teen moms, I have a question..

 So, I had my son super young.  I got preggo at 14 and had him at 15.  I love my son dearly, and I wouldn't trade this life for anything in the world, but knowing what I know now I would have given adoption a better chance.  Although his life hasn't been a shitty one by any means, I wouldn't have been able to do any of it without the help of my dad, some great people at the daycare he went to, and really close friends.  And I know that if he had been adopted that he would have had a much more normal and stable life from the start. 

I dont regret my decision, but if I could go back in time and do it differently I would have considered it.

Do any of you feel the same way?

I should have, yes. I even called an adoption agency and didn't follow through.

I don't.  I was 18 when I got pregnant, and 19 when I had her.  I was living with DH (who was at the time DF), we made ends meet, and we were both very ready for a baby.  We're married now, it's ben 7 years since DH and I got together, 6 years since I had DD, and I'm due in two weeks with baby #2.  For me, even though I was a teen mom, I was ready and had a great situation.  I know this is not the norm for many teen moms.  Dh was, at the time we got together and I got pregnant, 21.

Well she did say she was 24 at the time...lol. I'm pretty sure she knew she wasn't a teen mom.

I had my ds at 19. It's been difficult at times but he's had a great life. I would have done anything differently
