughter has been alive I've been told how I shouldn't make the same "mistake" again and how getting pregnant young was a "mistake." But all I ever hear is: "your child is a mistake." I know no one intends that but that's how I feel when they say that. Now, I'm not saying I meant to get pregnant at 14 but I don't think it was a "mistake." A mistake is a typo in an essay or accidentally running a red light, all things you do unknowingly. I made the decision to have sex young with the knowledge of what the consequences could be. I consider it simply a choice. I haven't made that same choice twice and I don't plan to. Since having my child I decided to wait until I am married to do anything of that nature.
So to those of you that have ever said it before, just imagine how hurt you would be if someone called your child a mistake
And to those of you that have been told this throughout your life, your child is not a mistake and their life should be just as cherished as any other child in this world of ours.
