Is it so strange that I kept my daughter?

I was raped when I was 16 and it resulted in pregnancy. I kept my daughter and am raising her.

I figured some rape victims that resulted in pregnancy would be the same, but I actually hear very few stories like mine.

Is it that strange?

I dont think it is weird. I guess a lot of ladies find it hard to see the child that resulted from rape even though it is still apart of the mom. Hats off to you for keeping your daughter :)

No, but good for you that you could handle it! It happened to me when I was 14 but there is some contravercy as to if it was rape. Either way i love him more than anything.

Not strange at all. How's it working for you? Why did you keep your baby?

Sorry to eat you were raped.

I was raped when I was 12, and got pregnant. My son was born when I was 13. I kept and raised him. Most women aren't that open about being raped, let alone getting pregnant.

I think it's great that you kept your child. I would do the same thing in that situation. To me, that would be MY child, no matter who the father was.

It's rare, but not strange IMO.
