Alright so, Me and my SO and our daughter are finally moving out of his mothers house! I'm a young mom, will be 18 in less than a month. SO is 21. DD is 6 months, almost 7. And we thought moving out would be impossible. Renting is stupidly expensive here.. and government funded housing is kind of impossible to get approved for.

So.. thankfully, we have a family friend who is a real estate agent, and well, were buying a house! Which we found out is more affordable than renting, and our money isn't going down the drain!! plus, its OUR house. :)

Well, we looked at a few and fell in love with a cozy townhouse in our pricerange. The taxes on it were very high, but just as we went to the office to write an offer, the house got sold right from under us. Me and SO are looking at a few more promising places. One is a single family house in the county and the taxes are much cheaper. More house for our money! Ugh, please wish us luck. We NEED more space. There isn't much around here that is actually in a good area, with good schools. We want the best for DD... We have to stay for 3-5 years in order for the program that were in go through. I'm excited, worried, happy all at the same time. I hope we find our home sweet home soon <3

We are starting the house hunting process too. It is exciting and frightening all at the same time. Good luck to you and your little family.

Praying for the best for you.  I've been to Baltimore several times & know that parts of it are not so good, parts are; I was born in DC, raised in PG County MD, but now live in VA.  Where I was raised, I wouldn't want to live there now & it was great when I was growing up!  Being a teen mom is hard enough as it is.  At least you & your SO are trying to do what is best for your family; keep up the good work.
