  • my best friends mom has been with the same guy since age of 16 they had jessica when they were 16 jennifer (my friend at 18) then lindsy at age 27 then rylee at 37 and she is now 11 months and i can't believe they are still together i find that is so great that dads will step up and take responsibility at that young of an age i hope my boyfriend will be that way when i tell him i am pregnant

  • i had my DD at 19. I just handled it. I did what i had to do & i did it well. she is almost 10 & is a very sweet, nice young lady/ Just love them all you can & enjoy the time you have with them. You'll miss it when they're my DD's age & all of a sudden "too cool" for you...

    These young ages fly by....enjoy it the best way you know how because you will miss it one day. Smile & be grateful that you have two beautiful kids. Your love for them will always pull you through.

  • Just so u know,a dad is someone who is there for your little girl and loves her and cares for her. It is not about who the sperm donor was!

  • I have a similar story...i got prego with my daughter at 19 and my son at 21. My kids are 15mths apart. Only difference for me was I was in the Navy...and married. But soon after my son was born we got divorced and I moved back to my home town (still in the Navy) and now Im with the love of my life and have been for 3 years. Being a young mom was (is) tough but I wouldnt trade how things happened for anything.
